New Alert Contact Type – Pushbullet (Push For Android, iOS, Chrome & Firefox)

PushbulletToday, we are very happy to announce the integration of Pushbullet as a new “alert contact type”.

Pushbullet is an impressive and free service/app that enables users to receive notifications (and also share files) in:

With this integration, it is now possible to get the alerts on all these platforms in real-time. And totally free.

How to use Pushbullet with Uptime Robot?

  1. Create a free account at Pushbullet
  2. Install Pushbullet to device and/or browser you prefer
  3. Copy the Pushbullet API Key from Pushbullet website’s “Account Settings” page
  4. Login to Uptime Robot and go to “My Settings” page
  5. Click “Add Alert Contact” and choose Pushbullet
  6. Enter a “Friendly Name” and the “Pushbullet API Key” and create the alert contact.
  7. Attach this new alert contact to the monitors you prefer from the “edit monitor” dialog of each monitor.

That easy.

    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.

      1. John

        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.

          1. Paul

            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?

    1. Martin

      Ok, after resetting the API key, it works!

    It’s not compatible with android 2.3.5 sniffff

    SuperB…..this is what I am waiting for..

    Aren’t you supposed to use OAuth instead of the API key directly?

    1. admin Post author

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

    It is really incredible to have all this features in a completely free service! Thank you very much Uptimerobot!
