APC UPS stuff is actually pretty open. You can find all the info you need by browsing the source of apcupsd:

For a quick-fix, you should be able to stick an mPort-S on the UPS, then use something like socat to bridge serial->IP to the mPort-S and use your favorite local daemon/software to talk to it.
