Most UPS's use a serial cable to the PC to tell the PC whats going on,
all thats needed software wise is the package upsd or apcupsd (if UPS
from APC).

If you have more than 1 PC connected to the UPS, the software can
shutdown other PC's as well even though it's not directly connected to
the UPS via serial cable.
