FAQ

You can turn off the flashing of the security detector’s LED indicator in the device settings. This option is available for DoorProtect, DoorProtect Plus, MotionProtect, MotionProtect Plus, CombiProtect, MotionProtect Outdoor, MotionCam, and GlassProtect detectors with firmware version 5.55.0.0 or higher, as well as for MotionProtect Curtain with firmware version 6.53.1.1 or higher.

With OS Malevich 2.9 update, temporary deactivation of devices without removing them from the system has become available. Deactivation may be necessary if the device is incorrectly installed or configured, loses connection with hub, or is defective.

To deactivate a device, go to its settings (Ajax appDevices tab → select the device you needSettings Temporary Deactivation).

Tamper is a miniature button on the device board. It is released when the lid is opened as well as a result of an attempt to unfasten and/or lift the device from the surface, which initiates an event.

When the tamper is released, the Hub sends push notifications and SMS messages (if this type of notification is enabled) to all users of the security system and also communicates the event to the central monitoring station of the security company.

If the tamper is released, Ajax applications display the Open status in the Lid field of the device menu. In addition, a malfunction badge appears on the device icon.

Each device measures temperature independently with an internal sensor. Air circulation in a room, along with other factors, may cause slight inconsistencies in the measured temperatures. The temperature displayed in the Rooms tab is an average of all the detectors in a given room and can differ from environmental temperature by 2-4°C.

The QR-code is located next to the power button, under the cover on the rear side of the detector. You can also find the QR-code on the box the device came in.

The maximum distance between the Hub and the detector can reach up to 2000 meters in open spaces. Walls, ceilings and other structures between Hub and the detector, reduce the range of action several times. In this case, the maximum distance depends on the material, thickness, and configuration of the walls.

Yes, under optimal dust, moisture and temperature conditions. The length of the wire loop should not exceed 5 meters.

No. The external terminal is a digital input, not a power output.

Magnets must be installed parallel to the main unit, on the right side. There is a special mark on the detector that shows where magnet should be placed. Small magnet works at a distance up to 1 cm from the detector, while big one – up to 2 cm.

The magnet is too far away from the reed switch. Re-install the magnet closer to the sensor or use a larger magnet. Magnets should be installed parallel to the main unit, on the right side.

To check that the device is operating correctly, carry out the detection area and signal strength tests.

The detection area tests allow you to determine the distance at which the detector will detect alarms and protect it from false triggering. In test mode, the LED indicator lights up continuously, switching off during the alarm. In order to determine the detection area, use the device’s LED indicator as a guide.

The Jeweller signal strength test allows to determine signal strength and stability in the potential installation place of the device.

The detector is designed to be installed indoors only. Installing the motion detector outdoors can cause false alarms as well as failure of the device. In case of failure to comply with temperature conditions, the battery life may be significantly reduced.

Copied

The detector is set to Always Active. If you don’t need this level of security, you can turn it off in the detector settings.

Always active mode is required for round-the-clock protection of an object, regardless of security system status (armed or disarmed)

Copied

Yes, you can. The detector is compatible with wired and wireless systems using ocBridge Plus or uartBridge.

By default, the hub is set to ping detectors every 36 seconds and to signal an alert after 30 undelivered pings. Under these settings, it will take about 18 minutes for the system to recognize a communication failure. You can adjust these settings in the hub settings → Jeweller.

The loop (zone) number is required to add a guarded facility to the CMS along with descriptions of all devices connected to the hub.

The loop (zone) number is available in the settings after activating the group mode in the Ajax application:

  1. Hub Settings Groups

Having selected a group, you will see a list of its devices. Each device has a Device No. (or DeviceIndex in Ajax PRO Desktop) that corresponds to the loop (zone) number. A number is assigned when a device is attached to the Hub. The first added device has the first loop (zone) number.

After a device or a detector is removed, its number will be assigned to the next added device. However, the numbering of other devices will not change.

In the Ajax app, select the «Devices» tab . Information about the firmware version and device ID is located at the very bottom of the tab with the device parameters.

Go to the Devices tab , select the relevant detector, and access its settings (press). Then specify the enter and/or exit delay periods. Then press Back to apply the settings.

Ajax mobil applications

In order for the delay to operate in the night mode, enable the Delay in Night Mode option..
