You can also remote in with the terminal, and reset or shutdown. There are ramifications when you connect anything to the Pi pin header (the PiJuice thing). Tread carefully.

You can also get a local Pi to test the apc connnectivity stuff before deploying it to the remote location. If power outages are brief, a small UPS should do the job nicely. You should also be able to have the Pi email you when the UPS kicks on/off, or setup a web app on the pi that you can connect to to keep an eye on things.

Automation is cool once it's setup correctly.
