Managing UPS Devices

Note: This topic applies to the Hearst Release.

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) device(s) physically connected to the Smoothwall provide emergency power if the mains power supply fails.

The Smoothwall also makes information about UPS devices available on the System > Central management > Overview page. For more information, see Monitoring Node Status.

It is also possible to configure an alert which is triggered when power switches to and from mains supply. For more information, see Enabling Instantaneous Alerts.
