   You can also check out http://www.apcupsd.org/. It is a popular s/w and
works with other UPSes too, in addition to APC. It fires events which you
have to interpret as you want, in your scripts.
Of course, for any UPS monitoring s/w to work, the UPS should support a
connection to the PC via a serial or USB port.
