In our place, we get lots of brownouts, around 3-4 a day, some lasting a half a second (enough to kill a PC), a few seconds, to days at a time.
For those lasting more than a few seconds, we have a diesel generator for power, so no problem there, but my problem now lies with my electronics since these die if not connected to a UPS.
Now I've got around $20k worth of electronics in my room / office, from several computers, a big TV, audio components, etc. Now these I can easily solve by buying UPS for each and every one. My TV and audio receiver though, is a concern since each having their own 1kva UPS still kills it 50% of the time.
Now I'm wondering if I can buy or make (have made, rather, since I know nothing about electrical stuff) a 'UPS' that plugs in through the circuit breaker or somewhere else so that all my stuff, including the ceiling lighting (which I have a 1k basic home / room automation module placed which I cannot protect with an AVR or UPS).
And judging from my equipment, plus other stuff I'm most likely going to add, peak consumption would be around 10kva (with lots of headroom). So it this possible?
