In this video, we’re going to be putting together a mini Raspberry Pi server with a built-in UPS. A Raspberry Pi makes a great server for a NAS or for media streaming, home automation or even a home security hub for your cameras. All of these projects can benefit from having a built-in UPS to ensure that the Pi is kept running in the event of a power interruption.

The UPS we’re going to be using is a UPS Plus module that GeeekPi sent to me. – https://bit.ly/2UGmGeD

It looks like a relatively simple board on the surface, but it has a number of great features, including power management circuits and I2C communication, enabling low voltage safe shutdown and automatic restarts.
