Hi Charles,
Thanks for your help.
Seems to be mostly ok except am getting error access denied. See below.
I see from searching this is a common error but so far I can't find a fix.
This is how I configured things before make and install.

created group nut
created system user ups with group nut.

Create statepath directory.

sudo mkdir -p /var/state/ups
sudo chmod 0770 /var/state/ups
sudo chown root:nut /var/state/ups

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-usb --with-user=ups --with-group=nut 
--with-udev-dir=/etc/udev --with-drivers=blazer_usb

Had to enable both these services. They weren't enabled by default.
sudo systemctl enable nut-server
sudo systemctl enable nut-monitor

$ sudo /usr/sbin/upsmon -DD
Network UPS Tools upsmon 2.7.4

upsmon.pid is in /run directory. upsmon is looking for it in /var/run.
/var/state/ups contains blazer_usb-defender, blazer_usb-defender.pid and 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
