I take it that by "it" you mean apcupsd.

You didn't tell us that earlier. That changes things.

Well, it may not be possible to install both packages at the same
time *on the same computer*, but that doesn't mean you can't run them
both on the same network.

Try setting up one machine to run NUT and its apcupsd-ups driver, and
have the NAS box pay attention to that machine. Then set up another
machine with apcupsd to ride herd on the UPS, and have it treat the
first one as a networked client.

Or just run NUT on everything.

Does anybody read signatures any more?
