I didn't because my focus was on solving the package conflict problem
(if possible).

I guess that should work. Currently there is only one computer (Debian)
and the NAS running all the time. Other computers are more like
'run-on-demand'. That environment is part of my homelab. So it's an idea
but not my favorite.

As I wrote, that's a possibility, but requires an expensive network
management card for the UPS (to my knowledge).
