You mean, it does not have a serial port or a USB port? 

UPS communicate with the PC either over a serial or an usb port.  The 
APC 800 that I have has a strange looking connector for the USB port.  
It looks like a RJ45 connector but with a different type of notch.  
Only the USB cable supplied by them will fit into this socket, the 
other end has a regular USB cable that can be connected to the PC.  
Works like a champ with apcupsd.

Please look carefully.  Ask the vendor how does the UPS communicates 
with the PC.
