Ajax PRO Desktop is a computer app designed for administration of the Ajax security systems: configure and test detectors, manage access, monitor and process alarms
You need a PRO account to enter the Ajax PRO Desktop app. PRO account is different from the account created in the Ajax Security System app. If you have not previously registered in the PRO app, register an account, and then log in to the app.
When you create a PRO account, you can use the same email address and phone number as for Ajax Security System app.
To protect their account from hacking, Ajax PRO Desktop users can configure two-factor authentication, as well as check and interrupt their account sessions on other devices.
We recommend using all security tools to reduce the likelihood of outsiders accessing your security system control.
How to enable two-factor authentication
To enable two-factor authentication, click on the account icon in the upper right part of the screen and go to Two-factor authentication menu.
Click on the Enable toggle.
Follow the on-screen instructions to connect your account to the authentication app.
How to interrupt an account session on another device
To check active sessions of your account on other devices, click on the account icon in the upper right part of the screen and go to Sessions menu.
The session of the device from which you are logged into the Ajax app is displayed as Current session.
Sessions of other devices logged into your Ajax account are displayed as Other.
You can terminate a single session by clicking Terminate, or Terminate all other sessions except the current one.
Please change the password and activate two-factor authentication if unauthorized account sessions are detected.
Features of the main screen of the app
After logging in to your PRO account, you will encounter a window with a list of linked hubs. Unconnected hubs are marked with gray color.
The badge on the hub icon (red icon with a number) shows the total number of faults and security system events requiring attention.
|Types of Ajax devices||Events|
|Detectors: security, fire, leakage|
|Power management devices|
When you click the Refresh button, the app accesses the Ajax Cloud server and consequently updates the status and fault counters of the hubs connected to the account.
It takes approximately 1 minute to update the status of 1000 hubs
The Search Field enables the finding of a specific hub among those connected to the PRO account.
The PRO Desktop app searches by hub name and ID. You do not need to confirm the input of the search query — the hubs corresponding to the query are shown as you type the text in.
The Add Hub button enables the linking of a new hub to a PRO account.
You can change the PRO account data through the settings menu: name, email address, phone number, set avatar and the SMS alerts language as well as log out of the account.
If necessary, SMS notifications regarding the events and alarms of the associated hubs can be sent to the PRO account phone number if this type of notification is enabled
You can Report problem to the Ajax Systems support team and change the app language in the Settings menu.
Security system menu
The menu contains rooms, a list of devices, a an alert feed, and facility security control buttons.
Click the Hubs button to return to the list of hubs linked to a PRO account.
The field displays the period of time when the PRO account has access to the hub settings. By clicking on the field, you can request access from the hub administrator for 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours as well as permanent access. If the field is disabled, the PRO account possesses continuous access to the hub.
The field displays the current status of the security system. If you have the right to access the hub settings (refer to the previous paragraph), you can change the security system status, turn on Night Mode, and activate Panic Button by clicking on the field.

Monitoring is the functionality of the Ajax PRO Desktop app that enables the monitoring and processing of events of the hubs linked to the PRO account.
The monitoring window is invoked by clicking the Monitoring button on the main screen of the Ajax PRO Desktop app.
To ensure the correct performance of the Monitoring function, the push-notifications for the PRO-account have to be activated in the settings of the administrated hubs.

Monitoring is opened in a separate window without blocking other app functions.
New events are displayed at the top of the feed. Filtering is available by type: alarms, faults, events, and security.
500 latest events are available in the feed from all hubs
The alarms in the Events Feed have three statuses:
When an alarm is received from an associated hub, the Alarm handling menu is displayed in the Monitoring window. The appearance of the menu is accompanied with a “siren” sound.
If the Monitoring window is minimized, it expands over the entire screen on top of all windows if an alarm is received.
In order to go to the Alarm handling menu from the Monitoring window, double-click the alarm in the feed:
The Alarm Handling menu includes three blocks:
- The Alarm List of all hubs associated with the PRO account.
- Secured Object Info according to the alarm selected in the first field.
- An Event Log of the hub selected in the Alarm List.
The Alarm handling menu in the secured ob section displays the contacts of the hub users to facilitate prompt communication.
The drop-down list opens when you click on the field with information about user. By selecting a contact from the list, you will determine the Contact Name of the facility.
The phone number is copied by clicking on the icon to the right of the number
In order to process the alarm, you need to change the status of the event: Mark As Read first and then Start work. Meanwhile, the corresponding fields of the Event Journal of the hub will indicate the time of reading and processing.
After reading or processing the event can be commented on. The maximum number of characters — 500.
In order to cancel alarm processing, go to the Alarm handling menu and click the Revoke button — the alarm status will change and display as read and the alarm processing time record will be deleted from the Event Journal.
In order to return to the Monitoring window, click the cross button in the upper right corner of the Alarm handling menu.
