Do I need to install PowerChute for Mac to setup and monitor my APC UPS?
We recommend using the native Mac software (Energy Saver) to monitor and control the UPS. When you attach USB cable to your Mac, the Mac will auto recognize the UPS and will provide settings in the energy saver pane.
* Tip – If you’ve attached your USB cable but the Mac didn’t recognize the device, try switching USB cables, you’d be amazed at how many times we’ve seen bad USB cables cause all sorts of headaches. If that doesn’t work, try and switch USB ports.
