I want to install an uninterruptible power supply for my system. Is there an basic formula to figure how many watts the UPS will need to supprot. Let’s say for a 32 channel Elite NVR, 2 16 port switches and 32 cameras. Also, a router and such but these are likely in the noise compared to the other components. I know I can pull the devices out of locked cases and find the wattage rating on the back of them. But I’m hoping this has been figured out already by someone. 

I tried to search the support site but I got too many results for my search on ‘uninterruptible power supply’.

Each device will use power (watts), use the Ohms law to calculate the wattage when you only have amps and voltage.

Items will have the watts (power consumption on the specification sheet), I could assist if you give me the exact models for the recorder, cameras and switches.
