I just bought an UPS
I'll use it to - obviously - shutdown the HE hub and other devices if power outage is detected.
It has an USB port for communication that I can connect, e.g., to a Raspberry Pi and run programs like Network UPS Tools and, from there, make it available to HE using TPC/IP and, finally, develop a driver to handle the communication with the UPS.
However, I'd like to know if it is possible to connect an USB device directly to HE that it is not a radio device. With this direct connection it would, of course, suppress the "man in the middle" (RPi) and other software layers.
I did some digging and I could not find anything about it.
Is it possible?
UPDATE: the Amazon UPS that I have is an OEM from this:
This is an old CyperPower model, but, who cares if it is an old model? If it works as expected, I'm happy! And for the price, I'm more than happy!
