Socket User Manual

Updated

Socket — wireless smart plug with energy monitor, performed as a European type socket-to-plug adapter (Schuko type F) designed for controlling the power supply of electrical devices and rated at a load of up to 2.5 kW. It is equipped with overload protection, energy consumption meter and load level indicator. The device is connected to the Ajax security system via Jeweller secure technology, the communication range is up to 1,000 m without obstacles.

Socket only operates with hub. Connection to uartBridge or ocBridge Plus integration modules is not provided

The Ajax security system is self-sustaining, but the user can connect it to the central monitoring station of a private security company.

Socket Operating Principle

Socket turns on/off 230 V power supply according to the scenarios or at user command via the Ajax Security System application.

Socket is furnished with a protection system against voltage variation beyond the range of 184 – 253 V or over-current protection above 11А. In this case, power supply is interrupted, resuming after normalization of the voltage and current values.

Maximum resistive load — 2.5 kW. In the case of inductive or capacitive loads, the maximum current is reduced to 8 A at 230 V AC!

You may view the consumed power of the electrical appliances connected via Socket through the application. There is a consumed electricity meter.

Under insignificant loads (below 25 W), inaccurate current and power consumption readings may be displayed due to hardware limitations.

Connecting to the hub

Before starting connection:

  1. Following the hub instruction recommendations, install the Ajax application on your smartphone. Create an account, add the hub to the application, and create at least one room.
  2. Go to the Ajax application.
  3. Switch on the hub and check the internet connection (via Ethernet cable and/or GSM network).
  4. Ensure that the hub is disarmed and does not start updates by checking its status in the mobile application.
  5. Connect Socket to the power supply and wait for 30 seconds.

Only users with administrative rights can add the device to the hub.

How to connect Socket to the hub:

  1. Select the Add Device option in the Ajax application.
  2. Name the device, scan/write manually the QR Code (located on the body and packaging), and select the location room.

  3. Select Add — the countdown will begin.
  4. The device should automatically be added to the hub.

If the Socket was previously assigned to the hub, connect a device with a load of at least 22 W for 5 s in the application during countdown (e.g. an electric kettle or iron) and then disconnect the load.

The Socket will not be assigned to the hub if the smart socket communicates with another hub

For the detection and interfacing to occur, the device should be located within the coverage area of the wireless network of the hub (at a single protected object). Request for connection to the hub is transmitted for a short time at the time of switching on the device.

If the connection to Ajax hub failed, wait 30 seconds and then try to add the device again.

Socket connected to the hub will appear in the list of devices of the hub in the application. Update of the detector statuses in the list depends on the device inquiry time set in the hub settings, with the default value – 36 seconds.

Current protection If active, power supply will be switched off if the strength of current exceeds 11A, in the inactive state the threshold is 16 A (or 13 A, if continues for 5 seconds)
Voltage protection If active, power supply will be switched off in case of a voltage surge beyond the range of 184 – 253 V

  • Switching on the Socket
  • Do not react

The Socket can respond separately to both the arming and disarming

The Socket informs the user of the power level consumed by connected appliances using the LED border.

If the load is more than 3 kW (purple), the current protection activates.

Functionality Testing

The Ajax security system allows conducting tests for checking the functionality of connected devices.

The tests do not start straight away but within a period of 36 seconds when using the standard settings. The test time start depends on the settings of the detector scanning period (the paragraph on “Jeweller” settings in hub settings).

Signal Strength Test

Installation of the Device

When choosing an installation place for the Socket, please consider the device remoteness from the hub and presence of objects that may obstruct the RF signal.

Do not install the device near sources of magnetic fields (magnets, magnetized objects, wireless chargers, etc.) and inside rooms with temperature and humidity outside the permissible limits!

To check the quality of the communication with the hub, test the signal strength in the Ajax Security System application for at least one minute.

If the device has a low or unstable signal strength, use a radio signal range extender ReX.

The Socket is designed to connect to a European two-pin socket (Schuko type F).

Maintenance

The device does not require maintenance.
