KeyPad Fibra User Manual

Updated

KeyPad Fibra is a wired touch keypad of the Ajax security system. Controls the security modes and Night mode. Supports duress code and protected from access code guessing. When it is active, the LED indication notifies about the security mode.

The keypad is compatible with Hub Hybrid (2G) and Hub Hybrid (4G). Connection to other hubs, radio signal range extenders, ocBridge Plus, and uartBridge is not provided. Integration with other security systems is not provided either.

KeyPad Fibra works as part of the Ajax security system, exchanging data with the hub using the secure Fibra wired protocol. The wired connection range is up to 2,000 meters when using a U/UTP cat.5 twisted pair.

KeyPad Fibra is part of the wired Fibra devices line. The installation, sale, and administration of these devices are performed only by accredited Ajax partners.

Operating principle

KeyPad Fibra is a touch keypad to control the Ajax security system. It controls the security modes of the entire object or individual groups and also allows you to enable or disable the Night mode.

You can control the security modes with KeyPad Fibra using general or personal codes. Before entering the code, you should activate the KeyPad Fibra by touching any part of the touch panel.

When the keypad is activated, the backlight turns on, and the built-in speaker beeps. Backlight brightness and keypad volume are adjustable in keypad settings in Ajax apps.

If you do not touch the keypad for 4 seconds, KeyPad Fibra reduces the brightness of the backlight, and 8 seconds later goes into power saving mode and turns off the display.

As the keypad goes into power saving mode, it resets the commands entered.

Access codes

KeyPad Fibra supports from 4 to 6 digit codes. Entering the code should be confirmed by pressing one of the buttons: (Arm), (Disarm) and (Night mode). Any characters typed accidentally are reset with a button (“Reset”).

KeyPad Fibra supports code types as follows:

  • Keypad code — common access code. Set in the settings of each keypad. When used, all events are delivered to Ajax apps on behalf of the keypad.
  • User code — the personal code of the user who has an Ajax account and is linked to the hub. Each system user sets the code independently in the hub settings. When used, all events are delivered to Ajax apps on behalf of the user. The code works for all keypads that are connected to this hub.
  • Unregistered user code — the code of the user who does not have an Ajax account. The code is set by an administrator or PRO with system setup rights in the hub settings. When used, events are delivered to Ajax apps with a name associated with this code. The code works for all keypads that are connected to this hub.

The number of codes supported depends on the hub model.

KeyPad Fibra also supports arming without entering a code, if the Arming without Code function is enabled in the keypad settings. This function is disabled by default.

Duress code

A duress code allows you to simulate alarm deactivation. The Ajax apps and sirens installed at the object will not give you away in this case, and the security company and other users of the security system will be warned about the incident.

Features of the alarm when entering the duress code:

  1. Security company monitoring station receives an alarm event Disarming under duress. The rapid response team is going to the object.
  2. All users of the security system receive a notification with no alarm about disarming the system, and the notification is indicated by a red icon .

If the security system is disarmed with a duress code erroneously, contact the security company monitoring station.

The keypad supports both common and personal duress codes. The common duress code is set in the keypad settings. The personal duress code is set by the user individually in the hub settings.

Function button

KeyPad Fibra keypad has the Function button. The button can work in one of three modes:

  • Alarm — the panic button mode. After pressing, the system sends an alarm to the security company monitoring station and users and activates the sirens connected to the system.
  • Mute Interconnected Fire Alarms — after the Function button is pressed, the system disables the sirens of Ajax fire detectors.
  • Off — the button is disabled, and after pressing the system does not execute any commands.

Interconnected Fire Alarm muting

KeyPad Fibra can disable interconnected Fire Detectors Alarm by pressing the Function button if configured in Mute Interconnected Fire Alarm mode. The response of the system to pressing the button depends on the settings and the state of the system:

  • Interconnected Fire Alarms have propagated — the first pressing of the Function button mutes all fire detector sirens, except for those that registered the alarm. Pressing the button again mutes the remaining detectors.
  • Interconnected Alarm Delay Time lasts — pressing the Function button mutes the siren of the triggered Ajax fire detector.

The option works only if the Interconnected Fire Detectors Alarm option is enabled in hub settings.

With the OS Malevich 2.12 update, users can mute fire detector alarms in their groups and at the same time not affect the operation of detectors in those groups to which they do not have access.

Unauthorized Access Auto-Lock

If a wrong code is entered three times within one minute, the keypad will be locked for the time specified in its settings. During this time, the hub will ignore all codes, while simultaneously informing the users of the security system about an attempt to guess the code.

A user or PRO with administrator rights can unlock the keypad through the app. Also, unlocking occurs automatically after the lock time specified in the settings expires.

Two-stage arming

KeyPad Fibra participates in arming in two stages. This process is similar to arming with a personal or common code on a keypad. The process should be completed by re-arming with SpaceControl or restoring the terminating detector (for example, closing the door with DoorProtect Fibra installed).

KeyPad Fibra cannot act as a terminating device in two-stage arming.

Fibra data transfer protocol

The keypad uses Fibra technology to transmit alarms and events. This is a wired data transfer protocol that provides fast and reliable two-way communication between the hub and the connected devices. Using the bus connection method, Fibra delivers alarms and events instantly, even if 100 devices are connected to the system.

Fibra supports floating key block encryption and verifies each communication session with devices to prevent sabotage and spoofing. The protocol requires regular polling of detectors by the hub with a predetermined frequency to monitor communication and display the status of the system devices in Ajax apps.

Sending events to the monitoring station

An Ajax security system can transmit alarms to the PRO Desktop monitoring app as well as the Central Monitoring Station (CMS) using SurGard (Contact ID), SIA DC-09 (ADM-CID), ADEMCO 685, and other proprietary protocols. See a complete list of supported protocols here.

KeyPad Fibra can transmit the following events:

  1. The duress code is entered.
  2. The panic button is pressed (if the Function button works in the panic button mode).
  3. The keypad is locked due to an attempt to guess a code.
  4. Tamper alarm/recovery.
  5. Loss/recovery of connection between KeyPad Fibra and the hub.
  6. Temporary activation/deactivation of KeyPad Fibra.
  7. Unsuccessful attempt to arm the security system (with the system integrity check enabled).

When an alarm is received, the monitoring station operator of the security company knows what happened and where the rapid response unit has to be sent. All Ajax devices are addressable, so events, the device type, its assigned name and location (room, group) can be transmitted to PRO Desktop and the CMS. The list of transmitted parameters may differ depending on the type of the CMS and the selected communication protocol.

The device ID, loop (zone) number, and bus number can be found in device states in the Ajax app.

Selecting the installation site

When choosing where to place KeyPad Fibra, consider the parameters that affect the operation of the device:

  • Fibra Signal Strength.
  • Cable length for connecting KeyPad Fibra.

KeyPad Fibra is mounted on a flat vertical surface with the bundled screws. The keypad is intended for indoor installation only. For convenience, we recommend installing the keypad at a height of 1.3–1.5 meters from the floor.

Consider the placement recommendations when designing the security system project for your object. The security system should be designed and installed by professionals. The list of authorized Ajax partners is available here.

Do not install KeyPad Fibra

  • Outdoors. This could damage the keypad.
  • Inside premises with temperature and humidity outside the permissible limits. This could damage the keypad.
  • In places where the keypad has an unstable or low signal strength. This can lead to a loss of connection between the hub and the keypad.
  • Where articles of clothing, power cables, or an Ethernet cable could be an obstacle to the keypad. This can lead to false clicks on the touch panel of the device.

Fibra Signal Strength

The Fibra signal level is determined by the number of undelivered or corrupted data packages over a certain period. The icon in the Devices tab in Ajax apps indicates the signal strength:

  • Three bars — excellent signal strength.
  • Two bars — good signal strength.
  • One bar — low signal strength, stable operation is not guaranteed.
  • Crossed out icon — no signal, stable operation is not guaranteed.

The following factors affect the signal strength:

  • The number of detectors connected to one Fibra line.
  • Cable length and type.
  • The correctness of wire connections to the terminals.

Design

To correctly install and configure security system devices, it is important to properly design the security system. The design must consider the number and types of devices at the object, their exact location and installation height, the length of wired Fibra lines, the type of cable used, and other parameters. Tips for designing Fibra wired systems are available in this article.

Topologies

Currently, Ajax security systems support two topologies: Beam (Radial wiring) and Ring.

Connecting devices using a Ring topology will be implemented in the next OS Malevich updates. Hardware update of Hub Hybrid is not required.

Beam connection method (Radial wiring) occupies one bus output of the hub. Only the segment that remains physically connected to the hub will function in the event of a line break. All devices connected after the breakpoint will lose connection with the hub.

ajax keypad fibra

Ring connection method occupies two bus outputs of the hub. If the ring breaks in one place, no device will be disabled. The ring reconfigures into two lines, which continue to operate normally. Users and the security company will receive notification about the break.

ajax keypad fibra
Beam (Radial wiring) Ring
  • occupies one bus output of the hub
  • up to 8 beams with the same hub
  • up to 2,000 m of wired communication for the same line
  • a terminating resistor is installed at the end of the line
  • occupies two bus outputs of the hub
  • up to 4 rings with the same hub
  • up to 500 m of wired communication for the same ring
  • no terminating resistor is installed at the end of the line

Both device connection topologies can be built on the same hub. For example, you can use two ring connections and four beam (radial) connections.

Different types of devices can be connected to the same Fibra line. For example, you can connect opening detectors, motion detectors with photo verification support, sirens, and keypads to the same line.

The devices are connected to the Fibra line one by one, as shown on the figure. Line branching is not supported.

ajax keypad fibra

For the Beam (Radial) topology, be sure to install a 120 Ohm terminating resistor at the end of the line (included in the hub complete set). The terminating resistor is connected to the signal terminals of the last detector on the line.

ajax keypad fibra

Cable length and type

The maximum range of a wired connection using the Beam (Radial) topology is 2,000 meters, and using the Ring topology — 500 meters.

Recommended cable types:

  • U/UTP cat.5 4 × 2 × 0.51, copper conductor.
  • Signal cable 4 × 0.22, copper conductor.

If you use a different type of cable, the communication range for wired connections may vary. No other types of cables have been tested.

Verification using a calculator

To make sure that the project is calculated correctly and that such a system will work in real practice, we have developed a communication range calculator of Fibra lines (in progress). The calculator helps to check the quality of communication and cable length for wired Fibra devices with the selected configuration at the system design stage.

Additional information

The maximum current that Hub Hybrid can supply in total for all Fibra lines is 600 mA. The total current consumption of the devices in the system depends on the type of cable, its length, the type of connected device, the quality of the connection of conductors, and other factors. Therefore, after selecting devices, we recommend verifying the project using the Fibra calculator.

Up to 100 devices can be connected to Hub Hybrid at default settings.

Preparing for installation

Cable arrangement

When preparing to route cables, check the electrical and fire safety regulations in your region. Strictly follow these standards and regulations.

It is safest to route cables inside walls, floors, and ceilings: this way they will be invisible and unavailable for intruders. It also ensures their greater durability: the cable will be affected by fewer external factors affecting the conductor’s natural wear and insulating layer.

As a rule, security system cables are laid during the construction or repair stage and after wiring at the object.

If impossible to install cables inside the walls, route them so that the cable is sufficiently protected and hidden from prying eyes. For example, in a cable tray or a protective corrugated pipe. It is recommended to hide them. For example, behind the furniture.

We recommend using protective pipes, cable conduits, or corrugated pipes to protect cables, regardless of whether they are routed inside the wall or not. The cables should be arranged carefully: no sagging, tangling, or twisting is allowed.

Consider the places of possible signal interference. If the cable is routed near motors, generators, transformers, power lines, control relays, and other sources of electromagnetic interference, use twisted-pair cable in these areas.

Cable routing

When routing cables for a security system, consider not only the general requirements and rules for electrical installation work but also the specific installation features of each device: installation height, mounting method, how the cable is inserted into the enclosure, and other parameters. Before installation, we recommend you read the selecting the installation site section of this manual.

Try to avoid any deviations from the security system project design. Violation of the basic installation rules and the recommendations of this manual lead to incorrect operation, as well as loss of connection with the KeyPad Fibra.

Check the cables for bends and physical damage before installation. Replace the damaged cables.

Signal cables of Fibra devices must be laid at a distance of at least 50 cm from the power cables when laying parallel, and, if they intersect, at a 90° angle.

Observe the permissible bend radius of the cable. It is specified by the manufacturer in the cable specifications. Otherwise, you risk damaging or breaking the conductor.

Fibra devices are connected to the line one by one. Line branching is not supported.

Preparing cables for connection

Remove the insulating layer of the cable and strip the cable with a special insulation stripper. It strips the cable properly without damaging the conductor. The ends of the wires that will be inserted into the detector’s terminals should be tinned or crimped with tips. This ensures reliable connection and protects the conductor from oxidation. Recommended cable lug sizes: 0.75 to 1 mm².

Installation and connection

Before installing KeyPad Fibra, make sure that you have selected the optimal location and that it meets the requirements of this manual. Cables should be hidden from prying eyes and located in places inaccessible to intruders to reduce the chance of sabotage. Ideally, run the cables in the walls, floors, or ceilings.

When connecting to the device terminals, do not twist the wires together; solder them. The ends of the wires that will be inserted into the terminals should be tinned or crimped with special tips. This will ensure a reliable connection. Observe safety procedures and regulations for electrical installation work when connecting the device.

Connecting KeyPad Fibra to the hub

  1. Remove the SmartBracket mounting plate from the keypad. To do this, lightly press the panel and slide it down.
  2. Remove the KeyPad Fibra board from the holders on the mounting panel, pulling them to the sides and pulling the board towards you.
  3. Prepare holes for cable output in advance. To output cables from the back of the keypad, break out the perforated part on the SmartBracket mounting panel. To output cables from the bottom of the keypad, make holes in the bottom of the enclosure using a drill bit, a special milling cutter for small holes, or hand-cutting tools.
  4. Disconnect the external power and the hub backup battery.

    +24V — power supply terminal of 24 V⎓.
    А, B — signal terminals.
    GND — ground.

  6. Run the cable from the hub into the mounting panel of the keypad through the holes made. If the cable is routed from the bottom of the keypad, pass it through the special channels on the mounting panel. They are necessary for a more reliable fixation of the cable.
  7. If the keypad is not the last device in the connection line, prepare a second cable in advance. The ends of the wires of the first and second cables, which will be inserted into the keypad terminals, must be tinned and soldered together, or crimped with special tips.
  8. Attach the mounting panel to a vertical surface at the chosen installation location using the bundled screws. When attaching, use all fixing points. One of them, in the perforated part of the mounting panel, is needed to trigger the tamper in case of an attempt to tear the device off the surface.
  9. Install the KeyPad Fibra board on special mounting panel holders.
  10. Connect the wires to the terminals according to the scheme below. Follow the polarity and connection order of the wires. Securely fasten the wires to the terminals.

    +24V — power supply terminal of 24 V⎓.
    А, B — signal terminals.
    GND — ground.

  11. If the keypad is the last in the line, install a terminating resistor in case of Beam (Radial) connection by connecting it to the signal terminals of the device. For Ring connection terminating resistor is not needed.
    ajax keypad fibra

    If possible, we recommend connecting devices using the Ring topology (hub — device — hub). This improves the antisabotage protection of the system.

  12. Connect the backup battery and external power supply to the hub. Turn on the hub.
  13. Reattach the keypad to the SmartBracket mounting panel. Fix the keypad with the bundled screw at the bottom of the enclosure.
  14. Add device to the system.
  15. Run a Fibra Signal Strength Test. The recommended signal strength is two or three bars. If the signal strength is one or zero bars, check the connection correctness and the cable integrity.

Adding to the system

The keypad is compatible only with Hub Hybrid (2G) and Hub Hybrid (4G). Fibra devices can only be added and configured through the PRO app by a user with administrator rights.

Types of accounts and their rights

Before adding a device

  1. Install the PRO app. Log in to a PRO account or create a new account if you don’t have one.
  2. Add a hub compatible with the device to the app, make the necessary settings, and create at least one virtual room.
  3. Make sure that the hub is on and has Internet access via Ethernet and/or mobile network. You can check the connection in the Ajax app or by looking at the LED on the hub board: it should light up white or green.
  4. Make sure the hub is not armed and does not start updates by checking its status in the Ajax app.
  5. Make sure the device is physically connected to the hub.

KeyPad Fibra is locked for the time specified in the settings if an incorrect password is entered three times in a row within 1 minute. The corresponding notifications are sent to users and to the monitoring station of the security company. A hub administrator or PRO with administrator rights can unlock the keypad in the Ajax app.

Security control of the object using a keypad code

  1. Activate the keypad by touching any touch button.
  2. Enter the Keypad Code.
  3. Press the button (Arm), (Disarm) or (Night mode).

LED indication

ajax keypad fibra

KeyPad Fibra can report the current security mode, button pressings, malfunctions, and other conditions with LED indication and a sound signal.

The current security mode is displayed by the backlight after the keypad is activated. The information about the security mode is relevant, even if it is changed using another Ajax device (SpaceControl or another keypad) or an app.

Event LED indication Note
Touch button pressed. Short beep, the current system security status LED blinks once. The volume of the beep and the brightness of the backlight depend on the keypad settings.
The system is armed. Short beep, Armed or Night mode LED lights up.
The system is disarmed. Two short beeps, Disarmed LED lights up.
Wrong code entered. Long beep, digital unit LED backlight blinks 3 times.
The armed mode cannot be activated (for example, a window is open, and the System Integrity Check is enabled). Long beep, the current security status LED blinks 3 times.
The hub does not respond to the command — there is no connection. Long beep, LED indicator X (Malfunction) is light.
The keypad is locked due to an attempt to guess a code. Long beep, security status indicators and keypad backlight blink 3 times.

Malfunctions

If a keypad malfunction is detected, a malfunction counter is displayed in Ajax apps in the upper left corner of the device icon.

All malfunctions can be seen in the States of devices. Fields with malfunctions will be highlighted in red.

KeyPad Fibra malfunctions

  • The keypad temperature is out of acceptable limits.
  • The keypad enclosure is open or detached from the surface (tamper button triggering).
  • No connection between the keypad and the hub via the Fibra protocol.
  • Low voltage of the KeyPad Fibra power supply line.

Maintenance

Check the functioning of your keypad regularly. The optimal frequency of checks is once every three months.

Clean the enclosure and keypad touch panel from dust, cobwebs, and other contaminants as they emerge. To do this, turn off the keypad first to avoid false alarms in the attempt to guess a code. Use a soft dry cloth suitable for equipment care.

Wipe the touch panel gently: scratches can reduce the sensitivity of the keypad. Do not use substances that contain alcohol, acetone, petrol, or other active solvents to clean the keypad.
