Here is what I have done.  We have the Emerson (Liebert) UPSs.  I have a UnDP polling 2 items :

1. upsSecondsOnBattery
2. upsEstimatedChargeRemaining

If #1 > 0 then send an alert that the UPS went to battery.  If #2 < 25% (battery) send an alert that the UPS battery is almost out of power.

Once power is restored the I'll get reset alerts.

Also, check out the Content Exchange. There are numerous pre-made pollers available for APC, Emerson, and TrippLite UPS systems that you might be able to use.

Did you setup a Universal Device Poller that reports you when your UPS power is lost?

If not, setup one. I do not know which OID would be the most relevant. Run a MIB walk on your UPS private mib and you should find which OIDs are available.

Once done follow the below post to create your alert:
