If you want to trust your setup, you need to guard against a silent failure, 
particularly if you have carers and cleaners with access to the equipment. I 
suggest you run a heartbeat check for example using NUT as described at 
http://rogerprice.org/NUT/ConfigExamples.A5.pdf chapter 6, together with a daily 
cron job which checks that the heartbeat is running, and sends you an e-mail if 
all is well.
