Prevent Downtime With PowerPanel® Monitoring Software

by Katy Plant on December 14, 2022

UPS systems protect valuable equipment, so it is critical for them to function optimally. To be sure that your UPS system is reliably protected, it is recommended that you monitor and manage your facility's power regularly. CyberPower helps customers achieve this via their PowerPanel® software, accessible locally or remotely. Continue reading to learn how checking in on your power protection equipment ensures that your battery backup indeed always has your back.

The benefits of power monitoring include, but are not limited to:

  • Power loss prevention

  • Equipment and data protection via safe shutdowns

  • Reliable battery usage

  • Efficiency improvement

  • Cost reduction

Local Monitoring
Compatible CyberPower UPS models can be directly connected to your computer or workstation to monitor power, check the status of your UPS, manage shutdowns and reboots, and set notifications for power events.
For example, if you will be traveling over the weekend, you can schedule your computer to shutdown once you have left, and then reboot upon your return.

Remote Monitoring
Power can also be monitored remotely. By using a remote management card, or a cloud card, multiple UPS systems can be monitored at once from a central workstation. A remote management setup is ideal for organizations with multiple locations across a state, country, or even the world.

Power management software provides easy-to-use controls to make set-up simple. Power status/alerts can be viewed from any web browser. Remote monitoring allows you to troubleshoot power issues and schedule power maintenance from anywhere. For example, an IT administrator located at their organization’s headquarters can be alerted of power issues at satellite offices.

Register Your New UPS

Last but not least, make sure to register your UPS system once you've purchased one. Registration certifies the warranty, confirms your ownership of the UPS system in the event of a product loss or theft, and provides access to free technical support. That way, you'll always have proof of the purchase and can follow the recommended maintenance schedule.

When you have a question about your UPS system’s operation or a new system is needed, CyberPower is your ultimate ally in power and provides solutions to all your power protection needs. Explore the additional tools and resources below to help you choose the right UPS for your home or business:
