Monitoring for as low a $1/month per location.

A minimum of 20 locations are needed to qualify for enterprise level. But enterprise members typically start in the dozens or hundreds, so volume pricing gets applied quickly, down to as little as $1/month per location.

Since hundreds of agents cannot be installed in a day, agents are considered billable once they run for 48hrs and the system will automatically determine the volume discount as IT personnel add locations.  Billing is automatically generated on the last day of each month. Total number of agents active and volume discount level is always shown in the agents’ list.

Overview map 

The organization overview map shows any and all locations needing attention along with what the alert is related to such as disconnected, unauthorized open port, a change in environment conditions and so on. Historical data and reports make it easy for IT to find and fix problems. Learn more.

Automatic speed testing 

Shows ongoing baseline test of download, upload speeds and latency for each location. Agents automatically run speed tests based on various conditions. Results are shown in each agent dashboard and average speeds are shown in the agents list. Low bandwidth alerts can also be set.

Internet speed testing

Historical / trends

Internet downtime add up in time, money and productivity losses. Accountability ends mystery problems and finger pointing. Hard facts are shown for each location monitored and correlated for all that were part of the same problem.

Enable security scan

Automatically monitor for unauthorized open ports or devices that become unreachable. This option continuously checks locations where agents are installed and alerts team members to any problems. 

The first step toward privacy, especially in light of net neutrality is finding DNS services which are not your providers and especially avoiding large well known publicly available free servers. Hardware agents ordered from our site come with a DNS server built in. 

Flexible notifications 

Team members can enable, disable or customize alerts and notifications for each location. Flexible notifications allow various options and combinations that suit each locations requirements. Notifications can be email, dashboard alerts, and optional SMS.

mobile and pc notifications

Dynamic DNS (DDNS)  OutagesIO includes free DDNS (Dynamic DNS) which can be enabled for any agent. Team members don’t need to remember changing IP’s because a convenient URL is placed in each agent dashboard when DDNS is enabled and the agent is in Active status.

Mix software and hardware agents as needed

Hardware agents are a one time cost and easier to work with because all of the software and functionality are built in. They operate 24/7 using less than one amp of power and are self updating. Monitoring is consistent and non stop unlike a PC or server that may be rebooted or turned off accidentally.  Perfect for remote locations such as cabins, customer premises, remote equipment rooms, cabinets and much more.

Connect a camera 

OutagesIO hardware agents allow a compatible (UVC) webcam to be connected. Access credentials, resolution and other settings are provided in the camera settings page and a convenient access link is placed in the dashboard.

Private DNS server 

OutagesIO hardware agents come with a DNS server built in. Use it for redundancy or for DNS privacy. Useful in cases where DNS profiling may be required, especially in light of net neutrality. Easily avoid provider DNS and large well known publicly available DNS services.

WiFi/LTE/4G/5G monitoring 

OutagesIO hardware agents can be used to monitor wired or wireless Internet services such as LTE 4G/5G. Enabling wireless monitoring is as simple as entering a few fields in the wireless section of the dashboard and the network will automatically switch to wireless or wired.

wireless, LTE, 4G/5G

Special options that work with our hardware agent:

Remote Access Service (RAS) 

Secure, encrypted access to remote LAN’s, networks without opening firewall ports.

One of the best OutagesIO RMM features is our Remote Access Service (RAS) that gives members direct access to devices on remote resources without having to open firewall ports. If there is nothing interesting for hackers to see, they will move on to another potential target.

RAS is the perfect way to give admins direct access to configuration screens, firewalls, even remote desktops (RDP) at remote customer networks, unmanned equipment rooms, cabinets and countless other situations.

Environment Sensors with alerts

Environment enabled hardware agents can be ordered which can run all of the Internet monitoring features above plus environment monitoring simultaneously.
The sensor monitors temperature, humidity, light, barometric pressure, sound, air quality, vibration and even seismic activity at the location it is installed at. Each metric can be set to alert someone if an upper or a lower threshold has been reached.

For example, if temperatures go below or higher than a set range or if humidity becomes too high, alerts can be sent. Notifications can be via email, dashboard and optionally SMS.

What do Internet outages and slowdowns cost your company, remote employees, or home-schooled students?

Monitor Internet downtimeProof and facts:  Sometimes it’s hard to for support to help remote people without enough information.

With OutagesIO installed at each remote location, IT can not only receive alerts to problems but have ongoing history to work with each Internet provider. Reports show details on Internet disconnections, outages, slow speeds and overall downtime. Reports can be shared, downloaded as an image or Excel.

Interruptions: It can take up to 23 minutes to get back on task when you’re interrupted. Which is one reason Internet downtime and dropped connections can be frustrating. Plus, network issues make working from home, online classes, and Zoom meetings tough.  Additionally, Internet outages can come and go, which makes finding the problem a challenge. OutagesIO helps by showing you where the problems are happening.
