I hate alarms... love APS

This was originally posted on APC forums on 1/11/2012


My area has short power outages known as brown outs. They almost always last no more than 10 minutes. They almost always also happen in the middle of the night.

What would be the correct system to purchase given that:

1) I don't need to wake up in the middle of the night to turn off my computer (ie. I hate alarms)
2) I need at minimum 10 minutes of uninterrupted power for my computer... beyond that -I DON'T CARE.

Does anyone have a suggestion for an APS system?

I do not know about other's but I recently purchased two BX1000G's and two BX1300G's (not all four at once) and you can disable the alarms.

I am unsure if it will start to alarm when the battery reaches exhaustion. It will alarm if over loaded no matter how it is set but when switching to battery, they do not initiate an audible alarm (if set properly).

In the original post -I meant APC not APS... there has got to be some product that does this.
