    UPS for my NAS?

    OK, as a follow up to my last thread ("locked out of my NAS due to a power outage"), I decide to look into a UPS for my NAS. Well, what a surprise - anything under $100 will last from 1 to 10 min, depending on load! What are people using UPS for with their NAS - just for momentary power...

    UPS Monitoring Software

    I have a Mecer ME-650-VU UPS which I use to protect my Synology NAS. I have connected the UPS to the NAS with a USB cable and configured the NAS to shutdown gracefully 1 minute after the AC power has cut off, and then switch off the UPS. I have done a test by switching off the AC power supply...

    UPS Safe Mode and shutting down of Permitted DiskStation Devices

    I have my Synology plugged into a UPS with USB. I have the Synology setup so that it will shutdown my server before it enters into safe mode using the built in network server. This all works. It works if I set a time, it works if I let it wait till low battery. The problem is when the Synology...

    Synology Network UPS Server - Client Shutdown Script?

    Begrudgingly bought yet-another replacement UPS; slowly working my way through the major UPS brands... Anyway, is there a way to send a shutdown command from the Synology UPS Server to a non-Synology client via a task, script or another method? Ideally I would like a graceful shutdown of a...

    DS920+ and UPS strange behavior.

    New user. What a great resource. I just set up a DS920+ and when I plug in the UPS it immediately goes into battery mode and starts beeping. When I unplug the usb cable the nas front panel shifts to the red low battery indicator with a steady tone. I turned off the NAS and turned off the ups...

    Network UPS with many clients?

    I have my UPS plugged into my syno, and I have a slew of raspberrypi's powered by the same UPS which I would also like to gracefully shutdown when necessary. The syno has the handy network UPS server which is awesome, but it seems I have to authorize each client IP individually ("Permitted...

    Info APC UPS; Heads Up re RJ45/USB Cables Availablity

    If anyone is planning on buying an APC UPS in the near future, of the type which requires an RJ45/USB cable to auto-shutdown your Synology NAS, you might want to be aware of the following: 1.

    Question UPS: When to enter Safe Mode?

    With three smallish APC UPS I decided to re-configure what's connected to each one. The two DSM NAS are to the same UPS so that one monitors and the other shares the status. Up to now I had kept the Safe Mode entry on 'Until low battery' thinking that is would be fairly low but able to withstand...

    Time to upgrade my UPS, hints?

    The battery has gone bad obviously on my APC ES 550G and it signals this by a high frequent noise that really makes me mad. Are there a better/other model that is compatible with Synology NAS that indicates this kinds of things a little bit better? I am in no need for an expert UPS, it if can...

    UPS for DS1819+

    These recent thunderstorms we've had in the UK got me thinking, I really should get a UPS. I know, I know this should have been done a long time ago. Thankfully, I cannot remember the last time we had a power outage, and I've been in the same house for over 35 years. One day that luck is going...

    Question Passing ups via usb to docker container

    My Eaton UPS 5PX works with their own software (IPP) that they offer a linux .deb version for. Yes I can use NUT, but there are a few variables like battery voltage, that for some reason are not exposed with NUT. So I've tried to run their IPP in a docker container (there are a few version...

    My UPS has begin to act strange during powerloss.
