I use nagios (another OSS product) on another linux system (which could
be a VPS or at your house) to check up on NUT installations of that
nature, and warn me if they stop responding. I also have NUT run a
script to send me an SMS message to notify me of power failures (and
restoration). You generally need to sign up with a service (email me
privately if you want to know which service I use) to send SMS messages
via a web api. The going rate is about USD $.01 per SMS.
If the rPi is too fragile, consider getting a small Intel desktop (which
are not much more used than an rPi is new). The desktop uses more
power, but still tiny compared to air conditioning.
