Ajax PRO Desktop User Manual

Posted on

Ajax PRO Desktop is a computer application designed for administration of the Ajax security systems: configure and test detectors, manage access, monitor and process alarms

PRO account

Ajax PRO Desktop application

You need a PRO account to enter the Ajax PRO Desktop application. PRO account is different from the account created in the Ajax Security System application. If you have not previously registered in the PRO application, register an account, and then log in to the application.

When you create a PRO account, you can use the same email address and phone number as for regular Ajax account.

When the option Stay in system is enabled, the login and password are remembered by the application, so you will not need to re-enter your account after restarting the application.
