tip of the iceberg

So far a great experience. In the beginning some pages made the google chrome tab freeze, I reported this bug and it was solved really quickly!

Pros

I bought Hexowatch purely for the visual monitoring. But it has so much more monitoring options that it has its value in almost any use-case. But the amount of checks/month for their current price point made it an absolute no brainer

Cons

It's still in a early stage so I wasn't to happy to manually add each monitor but, it's currently on the roadmap to make that easier.

Reasons for Choosing Hexowatch

user to setup and use, better pricing for the features I need.

Reasons for Switching to Hexowatch

Flexible monitoring tool that saves you a ton of time

Hexowatch is one of those tools where once you begin using it, you can't imagine life without it. In particular, it saves me a lot of time and increases accuracy when it comes to visually comparing WordPress web pages after applying updates.

Pros

The feature most useful for my business is the visual monitor. It allows me to watch any number of web page for visual changes and then get notified when those changes exceed a certain percentage (called sensitivity). After a change occurs, you can use their slick before/after slider to see exactly what's different. There is also a highlighter graphic that superimposes the before/after states to give you an alternative way of seeing what's changed. It's really quite clever and I've never seen anything on the market like it.

Cons

There are a few UI/UX improvements I would like to see. For example, the Monitored URLs window doesn't show tags or allow for bulk edits. Since I spend most of my time here, I'd also like to see a better summary of each page monitor without having to click/expand each one. I do however feel it's only a matter of time before additional UI/UX improvements are made. The Hexowatch team is responsive and the software has already improved much since I first started using it.

One of the best website monitoring that actually works seamlessly

I basically monitor my competitors websites for a change on the blog pages etc. My best use case is to monitor our clients website if something has changed either visually or by keyword etc.

Pros

Adding a layer of action to capture changes of the website behind a login page is something awesome. Bulk monitoring pages, Domain Monitoring and really the list goes on. Another big thing abt them is amount of updates they release so regularly, hardly have seen any company doing that.

Cons

They were initial hiccups in terms of missing functionality like bulk monitoring, actions etc..but its covered now.

Reasons for Switching to Hexowatch

Wanted more advanced features and flexibility

Website monitoring

Overall, Hexowatch is alright. It's easy to setup monitoring, you'll just need the choose the type of monitoring you want and the URL of the page. As mentioned, AI monitoring obviously needs some enhancement.

Pros

Various available ways to monitor a website; whether it's your own website, client's, or competitors. For web agencies, these are useful. Types of monitoring includes; uptime, HTML, content, tech used, AI, and WhoIS info.

Cons

Their AI monitoring is still pretty un-useable after 2-3 months. Sending alerts although the site it monitors is fine. My guess is, it still can't work out sliders well.

Hexowatch is a life- and timesaver

We're monitoring tier prices, new tech stacks, availability and much more.

Pros

Hexowatch is really easy to use and it's possible to track almost anything. We have loads of shops and a lot to monitor, so Hexowatch is a welcome addition to our setup. We've previously used a similar monitoring tool which we found very limited, where as Hexowatch has great features and is very active in adding more features and listening to feedback.

Cons

I would like to schedule tests within different timeperiods, so it's not static like every 30 minutes or every day, but instead say: "Test every 30 minutes between 8am and 8pm". That's about it.

Reasons for Switching to Hexowatch

Hexowatch has more features.
