The Testomato service specializes in automated testing. It monitors your website and warns you whenever an automated test breaks; the company serves over a million tests on an average day. Through their integration with PagerDuty, a failed test can be used to trigger an incident within PagerDuty. PagerDuty can then alert the appropriate technician via SMS, phone, email or iOS/Android push.
