That is built into Windows 7 for most UPS systems. I have a Cyberpower and an APC UPS and both were detected by Windows (USB). I also have an icon in the notification area (lower right) for the UPS and the amount of battery charge.

With the UPS connected, go to Personalize/Screen Saver/Change Power Settings. In the power plan will be options for the UPS.

Welcome
What is used by me and many of the senior members of the forum is the APC, UPS
Uninterruptable Power Supply. You will be satisfied.

It gives all the information that you mentioned, in addition it is a surge protector with back up battery, so you do not have an unexpected shutdown, which can lose your stuff and damage the computer.
Its hardware, but it is essential to have and to use.

I just use the software that came from APC,


APC gave me this one for free a few years back and the batteries are failing now.

Hi BoogieBoy,

I have an APC and a CyberPower UPS, I use the software that was included with the UPS.

They both have the features that you mentioned including logging, monitoring and controlled shutdown of the PC.

The CyberPower has the additional feature of having a desktop gadget that shows the current power consumption, power source (line or battery), battery state of charge and projected run time on the battery at the current power consumption.

Sorry i forgot to mention my UPS does'nt have any USB cable so i'll have to use the good old Comm Port Cable and my UPS is SVC 1200VA (about 750Watts) it has everything like Auto Voltage Regulator, Surge Protection and few more features which a good UPS shoud have but i bet none of you have ever even heard of this name before it's an Offline UPS but works good just had to replace the first batteries that came with it installed after 1 and half year than had bad experience with the one's i bought which were chinese made and they did'nt last 6 months so i bought new pair of Lead Acid which are made in Taiwan they seem to be better than the chinese ones i bought before but who know's are they actually better or not so i wanna use Software which will show everything in windows like Battery Status, Load on the UPS, Readings etc.

@ Zepher

i hope this APC software will work with my UPS too and the pic of the model im using is below i know that APC is the best company in the world for UPS but they are really really expensive in my country.. for example if 1 APC UPS costs $200 USD in USA so here same thing cost $600 USD that's 200% more price and there's no way we can get them by ordering online and get the delivery without paying the customs and everything which will cost same $600 after paying or even more!..
