    Hello...  recently my company just purchased Synology NAS, and I think this device is great for putting UPS to sleep in case of power failure because the NAS is the last device to turn off, and it also draws very little power compared to other computer.

    The problem is all of our Smart UPS are controlled by AP9619, and the Synology built in UPS function cannot turn off the UPS via UPS-SNMP mode.  Synology built in UPS function can turn off locally connected UPS (via USB port), but it is not viable in networked environment.

    Could APC make PowerChute Network Shutdown for Synology DSM? 

    I think Synology users are quite much coupled with the fact that APC is the most commonly used UPS brand, so I think that the effort to make PCNS for DSM won't be wasted.

    Latest DSM version is 5.2

    Thank you for your attention.

    Hi,

    I will send your request to the Product Manager. A network option you have now is to write a script PowerChute will run prior to OS shutdown that will command the Synology system down. Another option is to connect to the UPS via USB and use the built in shutdown option. You can have the Synology system connected to the UPS via USB while the other systems are communicating over the network.

    Hi, 

    Could you please advise if i can use Synology 916+ with APC BR1500 (BZ1500PBI-BR) model, via USB to shutdown? it will work with this model?

    You could try installing APCUPSd on your Synology NAS:
