The Ajax security system informs users about alerts and events using three types of notifications: push notifications, SMS, and phone calls.
Notifications can be set up in user menu:
- User settings
|Types of system events||What happened||Types of notification|
Ajax apps can notify the users of hub looses connection with the server using a standard push-notification sound or a siren sound (enabled by default).
- Push notifications are sent by the Ajax Cloud server over the internet to the user’s Ajax app.
If some users do not have access to the notification feed in the app, they cannot receive push notifications.
When you disable push notifications for certain types of events and alarms, these notifications cease to be displayed in the notification list of the phone/tablet. But regardless of these settings, all system events and alarms are shown in the event feed in the Ajax app.
- SMS are sent to the phone number provided by the user when creating an Ajax account.
- A phone call is the hub calling the phone number specified in the Ajax app account.
We call only in the event of an alarm to get your attention and reduce the feasibility of you missing a critical alert. It is recommended that you enable this type of notification. The hub consecutively calls all users who have enabled this type of notification in the order specified in Users Settings. The hub calls every 2 minutes at most. The call is automatically dropped as soon as you answer it. The hub does not call again if the call was dropped or unanswered.
Make sure to save the phone number associated with the hub SIM card in your contacts!
To reduce the possibility of missing an alert, we recommend you enable all types of notification for this type of system events.
Ajax notifies of events only users added to the hub and the security company.
