To see if the pi has crashed you don't really need this; the pi itself already has watchdog hardware, see https://www.domoticz.com/wiki/Setting_u ... i_watchdog on how to install it. This way you can read this phentermine otc results auto reboot if anything goes wrong, it makes a home automation setup way more reliable. Also, don't use sd cards for a pi server, get a usb stick instead. I never have any data corruption issues.
I have not had bad experiences with UPSes when they are used...

There is always just using an actual UPS for this purpose. Get one with a USB port and you could plug the Rasberry Pi into it and then install the appropriate software. When the UPS gets to a certain level, the Raspberry Pi would shut itself down.
