Yes, you should connect it to your UPS. Make sure you have enough wattage capacity on your UPS so you don't overload it.

If you have LED's on the front of your UPS, check to see if the load is maxed out. Depending on your UPS, you might not have those LED's. You can also install PowerChute software on your desktp to check the UPS and see how much load is on the UPS.

Hope this helps!

If it comes with the cable Serial or RJ45 to RJ11, you connect it to your Pc, install the Powerchute software and control the shutdown process. It will shut down your Pc if the batteries get low or power is out for an expended time period. I don't think they have any functionality to shut down the Buffalo unit from that software. You might want to call APC and see if they have an app for that.

Thinking about this further, you might want to call Buffalo and see if they have an app that can be triggered to shut down the Buffalo unit if the APC shutdown process starts running.
