On Ajax integrations with the Central Monitoring Stations

FAQ

By default, a hub sends events and alarms to the security company monitoring station via the SIM card only once. If an error occurs during transmission, an event or alarm will not be delivered, and Not connected status will be displayed in the Monitoring Station field in the screen of hub states. Such errors can occur due to the router settings used by the security company.

For your hub to ignore errors and re-send events to an ARC, enable the Ignore network registration errors and Disable communication check with the operator in the hub settings. You can do this in the Ajax apps:

  1. Devices
  2. Hub
  3. Settings
  4. Cellular

After enabling these options, click Back to apply the settings. If events are still not sent, please contact our Support Service.

Visual alarm verification from MotionCam detectors can be displayed on the Manitou, ABsistemDC(NG), WBB, Horus and SBN monitoring stations. To configure photo transmission, use Ajax Translator version 1.6 or later.

A security company can also use the Ajax PRO Desktop app to receive photo verifications without Ajax Translator.

At the same time, MotionCam detector alarms without photos can be received by any monitoring station that supports SIA or Contact ID protocols.

The second IP address is a backup in case of direct connection to the Central Monitoring Station (CMS).

If the main IP address is not available, the hub uses the second IP address to send events.

The direct connection (Monitoring Station tab) is the channel used to transmit hub events directly to the Central Monitoring Station (CMS) of the security provider, bypassing our server.

When direct connection is used, all events are communicated directly to the security company’s central monitoring station without affecting the functioning of the Ajax apps. If the direct connection is lost for any reason, the server acts as a redundant communication channel.
