Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

FYI: test fails but doesn't notify

Hi all,

Prior to upgrading to 3.6.1 the other day, I had a server go down and did not get a notification. I actually check three separate services on that machine and none of the three notified me. All three were displaying the spinning "check now" wheel and the bar graph showed them all maxed out. I have several notifications on each - sound, email, and txt to my phone. Nothing. The triangle was still in the upward pointing, grey mode.

The problem continued after I upgraded.

After recreating all the notifications it began to work correctly again.

I have not re-tested all my monitors, but I recreated notifications on the critical ones just in case.

Thought you might like to know. I have no idea how long this has been going on. It may have been a side effect of a recent OS 10.7.5 security patch or something.
