Plenty of ways to receive our alerts.

If you want to.

Customizable alerting

You can tweak your notifications just the way you like. Enable or disable checks, add new recipients, you name it.


By default, problems we find on your websites are alerted via email. They're simple, to-the-point and will give you a list of actual things to check.

Slack notifications

Add your Slack Webhook in your settings page and we'll send real-time push notifications to your Slack channel of choice to inform you of any issue.

HipChat integration

Just like Slack, you can get all your alerts directly in HipChat. Get real time insights in the performance & availability of your websites.

Discord notifications

Discord users will be happy to know that they can just add a Discord Webhook and get notifications in their favourite chat app.


With our webhooks, you can link Oh Dear! with any other service. All data is securely encapsulated in a POST call to an endpoint you control. And we've got extensive documentation to help get you started.

Pushover support

Notifications in iPhone, Android & Windows Mobile via Pushover. Want them on your desktop as alerts instead? That's covered too.


Want notifications via SMS? No problem! We provide that via Nexmo. You should bring your own account.

And many more

We've got a lot of extra notifications ideas queued up. Have something special in mind? Let us know, let's talk about it!

There are plenty more features to convince you why Oh Dear! should monitor your sites.
