    I would talk to Buffalo to see what they say. As such firmware/embedded OS is proprietary it's unlikely that the manufacturers will publish the necessary APIs to allow third party software to communicate with it, but if you never ask you'll never know...

    I found recommendations for APC on Buffalo's forums:

    UPS Synchronization (Requires USB port)

    •USB connected UPS can transmit safe shutdown
    •Other LinkStation connected to UPS
    ¿Used to share one UPS for multiple Buffalo NAS devices
