That's what I've been trying to do too.  The Best ME series have a nice
command-line interface that I use now, but I've not yet figured out what
to do with the APC SmartUPS models I've got....

It looks like it wouldn't be that hard to add hooks to ups-nut to have
it use a simple telnet library instead of opening a serial port, but
I've not gone any further than just reading a bit of code so far....
