So if I understand correctly, you are using the USB interface with NUT (the usbhid-ups driver), and not the SNMP interface?

(This is the first time I have heard about the Envirosense Probe, so this isn't exactly well-charted territory for us.)

It may be possible to try the 'explore' option (with -DD) to usbhid-ups, as described at the end of this section: http://www.networkupstools.org/docs/man/usbhid-ups.html#_extra_arguments

This might list some of the values returned by the probe.

If not, they might be visible in the output of snmpwalk. I'm not sure the best options to use there, but Arnaud might have suggestions.
