SMTP Server or Monitoring software like What's Up Gold, but what do you use to monitor if site power outage?

Hello EE,  We use What's Up Gold and it is great in letting us know if something is down, but if a site where the WUG server is running loses power, the server won't be able to send notification, nor will the email server so is there an option others are using to send SMS if a site goes down where WUG can no longer notify so you aren't finding out when you walk in the office?

well without power, you still could not send an SMS correct.  So I would recommend a remote monitor to monitor the monitor, could be cloud based, a free solution, some even have a built in SMTP server as well.  Do you have everything in the same location, what about a UPS that can send power alerts?

No, I was leaning towards a remote monitor of the monitor as its only one wanted to see if others had any they would recommend

in that case you would have to decide what to monitor, maybe the IP of your router if it would lose power?  Your ISP may be able to alert that to you or you could use a few different websites, yo ucould use site24x7.com or something.
