[adding the list to the CC line]

It's entirely possible that your UPS uses slightly different commands
than the Belkin unit used to develop that driver.

This is the logic used to shut down in the belkin driver:


It does not look like there is any error checking (or even any return
code from the UPS that can be checked) so you may have to experiment.
Do the "load.on" and "load.off" instant commands work? That might be
necessary for your UPS.

There are a number of options for figuring out the correct protocol
using the manufacturer's drivers on a supported OS.
