Can i use a UPS battery as back up for a security camera?
i have it hooked up a vcr to record while i'm away but i'm wanting to hook it up to my UPS incase the electric goes off it will keep recording for a little bit. i have it estimated by a chart that it will power the recording vcr and camera for 2 hours. buy my questions is could the UPS do any damage to the camera and could the vcr or damage damage the UPS?

It should work fine!
2 hours sounds a little long, the manuals often brag "up to x minutes"
you may not get this long under actual conditions
you can always pull the plug to test it
