Looking to get my first UPS, could use some help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking for something to power my FreeNas is the event of a power outage and shut it down. Its a low power building that is running around 55-100 watts ( includes cpu and drives ) depending on the load.

Questions:
-What kind of specs are needed on a UPS?
-Are all UPS's the same in regards to being able to send a shutdown command?
-Anything else I should know before buying a UPS?

Depends how long you want it to run regarding specs but most will last 10-15min
No not all UPS's can send shutdown command and a majoity of the cheap ones connect to the PC/server via USB to send the command
they are heavy so bare this in mind it should probably be on the floor directly not on a shelf
