ProsMonitor Scout is an ambitious uptime monitor that can monitor many aspects of web hosting

ConsThe user interface is really hard to use. It takes a while to get used to.

Bottom LineDon't count on moving to Monitor Scout yet. Most of their software is still in beta. They are not quite ready to be used professionally.
