πŸ“˜ StreetSiren User Manual

StreetSiren is a wireless street siren with the capacity up to 113 dB. It can be quickly installed and set up, is furnished with bright LEDs, and can operate from a power unit or up to 5 years from batteries.

StreetSiren operates within the Ajax security system, by connecting via the protected Jeweller protocol to the Hub. The communication range is up to 1,500 meters if there are no obstacles.

The siren is set up via a mobile application for iOS and Android-based smartphones or a web application. The user is notified of all events through push notifications, SMS messages and calls (if activated).

Not compatible with the Ajax uartBridge or Ajax ocBridge Plus

The Ajax security system is self-sustaining, but the user can connect it to the central monitoring station of a private security company.

StreetSiren Operating Principle

The siren significantly improves the efficiency of the security system, being the most operational means of response to the intrusion into a protected area. With a high probability, its alarm signal and the light indication will be sufficient to frighten away the intruders.

The device is furnished with a powerful buzzer and bright LEDs - StreetSiren can be seen and heard from far. Subject to correct installation, it would be hard to dismount and deactivate the actuated siren: the body is firm, the buzzer is protected by a metal net, there is an autonomous power supply and even the on/off button is locked in case of alarm.

StreetSiren has no tamper to detect removal or tearing-off from the attachment, an accelerometer (motion detector) is used instead. If the accelerometer is switched on, the alarm will be actuated, if the siren is dismounted.

Connecting the Siren to the Hub

Before starting connection:

  • Following the Hub instruction recommendations, install the Ajax application on your smartphone. Create an account, add the Hub to the application, and create at least one room.
  • Go to the Ajax application.
  • Switch on the Hub and check the internet connection (via Ethernet cable and/or GSM network).
  • Ensure that the Hub is in armed mode and does not start updates by checking its status in the mobile application.

⚠️ Only users with administrative privileges can add the device to the Hub

How to connect the siren to the Hub:

  1. Select the Add Device option in the Ajax application.
  2. Name the device, scan/write manually the QR Code (located on the body and packaging), and select the location room.

  3. Select Add β€” the countdown will begin.
  4. Switch on the device

The on/off button is recessed in the body and is rather stiff, you may use a thin solid object to press it.

The StreetSiren siren operates only with the Ajax security system. Up to 10 sirens may be connected to the Hub.

Request for connection to the Hub is transmitted for a short time at the time of switching on the device. If the device was already assigned to another hub, switch off StreetSiren, then perform the standard adding procedure.

If the connection to the Hub failed, LED in the corner will blink 6 times, then the entire LEDs ring will blink 3 times and the siren will switch off. You may repeat the connection attempt then.Β 

The siren connected to the Hub will appear in the list of devices of the hub in the application. Update of the siren statuses in the list depends on the device inquiry time set in the hub settings, with the default value - 36 seconds.

Performance testing

The Ajax security system allows conducting tests for checking the functionality of connected devices.

The tests do not start straight away but within a period of 36 seconds when using the standard settings. The test time start depends on the settings of the siren scanning period (the paragraph on β€œJeweller” settings in Hub settings).

  • Volume Test
  • Signal Strength Test
  • Fading signal test

Installing the Siren

Make sure that the alarm in case of actuation of the accelerometer before the device location is identified and the device is installed is switched off in the siren settings siren - to avoid the siren actuation. Β 

Location of the StreetSiren determines its remoteness from the hub and presence of any obstacles between the devices, hindering the radio signal and sound transmission: walls, inserted floors, large-size objects located within the room.

Check the signal level at the installation location

If the signal level is one division, we cannot guarantee stable operation of the security system. Take possible measures to improve the quality of the signal! As a minimum, move the device - even 20 cm shift can significantly improve the quality of reception.

The siren body has the dust/moisture protection class IP54 - the device may be placed outdoors. Recommended installation height - 2.5 meters and more. This will complicate the access to the device for intruders in case of entering. Β 

Do not install the siren in places where the acoustic signal will be attenuated.

Siren Installation

Before installing the siren, make sure that you have selected the optimal location and it is in compliance with the conditions contained in this manual. In installing the siren, be careful and observe safety regulations!

In installing and operating the StreetSiren, follow the general electrical safety regulations for using electrical appliances, as well as the requirements of regulatory legal acts on electrical safety.

It is strictly prohibited to disassemble the device under voltage! Do not use the device with a damaged power cord.Β 

  1. The StreetSiren siren can operate up to 5 years from factory-assembled batteries (subject to the inquiry frequency by the hub of 1 minute) or approximately 5 years of the buzzer sound. If you want to use the external power supply (12 V), then drill a hole for wires in the SmartBracket attachment. Prior to installation, make sure that there is no damage of the wire insulation!
    You need to drill a hole in SmartBrecket to lead out a wire of the external power supply.
  2. Fix the SmartBracket panel on the surface using factory-made screws. After selecting other attachment hardware, make sure that they do not damage or deform the panel.

    We warn away from using double-sided adhesive tape for either temporary or all the more permanent attachment of the siren.Β 
  3. Put the siren on the SmartBracket panel and turn it clockwise. Fix the device with a screw.
    Fixing the siren attachment with a screw will minimize the risk of spontaneous theft of the device.

Siren Maintenance and Battery Replacement

Check the operational capability of the HomeSiren on a regular basis. Clean the siren body from dust as it appears.

Do not use for cleaning the siren any substances containing alcohol, acetone, gasoline and other active solvents.Β 

The siren can operate up to 5 years from factory-assembled batteries (subject to the inquiry frequency by the hub of 1 minute) or approximately 5 years of the buzzer sound. In case of the battery discharge, the security system will send the respective notices and the corner LED will smoothly go up and down when the system is set in or removed from the guard mode (if the indication is activated), if the alarm is actuated, in the event of dismounting, or unauthorized opening.

It is not recommended to replace batteries yourself! Contact Support Service or the Service Centre for battery replacement.
