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?

    That should work okay. The UPS shouldn't cause any damage to the system. It just takes the place of the regular 110 system if the power is interrupted for any reason as long as the interruption doesn't exceed the battery supply time.
