unforunately, there is no way to monitor/controll both UPSs with one software instance/installation. you will need two separate machines.

the only thing that is possible, with a Smart UPS or anything larger, is the graceful shutdown of more than one computer attached to the UPS. Back UPS does not have this ability. These are meant to be smaller UPSs designed for the home user who usually only has one computer.
