Is the transmitter still working?

Has the animal I am tracking entered a wintering zone? returned to its nest? crossed a border?
GEO ArgosMonitor sends you an alarm message when a platform enters or leaves a customized zone.
SENSOR Argos Monitor
Is the animal still alive (are heart rate, temperature measurements normal)? Is the battery low?

ArgosMonitor "Watchdog" Services : Added security for high-value ocean buoys
Has my equipment surfaced inadvertently?
This service is designed for underwater moorings, (i.e., platforms that only use Argos in case of an emergency ). It sends an alert (and if possible, a location) if at least two messages have been received via the Argos system.
Is my moored buoy floating away?
Designed for Moored Buoys, this service will alert you if a moored buoy leaves its mooring zone. It also provides you with locations so you can quickly recover your Moored Buoy.
