Plug the PC into a stable power source, let the same PC monitor the UPS.
Unplug the UPS and place a load on it, watch what it instructs the PC to
do :)

Check your halt scripts for a command to drop the power in the UPS
*after* your root remounts ro and hopefully your ups supports this and your
bios powers up after power returns so when the outage is over, everything
returns to normal.

I would be as well:) Apcupsd and NUT are both stable, popular and well
documented projects. I am not sure about the one you are using...
