    Use NUT. It’s what is behind the ups support on synolgys and should let you shutdown your pc over the network. It is a process though that can be super annoying

    Yes, you can run apcupsd or NUT. While I don't have personal experience with NUT, I think apcupsd is a little more straightforward to use.

    Connect your ups to any computer using usb. Get nut. Install server on it. Install client on any other computer you want to power down gracefully when appropriate.

    NUT ( is the default UPS management software in TrueNAS. It is quite versatile but you want to make sure you get a compatible UPS. I've had good luck with CyberPower UPSes. Stay away from APC because of compatibility.

  • Jumping back into crypto after a 4y hiatus and catching up on all the LN developments, pleasantly surprised by the progress and growing community, looking forward to participating!
    For reference, the NUT package in *NIX environments typically handle communication with the UPS: They have a list of known supported models, but often there is a compatible driver for a comparable model. Depending on your router software (OPNSense, pfSense, DD-WRT, etc), you might be able to plug that into the UPS and have your Raspi communicate with the router about the UPS.

    The two free solutions are apcupsd and NUT. Either one will enable you monitor the UPS and send a signal to other machines when power fails. apcupsd is easier to deal with.

    I could try to look into it, it's just that ATM it's using NUT ( on a linux server, maybe their in-house dedicated software on windows might have more capabilities.

    Another option here is NUT if you need it, though I'm pretty sure apcupsd is good for it, at least for APC
