Dear list,

since some days I own an APC Back-UPS BX1400U.
Now I try to connect my Raspberry Pi to it using NUT, but ... ;)
The UPS is connected via an USB-cable, and "lsusb" shows an APC device.
NUT is installed via "sudo apt-get install nut".

My goal: a Synology DiskStation DS1515+ should "read" UPS-data provided 
from the Raspberry an shut-down itselt at 30% battery capacity.
The raspberry should shut-down at 20 %.

Is that UPS not supported?
Or does I have to use other settings?

If you need any additional information, please let me know and I'll (tyr 
to) provide it!
