Yes. I found this information for SMX/SMT UPS types:

Can I use the USB and SERIAL ports simultaneously to shut down two attached servers?

Yes. "last save wins".

To clarify, we typically don't recommend this but it can be done with SMX/SMT. Other Smart UPS types (such as SU, SUA, SUM, etc) do not support this and we will not support doing it either if it appears to work for some time.

Thank you. It also seems to be working correctly as PC2 (in this case a NAS) seems to have detected it and is working with it.
