Ajax security system allows you to configure the reaction of Relay, WallSwitch and Socket in response to an alarm or change in security mode, Button click, as well as scheduled actions. The scenario in which the automation device will respond is configured remotely via Ajax apps.

Use scenarios to automate your security system and reduce the number of routine actions. For example, set up water shut-off by alarm of the LeaksProtect leak detector, scheduled heater activation, or automatic clothing the electric lock when the system is being armed.

Two types of scenarios can be bound to SpaceControl, KeyPad Plus or KeyPad:

  1. by alarm;
  2. reaction to arming/disarming.

If you choose scenario by alarm, an automation device (Relay, WallSwitch or Socket) will be triggered by pressing SpaceControl or KeyPad panic button.

Also, the automation device can respond to arming/disarming using SpaceControl or KeyPad. However, in this case, the device will also respond to automatic arming/disarming according to the schedule or using the app. In this type of scenario, the determining factor will be the system status, not the control device.
