Yes, it is indispensible.

Even with running ssh on a non standard port, I still watch for ssh logins
to make sure that they are legit.

Logwatch emails me daily a summary that I scan.

Here is a snippet:

Users logging in through sshd:
   john:
      71.22.x.x.
(x.x.x.verizon.net<http://pool-71-106-99-104.lsanca.dsl-w.verizon.net/>):
1 time
   jane:
      71.83.x.x
(x.x.x.charter.com<http://71-83-81-130.static.rvsd.ca.charter.com/>):
2 times
