Working from home? Do not lose critical date from a power outage

Published by Lee Kelly on 23 March 2020

With many people working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic people will be working with some of the usual safety precautions put in place by companies to ensure precious data and work efficiency is not stopped. Most companies put in place for the workplace backup UPS and generators so that if there is any power issue or power cuts the company can still work as planned this ensures you can keep on working and helping your company grow.

While at home you may not and probably don’t have any of these precautions or even know about them. While you won’t have a power loss setup like at work you can have smaller home  devices to ensure you do not lose anything you are working on and can save any data before any serious loss can affect you.

The device you can use to protect yourself from power failure and other power-related issues is an uninterruptible power supply or UPS for short.
