I've just set up a CyberPower VP1000EILCD Value PRO 1000va/550w Tower LCD UPS to power my Synology Diskstation and it works even better than I expected (even the encrypted shares come back online when the mains power is restored) and I can control how the UPS handles a power failure from within the Diskstation GUI. So now, I have ordered a second UPS to power my ASUS RT-AX88U and DrayTek Vigor modem, both of which are located on the landing at the top of the stairs. The second UPS will be located in the roof space, because that is where all the cables to my router & modem are fed from. My question therefore is, would I be able to monitor/control any of the UPS's features if I were to connect the supplied USB cable from the UPS unit to the router or is that only useful for connecting NAS devices?
