How to setup UPS with Cisco 1941 Router to do soft shutdown?

Hello,

I have a Cisco 1941 router attached to a simple UPS.  It works fine if the power only goes out for a little while, but when the power goes out for hours, the UPS fails and my router goes down "hard".  

Is there a way to make a UPS communicate with my Cisco 1941 router and turn it off in the event of a long power outage?  I'm willing to buy UPS hardware if necessary.

Thanks,
Jason
