PowerAlert Local software is intended for typical home and small business applications. It is installed on a desktop PC or networked server, and allows the computer to communicate with a UPS system through a serial or USB cable connection. You can use it to monitor power conditions, control your UPS system and enable automatic computer shutdown in the event of a power failure.
PowerAlert Network Shutdown Agent provides automatic shutdown for a computer that is receiving battery backup protection from a Tripp Lite UPS system, but is unable to connect directly to the UPS system via USB or serial cabling. PowerAlert Network Shutdown Agent is able to "listen" to an SNMP-capable device on the local network that is directly connected to the UPS system, allowing you to configure your computer to shut down when specific power events are detected.
PowerAlert Network Management System is for advanced users only. PowerAlert Network Management System can monitor and control up to 250 SNMP-enabled devices, including UPS systems with a WEBCARDLX or an SNMPWEBCARD**, UPS systems that appear on the network via PowerAlert Local (or previous versions of PowerAlert**) and network-enabled PDUs.**
