I know your pain but there isn't going to be a way around this, this isn't a UBNT issue but an issue with regulatory. The rule you're dealing with is the same rule that keeps you from plugging a power strip into a power strip so that you don't overload a circuit. Inspectors see a UPS as a fancy powerstrip. I remember fighting this 10 years ago and gave up where Fire inspections made me pull PDUs from UPSs which were setup not to overload the UPS because that is dumb but to keep the wiring neat / tidy and the rack modular.
UBNT no longer supports MFI / mpower, there never was a battery backup option that I know of so there won't be a way to make this work. Beyond that, APC as other UPS vendors sell network connected battery backup units that offer a lot of the same features, outlet switching, current monitoring, battery condition monitoring over network. The issue is aggrigating that data into a centralized monitor be in something built into a product like solarwinds or Zabbix / grafana with SNMP, this is a more build it yourself where mFi was more cookie cutter.
