By default the device performs a self test every 14 days unless you have configured it otherwise. You can use the Test button on the front by pressing and holding it for a few seconds to intiate a manual self test. If either the automatic or manual self tests fail the Replace Battery LED will come on and the UPS will beep at you for a minute at a time every so often.

If you prefer a software solution then yes Power Chute would be the way to go. It will also provide you with some customization options as well as more in depth monitoring.
