Cause

DX8100 doesn't support command from UPS system
A computer, of any type, can be issued the command to properly shut down when the battery back up is about to expire.

Resolution

The DX8100 series server is operating on an Embedded Windows OS and is, therefore, incapable of understanding the UPS command to shut down properly. There is a need to maintain vigilance over the CCTV/DX8100 system when a power outage lasts enough time to where the UPS' battery backup is about to expire.
