Back Up Battery Options

So I just learned that if the power goes out my Alarm System is rendered useless.

 

Any suggestions on what type of battery back ups I can buy (Brand, Model #s) to plug in-line to keep the alarm system still working; even if its just the doors; I guess that means the Router & Tablet need to stay powered.

 

Thanks.

one of the Belkin 12vdc power supply with internal battery units rather than a short run time UPS...

You see them for Uverse modems a lot. It has a single inverted power cable, center pin + and provides 12vdc at 1.5 amps for up to 4 hours.. I believe it has a small center pin, won't work on a sb 6121/41/83 with large pin modem or the advanced gateways. I simply add a second pigtail with the correct connector.
