The Network UPS Tools package (in ports as sysutils/nut ) can manage
all sorts of UPS hardware, and you can set it to shutdown servers when
the UPS battery gets low.
http://www.networkupstools.org/compat/stable.html says the Back-UPS ES
is supported. I use nut on a similar USB-monitored APC UPS at home.
