SMART-UPS 1500 E-mail configuration

This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/8/2016


Hello

I'm just wondering on how to configure e-mail notifications for some events.

Here is my issue.

http://i.imgur.com/Cf3HGsa.png

What is here considered SMTP server?

For example If I want to use gmail SMTP server would be smtp-relay.gmail.com ?

And in E-mail authentication I'd put e-mail account info?

Thanks for replying

EDIT: Tried it out but no event e-mails have been sent. UPS is connected to server via USB.

Do I need to connect UPS to Ethernet ( Noticed there is something like Ethernet)

You need PC with PowerChute running. PowerChute is the application the sends the e-mail. If you purchase a Smart-UPS that accepts a network management card you can configure the card to send an e-mail so it is not necessary for the PC or PowerChute to be running.

Hi,

To configure PowerChute Business Edition E-mail with Gmail you need to run PowerChute version 9.2. With version 9.2 I have used these settings. 

  • SMTP server name: smtp.gmail.com
  • SMTP port: 465
  • SMTP SSL/TLS: TLS
  • Authentication user name: your Gmail address
  • Authentication  password: your password

PowerChute version 9.2 is compatible with these Smart-UPS SMC, SMT, SMX, SURTD, SRT

See Kbase FA249593 for more information or read the PowerChute Help file.
