Hub 2 runs OS Malevich — a real-time operating system developed by Ajax Systems. OS Malevich is extremely stable, immune to viruses, and protected from cyberattacks. Modular architecture simplifies the constant upgrading of OS Malevich.Hub receives new features several times a year with over-the-air updates. The update process is automatic and takes minutes when the security system is disarmed. The hardware configuration will allow Hub 2 to evolve and remain relevant for years to come.
Hub 2 is ready to operate out of the box. All communication modules, power supply, and backup battery are already installed. To start setting up the system, you need to connect the device to the power supply and the Internet, insert the SIM cards, and scan the QR code through the app. With the SmartBracket mounting panel, there is no need to disassemble the device body during installation.Connecting security devices, video cameras, users, testing the radio signal, creating groups and scenarios, even sending a request for connection to the CMS — all system settings are always available in the Ajax apps. Whether you are at the site or not.

Ajax Hub 2 (2G or 4G) alarm control panelEquipping residential and public buildings with automatic fire alarm systems is a mandatory safety requirement. The security system includes a set of devices with different purposes. Their main task is to detect illegal entry into a protected area or fire in the early stages of a fire. The basis of such systems is alarm control panels.
Types of control panels for alarmAlarm panels control two states of one or more loops: "normal", corresponding to the standby and armed mode, and "alarm". The alarm mode is activated when there is an attempt to damage the security system devices, when the territory is entered, or when other pathogens of the connected sensors are detected. The disadvantages of such receiving and control panels are apparent; they are the impossibility of precise localization of operation and low information content. There are no such shortcomings in addressing signalling devices to protect the territory. They allow connecting about 100 alarm sensors to one two-wire line, depending on the type of control panel. The digital method of data transmission increases the information content of the alarm loop, which contributes to the reliability of the security system. Since the implementation of the address principle requires the use of microprocessor control, such control panels can create various types of security zones, organize the interaction with other types of executive devices and flexibly configure them. It is important to note that the compatibility of security sensors with the alarm control panel must be ensured when using addressable systems. Another type of control panel is wireless. Devices of this type are radio frequency receivers with various monitoring functions. Professional radio channel systems include a set of devices with a different package of options. For example, an alarm control and management centre can work with wired loops and at the same time support the interface connection of a radio receiver. In this case, the control panel only receives data and transmits it for further processing. This principle of operation allows you to create security systems of various capabilities and complexity, suitable for installation in private houses, summer cottages or apartments.
Setting up and mounting of the receiving panelThe installation of security system devices takes place following the rules, which provide for:
- Even a minimal risk of unauthorized access to the alarm and the controls and switching devices.
- Efficiency and reliability of the security system.
- Fire and electrical safety.
Intelligent control panel Ajax Hub 2 (2G or 4G) for burglar alarmsThe Ajax Hub 2 alarm control panel is a device for organizing a remote or autonomous alarm based on wireless detectors and other devices using 2 GSM SIM cards and an Ethernet network. The alarm control panel coordinates the operation of alarm system devices, immediately reports alarms, and provides automatic intelligent control of security processes. The Ajax security system with the connected central Ajax Hub 2 (2G or 4G) supports the maximum number of:
- Work scenarios - 32.
- Security groups for device control - 9.
- Possible connected devices - 100.
- Ajax ReX signal repeaters - 5.
- There are 25 video cameras in the system.
- Rooms under protection - 50.
- The possible number of users is 50.
Features of the control panel for alarm Ajax Hub 2 (2G or 4G)Security system sensors detect the appearance of human movement, smoke, water, gas leaks, opening windows or doors. Third-party cameras are used for video surveillance. Alarm notifications are sent to users by push notifications, SMS or phone calls, and it is also possible to connect an alarm to the control panel of a security organization.
Redundant control panel communication channelsThe Hub 2 GSM module supports two SIM cards. The use of cards from two different operators provides the control panel with communication even if one of the networks is lost - the second SIM card is activated automatically. Users of the Hub 2 signalling control panel have access to an uninterrupted internet connection, thanks to work with different Internet providers; cellular to connect to one, Ethernet to the other. Even if the service provider fails and the Ethernet connection is lost, Hub 2 will connect to the 2G or 4G network to access the Internet. If one carrier's coverage is lost, the hub will immediately switch to the second SIM card. Unlike video surveillance, Ajax Hub 2 (2G or 4G) can transmit photo confirmations even if the connection speed is only 0.5 Kbps over a 2G network and delivers a series of images to system users.
Secure communication with video cameras, sensors, signal repeatersThe Ajax Hub 2 alarm control panel receives information from sensors in encrypted form and runs on OS Malevich with protection against viruses and cyberattacks. The Hub continuously checks the health of the detector every 12-300 seconds using two-way communication. The check frequency is individually configurable. Ajax Hub 2 switches the signalling to other frequencies if signal jamming is detected. Hub is wholly protected from viruses at the software level. An Internet connection allows Ajax Hub 2 to communicate around the clock via an encrypted channel with the Ajax Cloud server. This principle of operation guarantees prompt receipt of updates, secure access to the device, storage of its settings.
Photo verification of alarmsA distinctive feature of Ajax Hub 2 from the Hub and Hub Plus control panels is the expansion of opportunities for transmitting visual information and connecting Ajax MotionCam motion sensors with a built-in camera thanks to the Wings radio protocol. MotionCam provides the system user with an animated series of 1-5 photos, which he will receive in less than 9 seconds after detecting and triggering the sensor. Thanks to the Wings radio protocol, photo verification is guaranteed even with an unstable signal and communication interruptions - built-in algorithms recheck and reload packets, and the reliability of the communication channel is increased thanks to the use of a dedicated control panel antenna. When an alarm is detected, the alarm sensor can take up to three pictures at 640x480 or up to 5 images at 320x240, depending on the settings. The Ajax application reproduces the photo in animation, providing information in dynamics for a correct assessment of the situation. The infrared illumination of the camera provides good visibility even in the dark and is activated only on alarm. Snapshots can be saved all at once as a series of photos or MP4 videos or individually.
Installation and configuration of the control panel Ajax Hub 2 (2G or 4G)Ajax Hub 2 is mounted on the SmartBracket mount, and the built-in power supply allows you to connect the device directly to the mains without installing an outlet. Alarm sensors are connected through a free phone app after reading the QR code on the device. The detectors are installed in a line-of-sight zone up to 2 km or within several building floors. Ajax's sensors work without recharging for up to 7 years, taking every minute pings to check the performance of devices.
