  • Battery replacement notification

    Is it possible to have an event that triggers when the battery needs replacement?

    Thanks.

    The Status flag HS3 device will contain the text REPLACE_BATTERY in its device string when it is time to change the battery. To build a trigger, you can do this if for example you have the Easy Trigger plugin. It has a trigger that let's you check if a string contains some text. Below are two screenshots how to configure it.

    Besides using Easy Trigger, there might other ways to detect the text and trigger an event. I can see about adding a built-in trigger in the apcupsd plugin to trigger events based on flag changes in the status flag for in a future version.

    NOTE: This only works if you use apcupsd as the driver/source not if you use NUT as NUT does not send such status flags. I am also not sure if all apc usd set this flag.

        I uploaded a new BETA version that supports triggers when bits are set or reset in the HS3 UPS Status Flag. This only works for APCUPSD drivers/UPS as NUT does not send the Status Flags. Give it a try if you are still looking for this feature. Attached is a screenshot of an example.
