MotionCam (PhOD) Fibra

Wired IR motion detector supporting photo by alarm, photo on demand, photo by schedule, and photo by scenario features

New standard on intrusion detection

MotionCam (PhOD) has a built-in camera that takes photos once the detector is triggered. It needs just 9 seconds to show the actual situation on the scene. With visual evidence available in Ajax apps, the security company can quickly check whether the threat is real to respond accordingly. Photo verification relieves users of unnecessary anxiety and security companies of false patrol calls. It takes a click for the user to take an on-demand photo at any time to monitor the house's state. Also, the detector can automatically take pictures by an alarm of another device in the system and by a specific schedule.

Peace of mind on demand

MotionCam (PhOD) needs just a few seconds to show the actual situation on the scene and dispel the user's doubts in case of an alarm. It takes a click in the Ajax app to take an on-demand photo. Also, it can automatically take pictures at specific times or when selected devices in the system activate an alarm.

Privacy first

MotionCam (PhOD) is designed to control security, not privacy. Photos are protected from prying eyes at the detector, system, and software levels.

Strict permission distribution

Strict permission distribution

The Privacy menu in Ajax apps helps accurately adjust access to visual data for users and security company operators: who and when can request a photo, which detector can take on-demand photos, and who can view the received pictures or streams from integrated surveillance cameras.

Detailed event log

Detailed event log

The event log records 500 recent events within the system. The data is explicit with the device, time, and event description. On-demand photos are linked to the user who requested them. Photos can be received only by users with the Photo on Demand access. Security companies do not receive the photos.

Encryption and GDPR

Encryption and GDPR

Photos are encrypted at every stage of transmission. Only system users can access the virtual Ajax Cloud storage and view photos. While stored, no photos are processed or analysed. The Ajax Cloud service is hosted on geographically distributed servers that meet the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements.

MotionCam Fibra

Also, the Ajax product portfolio includes the MotionCam Fibra detectors without Photo on Demand, Photo by Schedule and Photo by Scenario functions.

Detection

No intruder goes unnoticed

PIR sensor

All Ajax motion detectors use PIR sensors by Excelitas Technologies — a field-leading American manufacturer specializing in designing and producing optronic components since 1931. Ajax Systems constantly proves the sensor's superior quality at the production stage: we test 100% of manufactured devices. Wrapped into Ajax technologies, it brings the utmost accuracy of intrusion detection.

PIR sensor

Special lens

The pattern of the Fresnel lens sections is designed to differentiate between the IR diagrams of a human, animal, and thermal noise. Large lens sections capture radiation at an adult's head and torso level. Smaller sections make the diagram more detailed. The lens provides the detector with accurate information about the thermal object in the detection zone and the nature of its movement.

Special lens

Thermal interferences filter

We processed thousands of thermal patterns caused by humans, animals, and the environment to develop the SmartDetect software algorithm. In armed mode, the detector constantly analyses the thermal diagram from the PIR sensor, including the IR radiation intensity, thermal spot size, movement speed, time spent in the detection zone, and other parameters. The algorithm identifies false alarm markers instantly and with high accuracy. As a result — the detector accurately responds to human motion without false alarms.

Temperature compensation

Temperature compensation is a software mechanism keeping the thermal diagram contrast even if the ambient temperature is close to the temperature of the human body. With each ambient temperature measurement, the detector corrects the PIR sensor data according to the coefficient table stored in its memory. The detector is effective over the entire operating temperature range.

Temperature compensation

Sensitivity level

The detector can adapt to the conditions of a particular facility, considering possible thermal interference or pets. The sensitivity setting changes the set of markers by which false alarms are filtered. Low sensitivity makes the detector less likely to respond to an active pet. A high sensitivity will raise the alarm in case of any motion in the detection zone.

Sensitivity level

Professional installation

With the correct installation at the height of 2.4 m and lens direction perpendicular to an alleged intrusion path, the detector provides an accurate thermal diagram and pet immunity. It instantly responds to a real threat, minimising false alarms caused by animals weighing up to 20 kg and below 50 cm in height.

Energy efficiency as a priority

Sabotage-resistant

Tamper alarm

Tamper alarm

The enclosure is hardwired with two tamper buttons, which notifies the security company and users once the detector is dismantled from the mounting panel.

Protection against short circuit

Protection against short circuit

The system instantly detects a short circuit on the line and notifies the security company and the users. And when the problem is fixed, there is no need to replace the fuses: the system will restore operation automatically.

Data encryption

Data encryption

All data the system stores and transmits is protected by a block cipher with a dynamic key. Encryption makes it extremely difficult to reprogram the detector, replace or steal the data.

Data-rich notifications

Data-rich notifications

The Ajax system instantly notifies about alarms and events with informative notifications: security companies and users know exactly which device triggered, when and where it happened.

Data backup in case of connection loss

Data backup in case of connection loss

When the Fibra line breaks during the sabotage attempts, the detector continues to operate from a built-in battery. Alarms with photo verifications will be stored in the detector's buffer memory. Once the connection with the hub gets restored, all data is sent to Ajax apps and CMS.

Device authentication against spoofing

Device authentication against spoofing

The hub checks the device's unique parameters for authentication during each communication session. If any parameter fails the check, the hub ignores device commands.

Regular polling

Regular polling

The device regularly exchanges data with the hub. The system controls each device state and reports if there is a malfunction or connection loss.

PRO is king

The myth about wired systems being difficult to install is busted. Ajax minimized an expensive, long, and dusty experience for PROs by developing an ultimate set of tools to make the process easy and flexible, from project design to client support and system maintenance. There is no need to disassemble the device for installation. Intuitive Ajax apps help quickly make the device a part of the system, and each device can always be reconfigured remotely without site visits. No need for programmers — everything is available out-of-box.
