  4. Login to Uptime Robot and go to “My Settings” page
  5. Click “Add Alert Contact” and choose Pushbullet

Wow, great!
Finally, I am waiting to get some kind of notification on my Android and this is exactly what I need!

We actually would love to add Pushover support. However, Pushover has limits in API usage which prevents us from adding it. Sorry for that.

I also prefer Pushover and I use it for everything. It is super reliable and the API is good. What limitation are you running into?

FYI – UptimeRobot, PushOver, LastPass, SetCronJob and Authy are my top recommended sites/apps/tools for my IT co-workers.

There is a request limit in Pushover API where further usage is priced. Otherwise, it looks great.

That’s unfortunate as I also use Pushover in preference to Pushbullet, it’s much more configurable. However Pushbullet comes a close second!

Recommend support for as many endpoints as possible. NMA is no exception! Thanks for a great service!

i copied the API key (Pushbullet > Account Settings > Access Token), but i don’t get a push notificiation in the browser or on my smartphone.
Can you help me?

Once we had integrated PushBullet, the OAuth support hadn’t existed. We’ll be switching to it in the next days.
