Smart wireless alarm from AJAX

The best alarm system for an apartment
Wireless and controllable via GSM

With an apartment you may not immediately think of the need for burglary protection, but unfortunately apartments are also often burgled, and it doesn’t really matter whether you live on the ground floor or on 12 high.

To drastically reduce the risk of burglary, there are many different alarm systems for sale, both wired and wireless. Of course, wireless is the easiest to install and this is also everyone’s preference. However, many wireless alarm systems are based on Wi-Fi, which we do not want because of its poor range.

Fortunately, the manufacturer of the AJAX alarm system has developed a modern proprietary wireless signal called Jeweller, which makes all the negative characteristics of Wi-Fi a thing of the past. This immediately makes the AJAX security system the best fully wireless alarm system you can buy in the year 2020. You can easily install the system yourself via your own smartphone, as well as full control of the system.

What can the AJAX system do for your apartment?

AJAX is an intelligent intrusion security system that warns you immediately in case of unwanted visits. Not only does this happen with a notification on your smartphone, but AJAX can also immediately show you several photos of the cause of the notification. All this within 7 to 9 seconds after the detected motion registration. In this way you are immediately informed who is in your apartment and you can take appropriate action. Of course, in addition to the smartphone, the registration of a burglary can also be accompanied by one or a few loud sirens to scare off the burglar and let him know that he has been spotted.

The AJAX product responsible for motion detection with camera images is the MotionCAM. This product is a motion detector that monitors rooms up to 12 meters away for the presence of people. The detector, like all AJAX detectors, runs on batteries with a lifespan of about 4 to 5 years. After this you simply replace the battery yourself. Mounting the detector is easy thanks to the supplied plugs and screws, and you do not have to worry about the range, this is from the Hub (the name for the central unit of the system) up to 2,000 meters. So you can mount the AJAX MotionCAM really easy anywhere.


Every alarm system needs a central unit, which ensures that everything works together. The switchboard is called AJAX Hub, and is available in different versions. The differences between the available versions can be found on the page where we explain how the system works.

The AJAX Hub is the only component within the alarm system that is wired to power, and preferably connected to your Internet router.

Where does a complete security system for your apartment consist of

Each AJAX system always consists of one Hub, and one or more detectors for intrusion detection, or detection of smoke or water. The complete range of available detectors can be found in the category AJAX products.

In addition to detectors, you can choose sirens, remote controls, and possibly keypads for operating the system. Of course you can also use your own smartphone to operate the system at all times.

When securing an apartment, the motion detector for inside and the door contact are the most commonly chosen products. With the motion detector, you can choose the normal version without a built-in camera, or a version with a camera called MotionCAM.

By using the MotionCAM, the wired installation of separate security cameras is no longer necessary. With MotionCAM you can take photos in any location you want, without wires.

2,000 metres range, more than enough for the alarm system of a flat / apartment

The detectors all have a large wireless range, which they owe to the Jeweller signal. This wireless protocol is unique to AJAX products and was developed by AJAX itself. Jeweller is economical in power consumption, which is good for the battery, consumes little data, and is protected against external intrusion. You can read all the information about this wireless signal with us.

Note: The 2,000 meters is the range between the central AJAX Hub and the wirelessly connected detectors. The range in which you receive free intrusion reports on your mobile phone is of course infinite, provided that your smartphone is equipped with internet and the mobile network signal is sufficient.

Create your own alarm system for your apartment

You can put together your own system as described on our information pages.

In short, it comes down to choosing one Hub, (without MotionCAM, Hub 1 will suffice) and then choosing the desired detectors in the right numbers.

For added security, don’t forget to include an AJAX FireProtect smoke detector. These smoke detectors are extremely reliable and are the best smoke detectors currently available worldwide. Not only do they check for the presence of smoke, they also detect rapid temperature rises that would not occur under normal circumstances. They are not cheap, but they can save lives! (And they are also available with CO detection / carbon monoxide: AJAX FireProtect Plus)
