In your case I would get two so that each machine can be signaled to  
separately and if it is a two way street reply separately.  I have  
never used the UPS daemons so don't know how they work but I doubt  
they are made to work with multiples on the UPS.

If you are not going to have the machine interact with the UPS then  
you can get one to cover both machines
