APCUPSd Binary Sensor

In addition to the APCUPSd Sensor devices, you may also create a device which is simply “on” when the UPS status is online and “off” at all other times.

To enable this sensor, you first have to set up apcupsd, and add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: apcupsd
