Thank you. For sure it was my running across an old article that set me on the wrong path. Once I followed the advice from you and others on this awesome list, the integration itself found the nut-servers on my network, and the associated UPS devices themselves. Thank you for helping me learn and doing it in a way that didn’t make me feel like a fool. 
In short, the add-on was not needed at all.  It was the wrong path to start down. 

The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.
