You have pi's deployed on the customer premise running smoke ping ?
Great idea, have they been reliable ? I've only played with them - never production.  How do you handle managing a pi fleet ?

The software is free, as it's open-source, and it could be implemented on a $5/mo VPS at somewhere like DigitalOcean.
