If it comes with a management cable and software, install the software and look at the activity log to see if there is anything there which caused the beeping.

I have known APC UPS beep in the way you mention when the battery needs replacement.

Go with moorhouselondon  on this.  This is an early sign that your UPS battery is failing, there may already be a risk that the charge it is holding will not last as long as it should.

Shouldn't the lights on the front indicate something?  There is a battery light on it.

Check the manual, could be that it is going through a daily self test.  Although I though the self test was once a week by default on most APC's UPSs,

You should be able to configure how often it goes through the test with the managment software.

The lights on the front should indicate something, yes, but remember that the UPS is itself a "participant observer".  Not all conditions can be correctly diagnosed by the lights on the panel.  As I say, I had a client that had this problem with sporadic beeping for some while.  The problem was resolved by fitting a new battery.

Try speaking to APC tech support - I have found them to be helpful.

I have 3 of these things and have the side by side and I have never heard one of them beep.  I have some smaller ones all around the building and when they start beeping they don't stop untill the battery is replaced.  I am just going to buy another battery and if that does not work I am just going to replace it.  Thanks for everyone's help!
