Keypad Operating Principle

Keypad is a touch-sensitive keypad panel controlling the security system. 

The keypad is a stationary keypad and is located inside a room. It allows to set the system in the guard mode with a digital code or by pressing one button, switch on the night mode, remove the room from the guard mode, notify the private security company of the forcing to switch off the security system (by no means disclosing the user). 

Keypad is furnished with light indicators signalling about the security system status, about any problems with the detectors or interruption of the communication with the hub. Big touch-sensitive buttons are highlighted, if the device is activated by touch - the code may be entered without external lighting. Service life from factory-assembled batteries - up to 2 years.

Keypad operation indication

When the keypad wakes up, the LED is on, corresponding to the operating mode of the security system.

Indicators display the current status of the system: in the guard mode / removed from the guard mode / night mode. 

Information is up to date even if the status was changed by any other control device - application, fob. The status is updated if the device is waked up by touch.

After successful entering a code and setting the security system in or removing it from the guard mode, the keypad will smoothly blink with the "Fault" indicator. The touch-sensitive buttons will be locked for the time of activity of the indicator.
When trying to switch the keypad with the discharged batteries, it will emit a long sound signal, smoothly switch on and off the "Fault" indicator and then the keypad will switch off.

Connecting the Keypad to the Ajax Security System

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 disarmed 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.

The device may only be added if the Ajax security system is disarmed.

  1. Open a room in the mobile application or web application and select the option "Add a device".
  2. Give an arbitrary name to the detector, read out scan the QR code (or insert the ID manually), select a location room and go to the next step.
  3. When the application starts searching for a device and launches countdown, switch on the detector - it will blink once with an LED.

For the detection and interfacing to occur, the detector should be located within the coverage area of the wireless network of the hub (at a single protected object).

Request for connection to the hub is transmitted for a short time at the time of switching on the device.

If the connection to the hub failed keypad will switch off after 5 seconds. Repeat the connection attempt.

The keypad will appear in the list of devices of the hub. After adding the keypad to the system, it will have the following default codes: 123456 and "forcibly": 123457

Selection of the Keypad Location

While selecting the Keypad location, take account of the keypad distance from the hub and presence of any obstacles between the devices, hindering radio signal transmission: walls, inserted floors, large-size objects located within the room.

Do not install the KeyPad:

  1. Near radio transmission equipment, including that operated in 2G/3G/4G mobile networks, Wi-Fi routers, transceivers, radio stations, as well as an Ajax Hub (it uses a GSM network).
  2. In close proximity to electrical wiring.
  3. Close to metal objects and mirrors that cause radio signal attenuation or shading it.
  4. Outside the premises (outdoors).
  5. In rooms with a temperature and humidity exceeding the appropriate levels. 

Check the signal level at the installation location.

During testing, the signal level can be seen in the application and on the keypad panel - blue LEDs O (Guard mode), C (Removed from the guard mode) and (c) (Night mode), as well as red X (Fault),  are used.

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 touch-sensitive panel of the keypad is designed for operation with the device mounted on the surface. If you use Keypad in your hands, we cannot guarantee successful operation of the touch-sensitive buttons.

Keypad Capabilities

To activate the keypad, touch the touch-sensitive panel - the highlight of the buttons will be activated and a wake-up sound signal will be emitted.

If the battery is low, the highlight switches on at a minimum level, regardless of the settings.

If you do not touch the buttons for 4 seconds, Keypad will reduce the highlight brightness, and after another 12 seconds, the device will go to the sleep mode.

When switching over to the sleep mode, the keypad will clear the entered commands!

The keypad allows using codes with the length of 4-6 digits. The entered code will be sent to the Hub after pressing the buttons: О (activate the guard mode), С (deactivate the guard mode) and (с) (night mode). Erroneously entered digits can be cleared using the button C (Reset).

If you enter incorrect code three times during 30 minutes, the keypad will be interlocked for the time preset in the settings. The Hub will ignore any entered codes, simultaneously notifying the security system users of the attempt of guessing the code. The keypad will be unlocked automatically after expiration of the interlock time or manually by the administrator user.

Keypad also supports setting the system in the guard mode without entering a master code, by pressing the button O (activate the guard mode). These features are disabled by default.

If you press the button * (Function) without entering the password, command * will be sent to the hub and the function installed in the hub from the application will be executed.

KeyPad can notify a private security company of the system being removed from the guard mode forcibly - using the code "Forcibly". Unlike the panic button of the fob, if such code is entered, the user will not be compromised by actuation of the siren, and the keypad and message in the application will notify of the successful removal of the system from the guard mode.

Keypad Installation

Before installing the detector, make sure that you have selected the optimal location and it is in compliance with the guidelines contained in this manual!

Keypad should be attached to the vertical surface.

  1. Attach the SmartBracket panel to the surface using factory-made screws, using at least two fixing points (one of them - above the tamper). After selecting other attachment hardware, make sure that they do not damage or deform the panel.
    The double-sided adhesive tape may be only used for temporary attachment of Keypad. The tape will run dry in course of time, which may result in the falling of the keypad and damage of the device.
  2. Put Keypad on the attachment panel and tighten the mounting screw on the body underside.

As soon as the keypad is fixed in SmartBracket, it will blink with the LED X (Fault) - this will be a signal that the tamper has been actuated.

If the LED X (Fault) of the keypad is not actuated after installation in SmartBracket, check the status of the tamper in the Ajax Security System application and then the fixing tightness of the panel.

If the keypad is torn off from the surface or removed from the attachment panel, you will receive the notification.

Functionality 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 detector scanning period (the paragraph on “Jeweller” settings in Hub settings).

  • Signal Strength Test
  • Signal Fade Test

Keypad Maintenance and Battery Replacement

Check the Keypad operating capability on a regular basis.

The battery installed in the keypad ensures up to 2 years of autonomous operation (with the inquiry frequency [link to the Jeweller set-up clause of the hub manual]) by the hub of 3 minutes). If the Keypad battery is low, the security system will send the relevant notices, and the "Fault" indicator will smoothly go up and down after each successful password entry.
