Once configured, each ‘down’ event for your check will push an ‘emergency’ notification to your device and automatically re-alert every 30 seconds until it is acknowledged, up to 5 minutes. Try sleeping through that!
Pushover notifications are faster and more reliable than SMS and are currently the only NodePing notification type that will persistently re-alert you when a check fails. Please consider switching your SMS alerts to Pushover alerts. It will also help us keep NodePing prices down as Pushover alerts are significantly cheaper than international SMS.
Once installed, simply add your Pushover ‘user key’ as a ‘Pushover’ notification type in your contact record and select that key when creating or editing a NodePing check.
For those who may be interested in viewing your check status in a native iOS app, one of our customers has created HostCheck using our API.
Let us know in the comments what NodePing feature you’ve been itching to see.
