Local? Where is that?

Thanks, that could be useful also to Gentoo users installing NUT with
different drivers.

beeper.off will only do something if the beeper has already started to
beep. It does not disable the beeper permanently, but only mutes it
until the alarm would normally stop sounding. Perhaps "beeper.mute"
would be a better name for this command, but we are keeping it for
backward compatibility. 

You might (perhaps) be able to disable the beeper permanently with 

 upsrw -s ups.beeper.status=1

but many UPS don't support this.
