THIS WIKI HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR VERSION 13 OF YOUR PBX GUI
This feature is for the PRO version of System Admin.
On this page you can set your UPS information. A UPS (uninterruptible power supply) can be used to properly shut down the PBX in case of a power loss, and alert you of power issues by e-mail.
- On the top menu click Admin
- In the drop down click System Admin
- In the right side navigation box click UPS Server
The settings appear once you select Enable UPS: Yes.
Give the UPS a friendly name. This name will be used in email notifications.
Smart / Simple / Ethernet / USB: The type of communication cable that is connected to the UPS.
APCSmart / USB / Network / Dumb: The type of UPS.
Device, Port, or Network Address for your UPS type. Example: /dev/ttyS0
On Battery Delay Time
The time, in seconds, from when a power failure is detected until the system reacts to it with an "on battery" event.
Battery Minimum Level
If during a power failure, the remaining battery percentage (as reported by the UPS) is below or equal to the Battery Minimum Level set here, the system will initiate a shutdown.
Minimum Runtime Remaining
If during a power failure, the remaining runtime in minutes (as calculated internally by the UPS) is below or equal to Minimum Runtime Remaining set here, the system will initiate a shutdown.
If during a power failure, the UPS has run on batteries for longer than this setting, the system will initiate a shutdown. A value of 0 disables this timer.
UPS event notifications will be sent to this e-mail address. Note that what you set here is automatically populated in the Notification Settings section of System Admin, and vice versa.
When the information is set properly, click the Submit button.
