👮 How to Connect and Configure Ajax StarterKit Security and 🛡️ Fire Alarm System  🏠


Hello everybody! In this video, I’m going to show you how
to connect and configure the AJAX security system. We’ll find out how to install a security
alarm system in your house, office or any other premise, how to configure it and connect
all kinds of detectors. Let’s begin. The Ajax security alarm is a hardware and
software security complex built around its central element, AJAX Hub, which manages the
operation of a set of detectors – motion detector, opening detector, smoke detector and many
others. When any of the detectors is triggered, your
smartphone will receive an alarm notification immediately to warn you of a potentially dangerous
situation, and it enables you to respond appropriately: turn electricity, gas or water supply on or
off, activate the siren, call the police, a security agency or other emergency services. All right, let’s start with examining the
contents of the security alarm kit. Today I have the so-called Ajax StarterKit
(or HubKit) in white color. This is what the kit includes:
 Ajax Hub – the central unit that coordinates the work of all connected devices;
 Motion detector – Ajax MotionProtect;  A versatile opening detector for doors
or windows – Ajax DoorProtect;  And a special fob to manage the entire
security system – Ajax Space Control. In addition, we also have:
 A fire and smoke detector – FireProtect;  A flooding detector – LeaksProtect;
 And a wireless indoor siren – HomeSiren;  And finally, a very cool rotating 4-MPX
Wi-Fi camera, Dahua A46. The last four gadgets are not included into
the starter kit but you can buy them additionally and connect to the hub. Let’s find out how to use all these items,
how to integrate them into one system and configure each element. Let’s begin with the StarterKit. The main element of the package is the Hub. It will manage all the sensors, and this is
where you plug the Internet cable. Unbox it. Use the cables that come supplied with the
unit to connect it to the wall socket and the Internet. On the bottom panel of the hub, you can see
the lid that covers all connectors and can be used as a mounting bracket. Open the lid. You can see two connectors – one for the Internet
cable, and the other for the power cable. Plug the power cable into the wall socket,
And the Internet cable – into the Ethernet port of your router or an Ethernet wall outlet
if you have one. To turn the hub on, press and hold the power
button. Wait until it lights up. When it connects to the Internet, the light
will turn into green. That’s all, the hub is connected. Now in order to manage the security alarm
system, you need to install a special app from the system’s manufacturer to your smartphone
– Ajax Security System. It’s available for both Android and iOS
devices. Install it and create an account. This is a standard procedure, nothing unusual. Give your name, email, phone number and password. Six-digit verification codes will be sent
to your email and smartphone. As I have already created an account, I will
just log in. As soon as you do it, Ajax Security System
will suggest adding a Hub because the system cannot work without it. Tap “Add Hub.” You can choose between taking a step-by-step
tutorial or doing everything manually. Select any variant. I go for the wizard. Follow the tutorial directions. Enable the hub and wait until the Ajax logo
turns light-green. To register a hub, give it a name and enter
the registration code. You can use any name you like. For example: Ajax or Hub. The hub code is printed on the bottom panel
of the unit, under the QR code. However, you can scan the QR code instead
of typing it. Just tap the QR code icon and the scanner
appears to get the job done. After that, tap “Add Hub.” That’s all, the hub is connected. Next. The app asks you to connect a network cable. I have it connected already. Next. Add room. In my case, let it be “Office.” You can add, for example, Bedroom, Storehouse,
Room 1, 2, 3 and so on. Actually, you can add several rooms. Add device. This is where you can add the devices that
come supplied with the hub, or other gadgets and detectors. But I will add them later, because there are
many devices, and it will be more convenient to do it in a special part of the video. If necessary, you can also add other users
for this hub. I skip the installation manual, because that
is another story. Now I go back to the Dashboard
Where you can see the devices which are already connected. At the moment, there is nothing but the hub. There are also options, Add device and Add
camera. I will use them to add the devices and sensors
I have, one by one. For example, let’s begin with the motion
detector. Tap “Add device.” I will give it a name, Motion. Device ID: I will scan it in the same way
as when connecting the hub. Slide down the back panel of the detector
and scan the QR code from the sticker. Got it. Room. I have one room by now – Office. But you can have several rooms depending on
the number of sensors and rooms you have. Group Let it be Home. Add. Now, enable the detector by moving the switch
in its back panel. That’s all – it’s active and is shown
on the list of devices. Now you can go to the settings of the motion
detector to configure it. In the first window, you can see its current
settings. To change them, tap on the gearwheel icon. You can rename the detector and change the
room where it is installed. Change its sensitivity. Always active: if this option is on, the detector
will be always enabled no matter if the alarm system is enabled or not. Delay when entering and leaving (for example,
when it is attached on the entrance door). Night mode and alert with a siren. There are also various tests for the device,
the user guide and the option to unpair the detector from the hub. When you exit the menu, the program saves
the changes to the settings automatically. I think everyone knows how it works. Mount it on the ceiling in a place where you
need to control motion, and you will receive signals from the detector. In the same way, add the next sensor, the
opening detector for a door or window.  Add device.  Name. Window or door, depending on where you mount
it.  Device ID: scan from the sticker on the
back panel.  Room: Office.  Group: Home.  Add. After that, push the switch on the back panel
to ON position. Now you can see that the opening detector
has been added. Now you can mount it on a door or window. It is based on the principle of locking and
unlocking. That is, the kit includes three elements:
the detector and two magnets. A big one for the door, and the small one
is typically used for windows. Just put the detector and the magnet on different
parts of the door or window and it will send a signal whenever they are opened. That’s easy. Have a look at the connector on the back of
the opening detector. This is a port for an external detector, which
can be placed in certain hard-to-reach places. It is not included into the kit but there
is a special connector for it, so you can buy and use it if necessary. This detector also has its own settings. Tap on it to see their current values. Go to the settings by tapping on the gearwheel
icon. You can change the detector name and the room. You can also enable the external contact. Delay for arming and disarming. Night mode and alert with a siren. There are also various tests for the device,
the user guide and the option to unpair the detector from the hub. This is what happens when the door or window
is opened. Please have a look at the back panel of the
detectors, both the opening detector and the motion detector, and all other detectors we
are going to connect to the Ajax system. On the back lid of every detector (which also
serves as a kind of attachment panel), there is a kind of switch. This switch interacts with the sensor that
is triggered when the detect is removed, the so-called tamper button. When the device is removed from the attachment
panel or put back, the sensor will send A special notification to your smartphone. Let’s move on… The last device in the Ajax StarterKit set
is a special fob to help you manage the security system – Ajax SpaceControl. But it’s not the last device in this video,
As I also have a flooding detector, a fire and smoke detector, and a wireless siren. And probably the most interesting item – the
wireless camera. So don’t hurry to close the tab with this
video, more devices are coming in a minute. So, this fob is used to arm and disarm the
system. You can add it in the same way as any other
detector. Add device. Name. Fob. Device ID. The sticker with the QR code is inside the
box. Scan it. By the way, QR codes for other items are also
duplicated on their boxes. Room. Office. To enable the fob, press and hold the two
buttons – the one with the ring and the one with the “i” letter. That’s it, the fob has been added. Now arm the system by pressing the ring button. Press the broken ring button to disarm it. The button with a broken ring inside of a
complete ring means partial arming or night mode. You can try pressing different buttons to
see how it works. The fob also has its own settings menu. Just have a look – it’s quite simple. When you arm the system, the corresponding
indicator appears in the application, and a notification arrives. The same happens when you disarm the system. Now let’s link some more devices to this
security system; they are not included into the standard HUB Kit, but can be bought separately
and integrated seamlessly with the Ajax Hub. Ajax LeaksProtect, a wireless flood detector. Within a few milliseconds, this detector reacts
to even minimal leaks so that you have enough time to fix the problem. It is very easy to use – just put it in an
area where leaks are possible. You don’t always need to mount or fix it
to a surface in any way. As soon as water gets on one of the four pairs
of contacts on the bottom of the detector, it responds by sending a signal to the Hub. You know already how to link a device to the
Hub. Give a name, scan the QR code. Assign a room. Assign a group. Add. This device has some simple settings as well
as other detectors. Now you can put it on the floor under a washing
machine, a washbasin or a bathtub. This is what happens when some water gets
to a contact. FireProtect, a wireless fire and smoke detector. In other words, a kind of fire alarm. Link it to the hub following the standard
sequence of steps. The settings are simple. Use the SmartBracket kit that comes supplied
with the detector to mount it on the highest point of the ceiling because hot air and smoke
tend to concentrate at the ceiling. Let’s test the detector. Go to the detector settings and select “FireProtect
self-test” Great. Next. HomeSiren wireless siren. You can guess its function from the name. This is the element to add loud sound to our
security system. Add the device. All other steps – as usual. What about the settings? Name, room, alarm volume… alarm duration…
armed mode indication…. beep when arming… beep on delay… everything is clear. Let’s test it. Arm and disarm the device. Test the volume when it responds. Great… Generally speaking, now the security system
is fully operational and ready to use. Just place all the devices and detectors in
the corresponding rooms and in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. However, this review and configuration sequence
for the AJAX security system would be incomplete if I didn’t add the camera. After all, I’ve just got a suitable one
to integrate with the system. This camera is Dahua A46. Why did I choose a Dahua product? First, because this is a really good camera
for money in terms of what it has to offer. Second, Dahua is the only manufacturer whose
cameras can be connected to the AJAX system by quickly scanning the QR code for device
ID. In all other cases, devices are connected
with the help of an RTSP link which is not always convenient for an average user. So, to connect Dahua A46 or any other Dahua
camera to the AJAX system, you need to register it in IMOU – an application provided by the
manufacturer. You can download and install it to any mobile
gadget, from PlayMarket or AppStore. I am not going to show you every step because
we have a special video for this topic – just follow the link in the description to watch
it. After you have registered the camera in IMOU
by following directions in the video, open Ajax Security System and go to the menu Devices. Select Add camera / Dahua. If you need to connect a camera with an RTSP
link, choose the option RTSP Camera. But remember – I have a Dahua camera. The menu for adding the camera is the same
menu as used for adding any other device to the Ajax security system. Assign a name for the camera. Scan the Device ID. User name: admin (the default camera name). And the password which you set when registering
the camera in IMOU app. Specify the room. Add. Ready. Here is the camera I have just added. Click on it to start streaming the video. Unfortunately, the camera settings in Ajax
Security System are limited. In fact, the only function available is seeing
what the camera shows you. The settings to adjust the field of vision,
record videos, save the data, track objects and schedule camera operation are all available
in the IMOU application. However, you can use the app to configure
all the settings once, and then watch the camera streams with Ajax Security System. That’s all for now. As you can see, configuring and setting up
the AJAX security system in your home or office is quite easy. If you have any questions, you can leave a
