Default Locking phone in 4.3 while using daydream

I wanted to know if its possible to lock my phone while also running day dream. For example when I place the phone on the charger it goes into day dream but it is not actually locked.

The reason this is important to me is that I have a Galaxy Gear and It wont receive notifications unless the device is locked.

I would like to be able to user the daydream and still receive notifications on my galaxy gear.

Any help is appreciated.
