Get mail/sms alert when ups on (raspberry pi?)?

Hi,

I wonder if there are solutions to monitor my ups (basic apc 350). I d like to get an email or sms whenever ups is activated/used and when its not used anymore.

Are there budget solutions for it or simple ways to configure via raspberry pi?

Pls advise.
J.

What software came with your UPS?

As far as I recall, these devices come with software called PowerChute that can send email alerts.

You might find this article helpful if you don't have the software or are configuring email alerting from a Linux server:

Sorry, I misunderstood.  I'm afraid that this is beyond my scope of knowledge.

You didnt make any comments??
from my link
Conclusion
Now that you can send a SMS message from your Raspberry Pi you can setup shell scripts to check on system health and if something is not right the you can get a text message alerting you of the issue.

I have this and other guides on my site http://citycorpse.com
