Ajax apps can be installed on a smartphone from App Store or Google Play. If you don’t have such applications, you can download the installation APK file of the Ajax app through specialized services.

We do not guarantee the correct operation of Ajax apps downloaded through third-party services.

Please, check that the Allow installing applications from unknown sources option is enabled in the smartphone’s settings (depending on the phone model, the option name may vary). When enabled, run the downloaded APK file to install the app.

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.

Copied

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.

You can connect any IP camera using RTSP to the Ajax security system. In total, you can connect up to 10 cameras to Hub, up to 25 cameras to Hub 2, up to 50 cameras to Hub Plus, and up to 100 cameras to Hub 2 Plus.

Dahua cameras and video recorders can be added by scanning their QR codes (similarly to Ajax devices). And Hikvision and Safire video surveillance systems can be added to the hub with a few clicks. So you don’t have to waste time on setting up network equipment.



Dahua video recorders allow you to bypass the limit on the number of video surveillance devices that can be connected to the hub: up to 10 for Hub, up to 25 for Hub 2, up to 50 for Hub Plus, and up to 100 for Hub 2 Plus. The video recorder is a single device to which you can connect multiple video cameras. The video stream from each camera will be available in the Ajax app.

The access to the Ajax web application was closed on October 30, 2018.

In January 2018, a warning was added to the web application:

We’re announcing that we will be shutting down Ajax web app soon. We had ambitious ideas to make the multifunctional platform for the web browsers. But along the way, we have created mobile apps, which became the most popular way to control Ajax security systems for our users. And since it is a lot faster to launch new features through mobile apps, we decided to focus all our energies and resources on it.

Soon we will present a new Ajax Desktop app for PROs. With its help security firms and engineers will be able to monitor hubs and provide service remotely. All other users can still control their Ajax security systems through mobile apps for iOS and Android.

We have developed the Ajax PRO Desktop application for PC. It is secured, protected, TLS-encrypted, and it has all the features of the Ajax PRO: Tool for Engineers mobile application.
