Can't silence beeps on 350VA unit.
on August 29, 2016
I'll add a couple of stars since I should have caught the problem in my research.
I sleep with a CPAP machine. Having the power go out is a yucky way to get woken up. I bought this with the intention of providing backup while I sleep.
Unfortunately, it turns out that the alarm can only be silenced on the higher power units. Now instead of being woken up by my CPAP cutting off, I'm woken by the beeps.
Thankfully, I'm handy with a soldering iron. I was able to pop the case and remove the beeper. It's nice & silent now, but goodbye warranty.
If you're thinking about installing one of these at home, be sure to check the APC website for which ones can be silenced.
