New Feature: The “TV Mode”

If you are a business or freelancer with lots of monitors where getting the up/down notifications is not enough and want to keep an eye on the snapshot of the statuses of all monitors regularly, here is a new feature:

TV Mode

It is simply a focused view of the dashboard where only:

  • the number of the up-down monitors
  • and a list of “Latest Events”

are the most important.

The TV Mode refreshes each minute so that it always displays the up-to-date information.

It is a perfect fit to be displayed on a separate display where the teammates can also view it easily.

TV Mode

The feature can be reached from the “TV Mode link” at the right-top side of the dashboard (and, if pressed on a “monitor detail page”, it’ll keep the focus on that monitor).

P.S> Soon, we’ll be adding an option to reach the TV Mode with a unique link that doesn’t require user-pass (where login is sometimes an issue on display-only devices).

P.S2> The TV Mode is actually available since few weeks, yet, we hadn’t introduced it and hope that this blog post helps in case you had not seen it in the dashboard.

If you find Uptime Robot useful, help us spreading the word:

        Like YouTube application for smart TV do when you want to synchronize with the app on your smartphone.

        You open the application on TV, and displays a QR code, then the phone (already connected to the own smartphone app with your account) it identifies you and the TV automatically accesses your account without the need to enter e-mail / password manually.

        Another example is the web Whatsapp!

      :)) You are right.. Yet, it is almost no different than the dashboard.. minus the sidebar.. and auto-refresh.

    Just as an FYI, if you have Ad Block Plus loaded, these tabs are hidden… you’ll need to whitelist uptime robot.

    Would love to have it more customization, for example, to hide the blog link, add a logo, etc… reason being we have TVs where we display our monitoring alerts to the public in our office. Makes for a great impression. We’d like to include Uptime Robot in our public rotation too!

    Would rather have a list of uptime charts from the left in the position of the news roll… what is the point of the news on a tv feed?

      We are about to release a “public status pages” feature which will be covering exactly this need.

    If the direct link can be customizable without any authentication it would be great.
