I have an APC Smart-UPS 2200 and it logs once a day automatically.
Highest I noticed was 38.2 and lowest was 20.7.
Heat in my house tries to maintain 69F and no AC in the summer.
Funny thing is that the high temperatures were in February 2016. I admit
it was a mild winter, but I am not sure why the UPS would be that hot
inside. New Batteries in August 2015. It does have a temperature
controlled fan inside that turns on if the unit feels too hot.
