Assuming you have a relay-based "dumb" UPS that corresponds with your
machine via a serial connection, you should be able to configure powstatd
in just a few minutes. It is easily configured, and can be expected to
support most "dumb" UPS supplies.
UPS models known to work:
CyberPower PowerSL series
CyberPower Power2000 1500VA
CyberPower Power99 325VA, 400VA, 500VA and 720VA
Some older CyberPower 385VA and 450VA models
TrippLite Internet Office 500 UPS
Various older APC units.
Powstatd can also be configured to allow a master machine to control
(Via a network connection) up to 20 (by default) additional slave
machines connected to the same UPS. This allows you to run several
machines off the same UPS, with only one of the machines actually
reading the UPS status over the serial line.  This version of powstatd
uses secure cryptography to communicate between master and slave(s),
replacing the older powstatd-crypt Debian package.
