The identifier (ID) is the serial number of the device. It is located under the QR code on the body, board, and packaging of the device.

ID at the bottom of the box

ID under the lid

The ID can also be found in the device states in the Ajax app.

  1. Sign in to the Ajax app.
  2. Select the required hub from the list if you have several of them or if you are using a PRO app.
  3. Go to the Devices menu.
  4. Select a device from the list. Device ID information is located at the bottom of the status screen.

OS Malevich 2.13 adds to the system a new user right — managing privacy settings.

A user with this right determines which users of the security system can take photos on demand, view photos taken on demand, and have access to video surveillance cameras.

Copied

Photos on demand are not sent to the security company CMS (central monitoring station). They are available only in Ajax apps for users who have access to these photos.

Copied

Photos on demand are only available for detectors with the “PhOD” mark in its name.

MotionCam Jeweller detectors can take pictures in case of a motion alarm using the built-in camera.

MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweller detectors, in addition to photos by alarm, can take photos on demand and photos by scenario (in case of other Ajax devices alarm).

The Ajax security system provides 4 tests to select the correct installation location for the devices, and to check their proper operation:

The Jeweller and Wings Signal Strength Tests determine the signal strength and stability at the intended location of the device.

The Detection Zone Test helps to determine at what distance the detector will detect motion. To determine the Detection Zone, monitor the LED indicator of the device: during the test, it lights constantly, and turns off when motion is detected.

The Signal Attenuation Test helps to artificially reduce or increase the power of the radio transmitter. The test simulates a change in the room environment to check the connection stability between the device and the hub.

The detector can take photos with one of three resolutions (in pixels):

  • 160 × 120
  • 320 × 240 (set by default)
  • 640 × 480

To set the image resolution in the Ajax app:

  • Select a hub if you have several of them or if you are using the PRO app.
  • Go to the Devices tab.
  • Select MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweller from the list.
  • Go to its Settings .
  • Set the required image resolution.

When properly installed and configured, MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweller detector does not react to pets weighing up to 20 kg and up to 50 cm tall.

The detector sensitivity parameter also affects the pet immunity. To set it up, in the Ajax app:

  • Select a hub if you have several of them or if you are using the PRO app
  • Go to the Devices tab.
  • Select MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweller from the list.
  • Go to its Settings .
  • Set up the sensitivity:
    • Low — it does not respond to pets up to 50 cm tall.
    • Medium (default) — it does not respond to small dogs (up to 35 cm tall).
    • High — the detector does not respond to cats (up to 25 cm tall).

MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweler runs for up to 3 years on pre-installed batteries.

MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweller communicates with a hub at a distance of up to 1,700 m in an open space.

To expand the Ajax security system coverage area, use the ReX 2 radio signal range extender.

MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweller is designed for indoor use only. Outdoor installation can lead to false alarms and in the worst case — to failure of the device.

The detector operation time on the pre-installed batteries may be significantly reduced at low temperatures.

Copied

MotionCam (PhOD) Jeweller detects motion at a distance of up to 12 meters.

Copied

Detectors with photo verification have two radio modules and operate via two protocols: Jeweller and Wings. Jeweller is used for transmitting alarms and events, while Wings is used for transmitting photos.

ReX has only one radio module and supports only the Jeweller protocol.

Detectors with photo verifications can be connected to a ReX 2 radio signal range extender that supports both protocols.

Copied

The image delivery time to Ajax apps depends on the resolution of the images, connection to the range extender, level of the Wings signal, and the speed of the Internet connection. The alarm notification is transmitted in 0.15 seconds.

Photo resolution Delivery time*
Detector is connected to the hub** Detector is connected to the hub using ReX 2 (ReX 2 transmits photos via Wings)*** Detector is connected to the hub using ReX 2 (ReX 2 transmits photos via Ethernet)****
160 × 120 pixels up to 6 seconds up to 8 seconds up to 6 seconds

(set by default)
up to 9 seconds up to 18 seconds up to 10 seconds
640 × 480 pixels up to 17 seconds up to 31 seconds up to 16 seconds
* The detector requires up to 3 seconds to start taking photos on demand.
** Delivery time for one image provided that the signal strength between the hub and detector is 2-3 bars, and the hub is connected to the Internet via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or 4G.
*** Values were calculated with a signal strength of 3 bars between ReX 2 and the detector, and between the hub and ReX 2. The hub is connected via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or 4G.
**** Values were calculated with a signal strength of 3 bars between ReX 2 and the detector. The hub is connected via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or 4G.

By default, only the first 10 alarms come with photos. This can be changed in the detector settings in the Alarms with photo verification section.

Copied

When the data buffer of the detector or hub is full, alarms come without photos and notifications are displayed with a crossed-out eye icon in the app.

Permanent triggering in combination with radio interference or loss of connection between the hub and Ajax Cloud may be the reason for the full data buffer.

Copied

The temperature is measured by sensors inside each detector, which can heat up differently due to the circulation of air currents in the room. The value may differ from the ambient temperature by 2°C.

The temperature displayed in the Rooms tab is the average of these temperatures for each detector assigned to the room.

The firmware version can be found in the device states in the Ajax app.

  1. Sign in to the Ajax app.
  2. Select the required hub from the list if you have several of them or if you are using a PRO app.
  3. Go to the Devices menu.
  4. Select a device from the list. The firmware version information is located on the status screen at the bottom.
