Apcupsd 3.14.12

Monitor UPS and perform a graceful computer shutdown
Apcupsd (APC UPS Daemon) is an open source app for monitoring UPSes and performing a graceful computer shutdown in the event of a power failure.

Apcupsd can be used for power mangement and controlling most of APC's UPS models on Unix and Windows machines.

Apcupsd works with most of APC's Smart-UPS models as well as most simple signalling models such a Back-UPS, and BackUPS-Office. During a power failure, apcupsd will inform the users about the power failure and that a shutdown may occur.

If power is not restored, a system shutdown will follow when the battery is exhausted, a timeout (seconds) expires, or runtime expires based on internal APC calculations determined by power consumption rates.

Apcupsd is a cross-platform application that runs on Mac OS X, Linux, Tru64, Win32, Solaris as well as other OSes.
