In this video, we’re going to be putting together a mini Raspberry Pi server with a built-in UPS. A Raspberry Pi makes a great server for a NAS or for media streaming, home automation or even a home security hub for your cameras. All of these projects can benefit from having a built-in UPS to ensure that the Pi is kept running in the event of a power interruption.
