> Usually, if you are willing to interface the UPS with your Computer, like it should automatically shutdown the computer when there's a power failure, then you may want to buy one with USB support. But I am not sure that you can interface it with FreeBSD. It can be done with Linux and Windows. :)
Check out the port sysutils/apcupsd
According to the documentation on the project's website
http://www.apcupsd.com, it works with both USB and with a serial
I've seen other people on this list reporting that it works with both
of those solutions.
For a network solution, you can also check the sysutils/nut port which
also has a USB driver. More info on the project's website at
