Odds are that if you lose home power, you will probably also lose Internet access.

If you can overcome that, all you need is a UPS with a programming interface, and a program you write to poll that interface on a regular basis and send changes to your office via e-mail or by posting to your website. Simple Matter Of Programming. You may even be able to find a UPS which comes with software that already has the ability to fire off a program when power fails or is restored, which would leave you just needing a simple command-line-driven mailer, which you can find many examples of if you search the web a bit.

Be sure to plug your modem and/or router into the UPS and your Internet should stay up when the power goes out.

As I recall, The major mfgs make UPSes for this purpose already.

UPS's commonly come with a serial or USB port to connect to a computer - then just install the software that comes with the ups and enter the notify options - 'send text/phone call/fax/email' when power goes out...
