Television and Cablebox/DVR

Don’t lose your DVR recordings when the power flickers. A connected cable/satellite box will continue recording, even when the house is dark.

Can you adjust the alarm settings or totally disable the alarm?

Yes, UPS’s that are connected to computers can have their sensitivity settings adjusted in the PowerChute software; also you can specify what hours you want to disable the alarm, if desired. The alarm ‘mode’ can be set via the power button.

Does BE600M1 have a replaceable battery?

When it’s time to refresh the battery, APC offers a User-replaceable battery for model BE600M1 under part # APCRBC154 (sold separately). Depending on usage, a UPS battery typically lasts for 3-5 years before needing to be replaced.

How do you turn off the alarm?

You can temporarily mute some alarms with a 1-2 second press of the Power button, which mutes an alarm until the condition that caused the alarm is reset. Critical events (i.e. Battery replacement) require unit to be turned off.

How long will this UPS power my system when the power goes out?

The runtime of any UPS will vary based on the amount of power required by your the devices plugged into the battery backup outlets. In the PowerChute Software, you can see ‘Estimated Battery Time’ based on the power-draw of your connected devices.

Can I plug a printer into a UPS?

Due to the large amount of power used by printers, APC does not recommend connecting them to a UPS below 1500VA. If printers are connected, it may cause the UPS to transfer to battery repeatedly, exhausting the battery unnecessarily.

    My home is an area of coastal South Carolina that recently experienced some damage from Hurricane Dorian. There were many damaged trees and multiple downed power lines that took out our service for several days. Now that our power outage as been restored, my local utility continues to have power “blinks” for a few seconds which not only wreak havoc with my clocks but especially with my Dish satellite receiver and attached hard drive. When the power goes out on my satellite equipment, even for a moment, it will no longer automatically record my selected programs until I reset the equipment. Arghh!!I bought this APC UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector to protect my satellite equipment from those blinks and to stop having to do those annoying receiver resets. This UPS arrived with the internal battery disconnected and instructions for how to open the battery compartment and connect the battery, which I did.Setup was simple. There were enough outlets for me to connect my satellite receiver, my Ethernet switch and my “smart” DVD player for battery backup, plus my video projector for surge protection. Paradoxically, within minutes of getting all of my equipment up and running again, I experienced another one of my utility power “blinks.” But since all of my equipment was protected by the UPS, it never missed a beat.I like being able to replace the internal batteries when they finally go bad. One of the features that I choose when buying APC UPS battery backup equipment is the ability to replace the battery. That way I can greatly extend its useful service instead of discarding an entire UPS. The BE600M1 has that feature.

    I have had this now for I think almost two months. I use it as a back up battery for a DVR and two 12-volt security cameras. It replaced a much more powerful Cyberpower 1500 AVR, which last five years so I have no complaints. The replacement batteries for that unit cost more than this new one. I got this unit because we were entering Florida’s bad storm season and, as it was, for months I was having brown outs in my house, sometimes twice a day. (Those also stopped because I started keeping logs and sent complaints to the power company) but anyway, when the brown outs, or sags, occurred, it would knock my DVR off and then system would shut down. It was getting to be a nuisance, and I spent a lot of time troubleshooting — was it my DVR going, my router etc. It turns out it was the sag, or abrupt power outage, that wreaks the most havoc with power equipment. So these sags starting up around January, 2020, increasing in frequency, was causing a lot of problems with my system, and causing stress to my equipment. I can’t emphasize enough, if you have important electronics, do yourself a favor and get some battery back ups, at least if the power abruptly goes out, it will give you a chance to turn everything off, things like the TV, the stereo, your security cameras — though for those you’d want a stronger back up to keep them running. We had a bad storm a year ago and my two Cyberpower back ups kept my six security cameras and DVR running for four hours. Anyway, this smaller, and much more affordable system has done a great job when we get hit with a slag. Putting complaints in writing to the power company also help, because those folks will get sloppy. I would recommend this if you have three or four low volt devices. It is easy to use, arrived on time, I spent 24 hours making sure it was all charged and it has done a great job! I cannot comment on the wi fi that was listed here, because I don’t believe a back up battery comes with wi fi — so I don’t know what that was about. The battery back up does have some other features, such as software so you can control it with your computer, but that is not needed for my purpose. This was a good-priced battery back up that I needed in a pinch, made by a good company. When I have the extra money, I will replace the other batteries for the stronger unit. You can never have enough battery back up if you live in an area with lightning storms.

    Have been buying APC uninterruptible power supply’s for many years 15 plus.Was worried about some of the reviews I have seen on Amazon about failed units and other such complaints.The unit I received works flawless just like all the other APC units I have owned.I haven’t needed any tech support on this latest unit ( as of yet ) but in the past when I have contacted APC by phone they have been more than willing to replace a unit that was under warranty. Plus shipped it to me for free and paid the shipping to return the one and only unit that has failed on me.Update 03/16/2020 started playing games and started hearing beeping sound first thought is was my PC system speaker turns out it the USP. If your system load is more than 330 watts it beeps at you even thought your not on battery and using wall power. Never had this problem out of my old same rated APC uninterruptible power supply.

    I purchased this 600VA, APC Back-UPS (BE600M1) to replace our aging APC 650ES model. It was having problems with the on/off button, so I decided to just replace it. This unit is only used for my wi-fi router and cable modem. They are the only things plugged into the battery backup ports to maintain internet when the power goes out in our house. This unit gives me over 2 hours of internet backup for my modem and wi-fi router. I have another APC battery backup for my desktop. I always use APC UPS and will continue to use them. They can be used in stand alone mode or you can download “Power Chute” software to change even more options. The one that runs my desktop is for my iMac. It is compatible with the “Energy Saver” software already on the Mac, so there is no need to download the Powerchute software. I have it set to soft shutdown my iMac when the battery power is less than 15% charge left. I would recommend this unit to anyone with a smaller computer, or to be used with modem/router for backup power.

    Internet is king, and most of us would have serious withdrawals should the internet go down for any extended time. So when I read the news that my town would be in the path of Hurricane Florence, I decided to buckle down and get something that could support our modem and router for an extended power outage. Prime shipping had this APC UPS battery backup delivered the next day and the system was very easy to assemble out of the box.Upon unpacking, you have to plug in the internal battery (disconnected to stay safe during shipping) which does briefly cause minor, but expected, sparking. The battery slides into place easily and the cover re-attaches with moderate effort. The battery is shipped mostly depleted, so do not expect this to power your devices for hours right out of the box. After about 24 hours of being plugged in, you should be good to go. We have a Google mesh Wi-Fi system, and this battery supports one of the wi-fi routers plus our Netgear CM700 modem.After owning this device for about 30 hours, we experienced our first power outage. The outage lasted for 3.5 hours and the UPS performed spectacularly. It immediately kicked in when the power went out and supported both the router and modem continuously during the outage. While this UPS comes with the ability to be monitored via a USB connection, I do not have that set up at this time so I don’t know how much juice was left in the UPS after the 3.5 hours. This is one of the small drawbacks for this UPS, as it doesn’t come with a built-in display to check load or battery levels. Once the power came back on, it switched back to the grid seamlessly. We had 4 more outages (lasting between 1 and 3 hours) over the next five days and the UPS had no problem powering our internet during that time.The device is heavy and certainly not designed to be proudly displayed on your mantle. The device prioritizes function over form, but I figure most users will be happy with this trade-off. It does not come with any advanced features, but provides great function at a lower price point ($57.15 at the time of this review, 9/18/2018).I will update this review if any problems arise with future use.

    There are many variations of APC UPS out there and I find this one is the best combination of price, outlets, capacities and design. I use it to power my home network (see photo) equipment, including UPS for the firewall and Fios Router, the WIFI router (orbi), a Samsung smartthing hub for home control, and a NAS for storing critical backups and data at home. The APC UPS is connected to my NAS via USB so that if we loose power, the NAS will do a clean shutdown to make sure there is no data lost. For short term power loss (we have experienced up to 5 mins) or brown outs, the equipment completely stay running.

    I have an internet modem, wifi router, security camera base station, and a media only computer plugged into this. When the power goes out it allows me to shut down the media computer gracefully, keeps my internet up and running, and keeps my wireless camera security system up and running as well. With my surface tablet running on it’s battery and the UPS keeping my internet up, I can stay connected so I can check on the status of the power outage on the electric companies website and to stay in touch with family during the power outage. Using the modem, router, and camera system on the UPS gets me about 2-4 hours of power. Usually plenty of time for the power to come back on. Only down side is depending on how big or the orientation of your plugs, you probably won’t be able to plug in 7 devices. I could only fit 4, but that was all I needed. Recommended.

    Bought this because my Tripp-Lite finally gave out after 4 years. Hook everything up and there is a “building wiring fault” burning on the back of unit. I have never had an issue with any other UPS’s in this plug. Contact support….they want me to get an electrician to check out my wiring…WHAT? Yeah right, I’m gonna hire an electrician to come over and check my wiring because their $58 piece of electronics says there’s a problem with the wiring…nope….not gonna happen. It’s going back and I’m getting another Tripp-Lite. This is a bunch of crap. Oh, and their tech people have to keep asking other people when you ask them a question…..Update: The seller reached out to me and replaced my unit with a step up. Sent me an rma for free shipment back to them. They bent over backwards to make me happy so changing my stars to 4. I would give it a 5 but the unit needs a readout on the front showing the status and battery strength like the Tripp-Lites have. Otherwise the unit is working great. Thanks for the great customer service!Update 7/10/17. This seller went over and beyond to make me happy. Sent a new upgraded unit which is working flawlessly. Thank you very much!

    For a long time I didn’t understand that any given Back-UPS unit is going to keep any given PC (and more) up and running if a power outage were to occur. When I finally came to understand that fact I settled on this particular Back-UPS model. (I based my decision to buy it on the many positive reviews for it.) I connected the battery wire inside of it and then I hooked the unit up to my Desktop PC by way of the USB cord that came with it. There wasn’t a CD software disk provided with mine (and I assume there wasn’t supposed to be one) but I did locate and download from the APC website the particular edition software that works with it. I installed the software without a problem. I immediately went into the settings and disabled all the alarms inasmuch as I don’t want to be inconvenienced by them going off. I have not had a power outage yet so I don’t really know that this unit is going to do what it is supposed to; however, all indications are that all is well with it. If there is anything of value to add to this review after the fact, I will post it. I am not disappointed so far.Edit (July 8th, 2016): Today we had a power outage (lasting a few hours) and the unit did exactly as I was hoping it would. Only my desktop pc was plugged into it at the time and when the outage occurred the pc stayed up and running. It allowed me to turn off the computer in the normal manner. The battery recharged back to 100%. I love this thing! Glad I bought it.

    I WILL NEVER NOT HAVE ONE OF THESE. I cannot tell you how much money I have saved on replacement batteries, fried electronics, poorer battery life as a subsequent effect of fluctuating power, and blown fuses. I have bought FOUR of these. Yes, four. One for just the router; one for my TV with PS4 and any other attachments; one for my husband’s laptop, monitor, Switch, and chargers; and one replacement because Georgia’s power grid is sketch and blew one of my UPS. IT COULD’VE BEEN MY WHOLE SETUP INSTEAD and I’m SO glad I had this UPS. I paid a lot of money for my devices of entertainment and I will not lose my fun investment to ratchet electricity. (Ignore the rats nest of cables — he doesn’t subscribe to twist ties.)
