We've got a lot of UPSs across our enterprise at several locations. We continuously get bit by finding out about aging batteries when the device fails and power is cut to the equipment on the UPS. This happens even if there is no power outage simply because the battery needs to be replaced.

Is anyone using KBOX to monitor their UPS devices, or at the very least, tracking them in their Asset management so that you can setup a replacement schedule? It would be handy if we coudl run a report showing the status of the UPS devices, or at the very least, those that are a few months away from their standard battery replacement date.

Thank you!

We're using the asset management portion of the kbox to monitor and generate reports on UPS and other non agent devices.

I reckon if the data is queryable from a command line you could write a custom inventory rule to collect the data into the K1. It's the command line bit we wouldn't know unless there's a common brand and model?
