I'm trying to execute some commands on my ups, but I keep getting ERR

upscmd -l sinus
Instant commands supported on UPS [sinus]:

beeper.toggle - Toggle the UPS beeper
load.off - Turn off the load immediately
load.on - Turn on the load immediately
shutdown.return - Turn off the load and return when power is back
shutdown.stayoff - Turn off the load and remain off
shutdown.stop - Stop a shutdown in progress
test.battery.start - Start a battery test
test.battery.start.deep - Start a deep battery test
test.battery.start.quick - Start a quick battery test
test.battery.stop - Stop the battery test

An example:

upscmd sinus test.battery.start.quick
Username (root): gardar
Unexpected response from upsd: ERR ACCESS-DENIED

I have defined the user in the /etc/ups/upsd.users

 74 [gardar]
 75         password = hidden
 76         allowfrom = local
 77         actions = SET
 78         instcmds = ALL
 79 [local_mon]
 80         password = hidden
 81         allowfrom = localhost
 82         upsmon master

Device and driver info:

device.mfr: Inform
device.model: SINUS1KURM
device.type: ups
driver.name: blazer_ser
driver.version: 2.6.0
driver.version.internal: 1.51

What am I doing wrong?
