man apcupsd should be some help.
The parameters I configured for a usb APC BACK-UPS ES 500 on Debian are:
# cat /etc/apcusd/apcupsd.conf | grep -v '#'
You need to change UPSCABLE (smart?), UPSTYPE (apcsmart?), and DEVICE
'BATTERYLEVEL 30' means shut down when battery level is at 30%
'MINUTES 6' Means shut down when there are 6 mins left on battery
You get the picture, man will tell you more.
