Use a third-party APC UPS management tool for more control
Authored by: kyngchaos on Mar 18, '10 09:27:44AM

Hm, I've been dreading the battery and power failure beeps with my new APC UPSs. But I don't think the consumer models, I have BackUps LS and CS, have the option to control the alert sounds. Previous models I had were BackUps Pros, and I used the Windoze Powerchute in virtualization to turn off the sounds. I did not see any alert sound options for the CS and LS.

A warning about the installer (I like to poke inside strange new installers, especially from open source): it installs things in system locations, /sbin, /etc & /usr/share, when they should be installed in /usr/local/*. Stuff in system locations has the potential to be removed by Apple updaters, and it's good to have 3rd-party software outside the system, especially for ease of uninstalling.
