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.
