Ajax detectors operate at distances up to 2,000 meters (6,552 ft) from the Hub in open space. In most spaces, this provides enough leeway not to worry about changing the floorplan or moving the furniture. The signal will still reach to the Hub instantaneously.
It’s easy to create a system that works at long distances. It’s much more difficult to make sure it operates smoothly. We equipped the Hub with smart technology that maintains a minimum level of power output. This allows detectors to maintain stable operation for up to 7 years.
Ajax Hub always knows whether or not a detector is operational. Two-way communication, addressable detectors and regular pings from 12 seconds ensure system integrity. If a detector fails or is compromised, Ajax will immediately determine the cause and report on it.
In order to avoid signal fading or failure, we’ve equipped the Hub with two separate antennas. The Hub analyzes signal quality in real time and chooses better and stronger one. This extra precaution guarantees detectors remain connected even in extreme radio conditions.
Ajax Hub and its detectors are equipped with multi-layered protection against tampering, jamming and general failure. In the event of any kind of external interference, the system quickly and accurately determines whether a detector has been compromised, recognizes the nature and scope of the damage, and instantly notifies the owner and/or security company of the situation.
One frequency simply isn’t enough for a reliable security system. For that reason, Ajax can work on multiple different frequencies. If the system experiences jamming, our algorithm instantly and automatically shifts communication to an unaffected channel. If attackers somehow affect the entire frequency band, the Hub will send an emergency alarm notification.
People generally prefer to live in houses or apartments with large windows and open rooms. Protecting these vast spaces is not a problem for a single Ajax Hub. With the ability to control and monitor up to 100 devices simultaneously, the Hub offers enough range to install detectors on every door and window of most residential houses or apartments.
The Ajax system is capable of maintaining itself. Ajax Hub automatically detects, downloads and installs the newest and most secure software updates. Once you’ve set up the system, there’s no need to worry about installing updates and you can make adjustments from anywhere in the world.
All data transfers — from the Hub to a device or from a device to the cloud — are delivered in small data packets and encrypted using a proprietary algorithm based on the AES standard. So there’s no need to fear any brute force attacks: cracking the encryption key would take an unfathomable amount of time.
