Node-RED nodes to request status and events from an APC UPS Daemon NIS running on the network.

Screenshot

Prerequisites

An APC UPS Daemon has to run on a local or remote machine and has to be configured as network information server (NIS). For more information visit the apcupsd website.

Nodes

Server Configuration Node

Configure the APC UPS Daemon NIS settings to connect to. You can either use an ip address or hostname combined with the port of the server (default: 3551).

Request Node

This node allows you to send request to an APC UPS Daemon Network Information Server (apcupsd NIS). Currently it supports the following commands:

  • status
  • events
  • statusJson

Use one of the mentioned commands as payload of the input message. It will output a string with the result or in case of statusJson an Object containing the current status of the APC UPS.
