Frontend Robot can be very useful also as a monitoring system. You can choose to run a test suite at specific intervals to verify that your application is running as it should.

The usual pattern is to monitor a production system using a test suite with a few meaningful tests. While running larger suites on a staging/test environment after each new deploy by integrating smart triggers within your build system.
