I'm unable to setup Ups monitoring with the New NUT 18.104.22.168 package for pfsense 2.3 . I've connected the APC BACKUPS PRO with the usb cable. My USB driver is usbhid. My configurations are
MONITOR upslocal@localhost 1 ups password master
driver = apcsmart
port = auto
desc ="APC BACKUPS PRO"
password = password
The error message in pfsense system log
Poll UPS [upslocal] failed - Driver not connected
I have google search but no luck.

The names and content of the config files are incorrect. The description says you are using a USB cable and that the driver is "usbhid", however the config file shows driver "apcsmart" which is a serial port driver rather than a USB driver. The ups name does not match the configuration either.
This isn't a configuration that the pfSense NUT package will produce. Are you editing config files by hand?
To configure your UPS, please go to Services / UPS / UPS Settings in the UI.
