The OutagesIO dashboard is your personal control panel to monitor your Internet outages.

How does OutagesIO find your Internet problems?

First, our software agent gets installed on a PC/server at your location or you use our optional dedicated hardware agent.

Once running, the software automatically finds and tracks Internet connection issues. Your OutagesIO control panel is reached using a PC/mobile and shows all disconnections and where Internet outages are happening with optional alerts.
We break it down into graphs and charts showing if the downtime is at your location, with your Internet provider, or even beyond.

An optional Extended reports upgrade adds historical, flexible notifications and other features.

Dynamic DNS (DDNS)

No need to remember changing IPs because a convenient URL is placed in your agent dashboard when DDNS is enabled as long as your agent is in Active status.

Automatic speed testing

Available in our Extended reports, when enabled, agents can automatically run speed testing based on various conditions. When the agent detects a slowdown based on latency and a short occasional speed test, it triggers a full speed test and results are shown in your dashboard. Alerts to low speeds can also be sent to you.

Historical / trends

When Extended reports are enabled, a new menu becomes available which goes well beyond the 50 events limits in the community dashboard. The ongoing historical data for this location helps members drill deeper for clues and trends that help the decision making process.

Flexible notifications

Another Extended reports feature lets you customize alerts and notifications as you want them. Flexible notifications allow various options and combinations that suit each locations requirements. Notifications can be email and/or dashboard alerts and SMS for Enterprise.

Enable security scan

Automatically monitor for unauthorized open ports or things that become unreachable like web servers and other devices. This Extended reports option continuously checks locations where agents are installed and alerts 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.
