Simple timer for Everyone

You can check IoT devices and applications with an easy operation.

Great Versatility

You can use Watchdog simply by calling the API from HTTP(S).

Calling the API is possible on various types of equipment, devices, and applications, such as server applications and smartphones, as well as IoT devices.

The timer works well for checking the normality of applications that require a long processing time or a periodic data exchange and for running monitoring services.


Settings are Easy

The timer can be operated using HTTP(S) with a general programming language. As long as your environment allows communication through HTTP(S), you can use an application and operate the timer from your smartphone or IoT device.

  • Notification by E-mail

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I monitor a device that sends data periodically?

Set the timer at the same time that the device sends data.

For example, when you are using a device that sends data every 60 seconds, set the timer time at 70 seconds and then extend it as soon as the device sends the data. If the device stops, a notification will be sent in 70 seconds as the timer time will not be extended.

How can I monitor an application that does not normally end within a specified time?

Set the timer as soon as the application starts. When the application ends, cancel the timer.

If the application does not end until a specified time, the timer will notify you of an abnormality. When you want to take an action in the case of an abnormality, use POST by HTTP(S).

Can I execute a command when an abnormality is detected?

When an abnormality is detected by Webhook, you can executePOST by HTTP(S).

Also, you can create end points to repair an application or call AWS Lambda.

Can I send an e-mail to multiple destinations?

Yes. It is possible to send an e-mail to multiple destinations and to do POST with Slack and HTTP(S) at the same time as sending e-mails.

What happens if I request a change in my plan in any given month?

When you change your plan from Trial to Standard, the month’s charge is calculated on a 30-day pro rata basis.
