You can use your UPS as a backup power supply for a short time. The amount of time that it will run for is a function of its watts, amps, and battery voltage, and depends on what you are running. For a common measurement, a 1500VA-rated UPS will run a computer for less than an hour. If you get more than 10 minutes of run time, you can run a PC, networking gear, and monitor.
