DoorProtect Plus Jeweller User Manual

Updated

DoorProtect Plus Jeweller is a wireless opening, shock, and tilt detector. Supports connection of a third-party wired detector with a normally closed (NC) contact type. For indoor installation.

The detector is not compatible with ocBridge Plus and uartBridge integration modules.

DoorProtect Plus operates as part of the Ajax security system by connecting to the hub via the secure Jeweller radio protocol designed to transmit alarms and events. The hub communication range is up to 1,200 meters without obstacles.

Functional elements

  1. DoorProtect Plus opening detector.
  2. Large magnet. Operates at a distance of up to 2 cm from the detector, and should be placed on the right.
  3. Small magnet. Operates at a distance of up to 1 cm from the detector, and should be placed on the right.
  4. LED indicator.
  5. SmartBracket mounting panel. To remove the panel, slide it down.
  6. Perforated part of the mounting panel. Necessary to trigger a tamper in case of any attempt to detach the detector from the surface. Do not break it off.
  7. Connector for connecting a third-party wired detector with a normally closed (NC) contact type.
  8. QR code with the device ID. Used for communication between Ajax security system devices.
  9. Button to turn on/off the device.
  10. Tamper button. Triggers when an attempt is made to detach the detector from the surface or remove it from the mounting panel.

Operating principle

DoorProtect Plus is a wireless opening, shock, and tilt detector. If a standard installation method is used, the device consists of two parts: the left part (detector) contains the reed switch and the shock and tilt sensor, while the right part is the magnet that is needed to detect opening.

Opening is detected by a reed switch and a magnet built into the detector. When the magnet approaches or moves away, the reed switch changes the state of the contacts and notifies of opening/closing. The detector is equipped with one small and one large magnet. The small magnet operates at a distance of up to 1 cm from the reed switch, and the large one — up to 2 cm. If you do not need to detect opening of a door or window, you can install the detector without a magnet.

The shock sensor detects attempts to knock out a window or door and reacts to vibration when attempts are made to knock out a lock or break a door.

The tilt sensor detects vertical axis deviation of a device. Before the system is armed, the sensor remembers the initial position and is triggered if the deviation is more than 5°. This allows to protect windows, including skylights, and arm the system when the window is in the ventilation mode (be sure to deactivate the main detector in the settings before you do this).

All sensors of the detector work independently. Each sensor of the detector can be enabled or disabled in Ajax apps.

If triggered, the armed detector instantly sends an alarm to the hub, which activates the sirens connected to the system, triggers scenarios, and notifies users and the security company. All detector alarms and events are recorded in the events feed of the Ajax app.

Users know exactly where and when an alarm is detected. The notifications contain the time of alarm, its type, name of the hub (name of the guarded object), name of the device, and the virtual room to which the detector is assigned.

Jeweller radio technology

Jeweller is a radio protocol to provide fast and reliable two-way communication between the hub and connected devices. The protocol delivers instant data-rich alarms: security companies and users know exactly which detector has been triggered, and when and where it happened.

Jeweller uses encryption and authentication to protect against sabotage, and also regularly pings the system devices, displaying their status in Ajax apps. Jeweller operates at a distance of up to 1,200 m, providing reliable protection of objects and the best user experience for both system owners and installers.

Sending events to the monitoring station

The Ajax security system can transmit events and alarms to the Ajax PRO Desktop monitoring app as well as the central monitoring station (CMS) via SurGard (Contact ID), SIA (DC-09), ADEMCO 685, and other proprietary protocols. See a complete list of supported protocols here.

DoorProtect Plus can transmit the following events:

  1. Alarm/recovery of the DoorProtect Plus tamper.
  2. Alarm/recovery of a third-party wired detector connected to DoorProtect Plus.
  3. Loss/recovery of connection between DoorProtect Plus and the hub (or radio signal range extender).
  4. Temporarily turning DoorProtect Plus off/on.
  5. Unsuccessful attempt to arm the security system (with the system integrity check enabled).

When an alarm is received, the operator of the security company monitoring station knows what happened and where to send the fast response team. Addressability of each Ajax device allows you to send not only events but also the type of the device, the name assigned to it, and the room to the PRO Desktop or to the CMS. The list of transmitted parameters may differ depending on the type of the CMS and the selected communication protocol.

The ID and number of the device can be found in its States in the Ajax app

You can change the ping period of devices in the Jeweller menu of the hub settings.

To run a test in the Ajax app:

  1. Select the desired hub.
  2. Go to the Devices menu.
  3. Select DoorProtect Plus.
  4. Go to Settings .
  5. Choose a test:
    1. Jeweller Signal Strength Test
    2. Detection Zone Test
    3. Signal Attenuation Test
  6. Run the test.

Placement

ajax doorprotect plus

The device is for indoor use only.

Consider the recommendations for placement when developing a project for the security system of the facility. The security system must be designed and installed by specialists. The list of authorized Ajax partners is available here.

When choosing the location of the detector, consider the parameters that affect its operation:

  • Detection zone.
  • Jeweller Signal Strength.
  • Distance between the detector and the hub.
  • Presence of barriers for radio signal passage between devices: walls, interfloor ceilings, large objects located in the room.

The detector is placed on a movable part inside or outside the door frame/window frame.

When mounting the detector on perpendicular planes, use a small magnet. The distance between the small magnet and the detector should not exceed 1 cm.

If parts of DoorProtect Plus are mounted on the same plane, use a large magnet. The distance between the large magnet and the detector should not exceed 2 cm.

The magnet is attached to the right of the detector. The side on which the magnet is attached is marked with an arrow on the detector enclosure. If there is no need to detect opening, the magnet is not installed. In this case, it is necessary to disable the opening sensor in the detector settings in the Ajax apps.

ajax doorprotect plus

If necessary, the detector can be positioned horizontally. Do not install the detector with the LED indicator facing down, as this may cause it to fall and fail due to damage.

Signal strength

The Jeweller Signal Strength is determined by the number of undelivered or corrupted data packets exchanged between the hub and the detector within a certain period of time. Signal strength is indicated by the icon in the Devices tab:

  • Three bars — excellent signal strength.
  • Two bars — good signal strength.
  • One bar — low signal strength, stable operation is not guaranteed.
  • Crossed out icon — signal is missing.

Check the Jeweller Signal Strength at the installation site. If the signal strength is low (a single bar) or zero, we cannot guarantee the stable operation of the security system. Relocate the device, as repositioning even by 20 cm can significantly improve the signal reception. If the detector still has a low or unstable signal strength after relocation, use a radio signal range extender.

Detection zone

Consider the operating area of the magnet when choosing the installation location. Smaller magnets act at distances up to 1 cm from the reed switch, while larger ones act at distances up to 2 cm.

When installing the detector, run a Detection Zone Test. This allows you to check the operation of the device and accurately determine the sector in which the detector reacts to movement.

Do not install the detector

  1. Outdoors. This can lead to false alarms and damage to the detector.
  2. Inside metal structures. This may result in the loss of the radio signal.
  3. Near mirrors. This may result in the shielding or attenuation of the radio signal.
  4. In rooms with temperature and humidity out of the permitted operating range. This may lead to the detector damage.

Detector installation

Before installing DoorProtect Plus, make sure that you have selected the optimal location and that it meets the requirements of this manual.

To install the detector:

  1. Remove the SmartBracket mounting panel from the left side of the detector by gently pushing and pulling it down.
  2. If you are using a large magnet, remove the SmartBracket mounting panel from it by slightly pushing and pulling it down as shown in the previous step. If you are using a small magnet, disassemble its enclosure by prying up the back with a flat object. Use a slotted screwdriver for this.

    If there is no need to detect opening, the magnet is not installed.

  3. Secure SmartBracket mounting panel to the door or window frame surface using double-sided adhesive tape or other temporary fasteners.

    Use double-sided adhesive tape for temporary fixing only, as the device may come off the surface at any time and get damaged if dropped. As long as the device is taped, the tamper will not be triggered when the detector is detached from the surface.

  4. Mount the detector and magnet (if used) on the mounting panels. Once the detector is fixed in SmartBracket, the device LED will flash, signaling that the tamper on the detector is closed.
  5. Run the Jeweller Signal Strength Test. The recommended signal strength is two or three bars. If the signal strength is low (a single bar) or zero, we cannot guarantee the stable operation of the security system. Relocate the device, as repositioning even by 20 cm can significantly improve the signal reception. If the detector still has a low or unstable signal strength after relocation, use a radio signal range extender.
  6. Run the Detection Zone Test:
    1. Run a test to check the opening sensor. Open/close the door or window, and monitor the reaction of the LED: it should flash every time the door/window is opened or closed. If the detector fails to respond to opening in 5 cases out of 5 during the test, reduce the distance between the detector and the magnet.
    2. To check the tilt and shock sensor, enable these sensors in the detector settings before starting the test. Remove the left side of the detector from the mounting panel and place it on a flat surface. Run the test. To test the tilt sensor, lift the detector off the surface and tilt it vertically. To test the shock sensor, simulate a shock on the surface on which the detector is placed. Monitor the reaction of the LED: it should flash with each registered tilt and shock.
  7. Fasten the SmartBracket panels and back of the small magnet (if used) with the bundled screws using all fixing points. When using other fasteners, make sure they do not damage or deform the mounting panel.
    ajax doorprotect plus
  8. Fix the detector and magnet to the mounting panels.

Connection of a third-party wired detector

You can connect a wired detector with NC (normally closed) contact type to DoorProtect Plus. It can be a motion, opening, or vibration detector.

DoorProtect Plus will not power the third-party detector. The detector should be connected separately. To learn the type and input voltage of the third-party detector, refer to the device documentation or contact the manufacturer’s technical support.

Install the third-party detector no more than 1 meter away from DoorProtect Plus. Increasing the length of the wire degrades the quality of communication between devices.

To connect the third-party wired detector:

  1. Remove the detector from the mounting panel if already installed.
  2. Carefully break out the plugs in the detector enclosure for the output of wires.
  3. Route the cable of the third-party wired detector into the DoorProtect Plus enclosure.
  4. Connect the wired detector to DoorProtect Plus terminals.
  5. In DoorProtect Plus settings, enable the External Contact option.
  6. Check operation of the connected wired detector.

To receive an alarm when the roller shutters open, connect a wired roller shutter motion detector with a normally closed contact to DoorProtect Plus. The feature is available for devices with firmware version 5.53.1.0 and higher.

Maintenance

Check the functioning of the detector on a regular basis. The optimal frequency of checks is once every three months. Clean the detector body of dust, cobwebs, and other contaminants as they emerge. Use a soft dry cloth suitable for equipment care.

Do not use substances that contain alcohol, acetone, gasoline, and other active solvents to clean the detector.

The pre-installed batteries provide up to 5 years of the detector’s battery life at the rate of 10 openings/closings per day with the standard Jeweller or Jeweller/Fibra settings. When the detector batteries are discharged, the security system will send an appropriate notification to the Ajax apps, and the LED will light up and go out gradually when the detector raises an alarm.

We recommend you replace the batteries immediately upon notification. It is advisable to use lithium batteries. They have a large capacity and are less affected by temperatures.
