Linux Redhat7.1 + UPS

I have a functioning CyberPower 325SL UPS hooked to the serial port on my linux rh7.1 box.

When I cut the power and it goes to battery, I dont really see any message from powerd or that init is going to halt for the powerfail.
Does this take longer than immediate to occur? Or do I need to manually activate (or maybe install) powerd?
