The other thing to consider is a webcam like a dlink pointed at your control panel. I have a cloud backed dlink in my shop pointed at my controller. My problem isn't so much power outages as surges and partial drops. They don't trigger my power outage alarm but do trigger the furnace safety mechanisms. What I lucked out on is that my cheap century link router resets after power surges and drops. Because my router drops out the cloud loses connection with the camera and notifies me, I then just wait about 2 minutes and then check the control panel to see if we shut down. Has saved me the drive in to town in the middle of the night many times.
