Hands on experience
With a history in the ISP and MSP fields, we wanted to build our own SaaS offerings. Based on our experiences, OutagesIO was born. OutagesIO.com has challenged our skills and determination at every possible level. We have recently added IoGadgets.com which will undoubtedly stretch our imaginations even further.
We continuously develop and maintain our own software and hardware infrastructure which has taught us to understand the scope of related services that go into engineering and building software, including the importance of the considering the hardware requirements as part of the solution.

What does Internet downtime cost you?
Finds and tracks Internet outages and connection issues. For home or business.
For IT professionals, we offer OutagesIO
Outages, Independently Observed

Monitor one or thousands of Internet-connected locations. Know if problems are local, with the Internet provider a whole business park or up and down a certain street.
You’ll know before the calls start coming in. Cut down on tech support time and save money.
Working from home – Telecommute
Your team needs reliable Internet to keep them connected to their tools, clients, and coworkers. First, slow Internet and frequent outages zap the energy out of employees. Second, it can frustrate IT personnel trying to track Internet outage issues that seem to come and go. Finally, the time and and resources spent hunting for answers means wasted productivity for everyone. OutagesIO can show you if the issues are onsite, with the Internet provider, the VPN, or beyond.
Security systems monitoring
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. That’s why OutagesIO alerts your team quickly if remote locations stop communicating. Likewise, remote video cameras and monitoring stations need Internet that’s always on to keep businesses and homeowners safe. Don’t wait to be told the Internet is down again! Our automated Internet monitoring keeps your team informed with text and email notifications so you’ll never be caught off-guard.
Telehealth – Healthcare anywhere
When your patients are hours away from your medical office or need virtual doctor visits, you need reliable tools to care for them and track changes in their health. Keep your staff connected and your patients safe at home.
OutagesIO tracks your Internet’s health with an easy to read dashboard showing where issues are with your connection.
Utilities, unmanned equipment rooms
The clock starts ticking when a line is cut or an alarm is triggered in an underground vault. For example, what if the alarm is not received because of a slow or down IP/Internet connection?
OutagesIO reduces losses and complaints by letting you know when a connection goes down. Installs anywhere, only 2 inches square, no servers needed.
Internet of Gadgets
Smart devices without invasive apps
Every so often, OutagesIO members ask if we have remote controlled outlets or relays they could install at the same location they were monitoring the Internet service and provider. They wanted to remotely restart devices but spending hundreds and even thousands on proprietary hardware didn’t make sense.
We understood the problem as we too have to remotely control hardware on a regular basis. We started digging into alternatives that would be low cost and would accomplish the simple tasks that were needed.
We put a plan together, sourced out inexpensive hardware and started building our own firmware. This lead to building a full back end which provides members with simple controls to manage outlets where ever they have an agent installed using the same dashboard.
Out of this also emerged IoGadgets as a stand alone offering of smart home devices that do not require apps to be used.
Now we are looking at other kinds of hardware that we can support and start offering.
