Communication through steel and concrete

Fibra

Fibra communication technology allows you to wire lines up to 2 km long. Eight lines in one system run by Hub Hybrid minimise potential damage. Even a completely broken line leaves the security system at 87% operational. And with wireless detectors, this percentage will be even higher.

Jeweller

Jeweller radio protocol provides two-way communication between the hub and wireless devices at a distance of up to 2,000 meters, allowing remote system control and alarm transmission in 0.15 seconds.

Jeweller applies time frames to synchronize devices communication, authentication to prevent forgery, and encryption to protect the data. An energy-efficient protocol provides wireless devices with from 2 to 7 years of battery life.

Up to 5 range extenders with a communication range of up to 1,800 meters can be connected to Hub Hybrid by radio or cable via Ethernet.

Always online via Ethernet and cellular networks

Hub Hybrid can be connected to three Internet providers at a time via Ethernet cable and 2G, 3G, and LTE SIM cards. Automatic switching between channels takes seconds.

Hub is available in two versions: Hub Hybrid (2G) supporting 2G cellular networks and Hub Hybrid (4G) supporting 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE networks.

More than two days on a backup battery

Hub Hybrid with a backup battery can power a system of 30 wired devices for up to 60 hours. To check the system project and estimate the power consumption of devices, use the Fibra power supply calculator. Wireless devices do not require additional power supply, as they are battery-operated.

Fibra detectors consume tens of times less energy than similar line detectors from other manufacturers.
Anti-sabotage

The six countermeasures

Tampers to alert of demounting and case opening

Demounting and case opening detection

The hub board features two tampers that detect opening and demounting attempts.

Authentication against forgery

Protection against device forgery

To authenticate devices, unique tokens and properties are used. The hub checks them for each communication session. If any parameter fails the check, the hub ignores the device commands. The procedure excludes the possibility of system control by a third-party device: key fob, smart button, or keypad.

Connection loss notification in a minute

Hub communication loss detection

Ajax Cloud server polls the hub at intervals of 10 seconds or more. In case of mobile frequencies jamming and disconnection of the wired internet, the server can inform a monitoring station about the complete isolation of the object in just a minute.

Encryption and frequency hopping to protect data

Data protection

All the data stored and transmitted are protected by block encryption with a dynamic key. Radio communication uses frequency hopping, making interception and jamming more difficult.

Jamming alert
in 30 seconds

Jamming detection

The hub analyses the quality of communication with system devices. If some data packages are lost, the hub will change the transmission frequencies and inform the monitoring station of interference detection.

Events delivery in 0.15 seconds

Event transmission and delivery

The monitoring station is notified about alarms and system events in 0.15 seconds. Due to the addressability of devices, the message includes the time, device model, device name, event type, and room.

Physical protection of the line against break

Hub Hybrid features 8 lines and supports Ring connection topology — up to 4 rings in a hybrid security system. In the event of a line breakage, the ring splits into two working segments, devices continue to operate, and the system notifies a security company and users about the incident.

Ring topology is available with OS Malevich 2.16 and higher.

Features

Alarm photo verification in 9 seconds

Hub Hybrid supports MotionCam detectors. When triggered, detectors take a series of photos, helping to evaluate the situation at the facility. Visual verification helps you instantly assess the situation, saving users from concerns and security companies — from unnecessary dispatches.

Hybrid alarm control panel Ajax Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G)

A burglar alarm is used for timely detection of violations on the territory under protection. The purpose of the security system is to:
  1. Guaranteed detection of intrusion into the protected area.
  2. Immediately notify the security service or the owner of the threat.
These tasks are solved by installing security devices and competent equipment correctly. The choice of the type of alarm for the protection of the premises depends on several factors, important: the features of the protected space, the kind of object, the need to connect the alarm to the central console of the security company or the transmission of an alarm signal to the local security service of the object, the stage of repair or construction of the premises. A complete security alarm system includes a set of software and hardware devices. The security system usually consists of a control panel, sensors (intrusion, opening, movement, etc.), panic buttons. Data about incidents and the current situation at the guarded facility are automatically received from sensors or panic buttons when the alarm is manually activated. Security systems use IR motion sensors, reed door sensors, contact or ultrasonic glass break sensors, vibration and other types of detectors. Additionally, when used in complex fire and security alarm systems, temperature sensors, smoke detectors, and in some cases, gas and water leakage sensors in office or residential premises are connected. Stationary alarm buttons or radio key fobs are used as panic buttons. The primary device of the security alarm system is the control panel of the security system, which receives information about all events in the territory under protection. Depending on the settings and type of the control panel, it can perform several functions when an emergency detection signal is received. Typically, for continuous operation of the central alarm systems are equipped with spare communication channels and backup power supplies. When the panel receives an alarm signal, it will activate sound or light warning systems. Alarm systems are of various types and purposes. A siren or other audio-visual detectors may sound when the burglar alarm is activated. The signal can be sent to a control system or a centralized security console using a radio channel, GSM, or a telephone line. Depending on the settings, it is possible to inform users about events by SMS messages, push notifications or calls. Alarm control panels are designed to collect information from various sensors connected to them, give an alarm signal, and control multiple automation devices through built-in relays. Various types of fire and security sensors, as well as sirens, light and sound alarm detectors, critical electronic readers, control keyboards and light sources, are connected to the security system central. In addition, control panels can collect information from wireless sensors and cameras, depending on the model. In most cases, the control panel housing is made of plastic or metal, and the printed circuit board has terminal blocks for connecting wires. In some types of control panels, there is a place for the battery, and there is a power supply. A GSM module for sending messages and transmitting information can be located on the alarm control panel board or separately in the housing. Alarm control panels are programmed using utility programs using a laptop. Programming means configuring the security device to the user's needs individually.

Ajax Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) — hybrid security alarm control panel

The Ajax Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) alarm control panel is the first Ajax control panel to support the new Fibra wired devices and Jeweler wireless devices. The device controls the operation of all Ajax sensors connected to the security system. It sends an alarm signal to the owner and the security console immediately after a detected threat. The Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) alarm control panel supports photo-captured sensors and has eight independent lines with ring topology support. Provides communication range with Ajax detectors up to 2000 meters via the Jeweler radio protocol without obstacles. And Fibra wire technology allows you to create independent lines up to two km long. The operating frequencies of the control panel are 868.0-868.6 MHz. The device supports 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE Ethernet networks. Combining the two technologies allows you to build comprehensive territory protection, regardless of the size and ceilings and metal or concrete. Security is strengthened by informative messages and photo-verification of alarms, complete real-time system control from the Ajax mobile application, and customizable automation scenarios. Central security alarm Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) is made in a laconic design of durable plastic. The appearance is universal and suitable for installation in any interior.

Features of the control panel Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G)

Fibra technology Using Fibra wired technology, Hub Hybrid (4G) creates independent links up to 2 km long. Eight lanes in a single system running Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) white minimize the possibility of a loss of connection and potential damage. Thanks to this principle of operation, even a complete break in one line leave the security system working by 87%. And with wireless sensors in the system, this percentage becomes higher. Jeweller technology Jeweller's two-way radio protocol allows the Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) to communicate with the system's detectors at a distance of up to 2000 meters in the absence of obstacles. Jeweller allows remote control of the security system and transmits alarms in 0.15 seconds. The wireless radio protocol uses frames to encrypt communications, protect data from theft, synchronize device communication sessions, and authenticate to prevent forgery. An energy-efficient protocol allows wireless security sensors to operate on supplied batteries for up to 7 years. Up to 5 repeaters with a communication range of up to 1800 meters can be connected to the Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) via radio or Ethernet cable. Photo verification of alarms in 9 seconds Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) supports MotionCam Outdoor and MotionCam wireless motion sensors. Sensors take a series of pictures immediately when motion is detected and allow you to evaluate what is happening on the object in dynamics. The Wings radio protocol is used to quickly transfer a series of photos and verify the delivery of photo confirmations. Ajax Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) is always online via cellular networks and cable connection Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) can be connected to three Internet providers simultaneously — via Ethernet cable and 2G cellular networks. Automatic switching between communication channels takes a few seconds. The Hub Hybrid alarm control panel's backup battery can power a system of 30 wired instruments for 60 hours. And devices connected via radio do not need additional power and operate from their built-in batteries. Antisabotage With the help of the tampers on the device case, attempts to dismantle and open the subject are detected. The Ajax Cloud server polls the Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) every 10 seconds and determines its operability. In case of disconnection of wired Internet and simultaneous jamming of mobile communication frequencies, the server can inform the security console about the isolation of the object in 1 minute. The devices in the system are authenticated using unique properties and tokens that the hub verifies on every communication session. If any of the parameters does not pass the test, the control panel ignores the device commands. The procedure excludes the possibility of controlling the system by a third-party device: key fob, keyboard or smart button. Jamming and communication loss detection in less than a minute Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) analyzes the quality of communication with connected devices. If part of the packet is lost, the control panel changes frequencies to transmit information and informs the remote control about interference in the air. There is data protection by frequency hopping and encryption. All transmitted data is protected by block encryption with a floating key. In radio transmission, frequency hopping makes it challenging to intercept information and jam the signal. Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) polls devices every 12 seconds. The administrator sets the polling frequency for wireless devices, and the hub automatically determines the minimum possible interval for wired devices. Thanks to this principle of operation of the control panel, it takes 36 seconds to detect the loss of a device from communication and notify the security console about the incident. Security Automation with Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) The Hub Hybrid control panel allows you to create 32 automation scenarios and minimize the impact of the human factor on safety. The Hub can manage the protection of an object or group according to a given schedule. The user can activate the house machine when entering the room, de-energise the room, turn on emergency lighting in case of fire and shut off the water in case of a leak. Hub Hybrid gives you the ability to control electric locks, lights, roller shutters and garage doors — in case of a sensor alarm, change of security mode or by pressing a button. The Ajax Hub Hybrid (4G or 2G) signalling central works under OS Malevich, a real-time operating system developed by Ajax Systems.
