Answer: 
You have to determine what the combined wattage requirements of the cameras and dvr are. From this information and the manufacturer's information, you should be able to determine how long this battery backup will keep that equipment running.

Answer: 
The runtime is a calculation of the percentage of capacity used by the equipment. So, since the BE550G (ES 550) has a watt capacity of 330 watts, the total load would need to be under that capacity. The further below the max capacity the load is, the more runtime you will get. For example: At 100 watts you'll get about 28 minutes, at 200 watts you'll get about 10, and at max capacity you'll get about 3.

Answer: 
You have to know the wattage draw of the sump pump. Also take into account whether or not the pump is running continuously or intermittently. How long are the intermittent periods of time that it would be running? From this information, you should be able to determine if this product is the right choice for what you need.

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. Although we do not manufacture UPS units specifically for sump pumps, we would typically recommend one of our Smart-UPS and not a Back-UPS for this type of application. Smart-UPS are better suited for motorized loads, such as sump pumps.

550VA UPS Battery Backup is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replacemment Battery The battery had no markings that would enable me to find a replacement on the APC site. Lead Acid Batteries vary according to the ratings. The UPS ES 550 did not have any specifications for the battery. This site is not consumer friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I upgraded I finally broke down and upgraded my UPS. I had a very good UPS from APC, but since I now use Mac OS 10.8.5, I could not make use of the old UPS. The old UPS did not have a usb port. Well, I did buy it new in 2003 and it worked fine with the older Mac OS 9.x. The new one has a usb port and works great so far. All I had to do was unpack it, open the battery cover, plug in the red connector, replace the cover and plug in the power cord and usb connection to my trusty old iMac. Other than possibly needing to replace the battery at some distant time, I am certain I will get a long life from this UPS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC 550 great product! Our small business has 8 of these for our PC workstations and they work great when the power goes out. It gives us plenty of time to save our work before shutting down if the power stays out for an extended period. I also like the fact that APC gives you a return shipping label so you can ship an old unit that you're replacing back to them for free, and they gave us a discount for the new unit. The units are guaranteed for 3 years. Very happy with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please add mounting holes Great device. Please add mounting holes on the back so the UPS can be hung on the wall. The previous model had these mounting holes. We miss them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and service My previous unit was 5 or 6 years old when the battery failed. I researched replacing the battery, but I wanted an APC replacement, not some after market product. Upon contacting APC, I was advised of their replacement program. I purchased an entirely new unit for a VERY reasonable cost, and they shipped it, plus provided a free shipping label for me to return the outdated model to them. Excellent program and great customer service! The phone representative who assisted me was also extremely helpful, and very friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS I purchased this UPS when the one I was previously using needed a new battery. This unit was a higher power rating and was only $10.00 more than just a battery. When I received the unit I discovered that the software that comes with it was much better than the software with the older unit. It allows me to schedule when alarms will sound, meaning that it won't beep in the middle of the night and wake my wife. For this alone, she gives it an A++! It was easy to setup and I've had no problems with it. I would recommend it highly, myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Backups We use these units throughout our company and they work well. This was a replacement/upgrade for one with a battery that was going bad. We seem to get about 6 years + out of a unit before the batteries start to show signs of needing to be replaced. In our areas they are a necessity as we get power outages and spikes enough that without them there could be some serious damage or loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This battery backup works great We purchased a garage door screen for the garage and we needed a power backup in case we lose power. When purchasing this battery backup I did not realize it would work both the garage door and the garage door screen, but it do and it works perfect. Very happy what's the purchase. This product was easy to install.
