Can A UPS Be Added To A Power Conditioner?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/21/2014

I have a business audio\visual\teleconference system using an APC H15 power conditioner for powe protection.  I want to add a battery backup and am thinking about adding a seperate stand alone UPS to my system.  I know that I need to have a UPS with a clean sine wave and am looking at an APC Smart UPS with a 1.5kw rating.  I have also seen concerns with having a surge protector connected to the output of a UPS but am not sure if my current power conditioner would be a problem.  I'd like to replace the current conditioner with a new unit with built in battery but the cost would be higher.
