    I have a APC batter backup attached to my 2015 iMac. I am looking for software to monitor the UPS unit. I used to use Apcupsd but it does not work under el captain.

    Just a note of warning....
    A UPS connected via USB to a machine running El Capitan will more than likely have issues with Time machine backups.
    Proven issue that Apple has yet to do anything about.

    This is fixed in 10.11.2.

    Beg to differ......
    Running a CyberPower Pure Sinewave UPS and El Capitan it does not do automatic Time Machine backups when plugged into the iMac via USB. When disconnected all works perfect.
    I had a open ticket with Apple on this El Capitan issue and I also sent them diagnostic information......the ticket is still open and unresolved.

    I have my APC Back-UPS XS1300 plugged in USB to my iMac and my Time Machine is running fine doing automatic backups for me. I'm just using OS X's

    All of my UPSes are APC, and they allow automatic backups without a problem in 10.11.2, while automatic backups didn't work in 10.11.1.
