The best alarm system to secure your motorhome
When buying a motorhome, you make a large investment of perhaps tens of thousands of euros. The most modern techniques are used to provide your mobile home with all possible conveniences. Building a motorhome is a profession in itself, and that’s what the motorhome manufacturers are specialized in. However, what they usually do not delve into is how to prevent a burglary in a motorhome. Burglary protection against possible burglars usually goes no further than a lock on the door.
Fortunately, there are also manufacturers who develop products that Camper manufacturers, on the other hand, do not master. AJAX Systems is one such manufacturer that specializes in developing security products that everyone can understand, and even install.
The ease of installation is mainly determined by the fact that it is a completely wireless system, with a gigantic range. In addition, being able to fully install and operate it via your own smartphone also contributes to this.
Because installing the AJAX alarm system is cable-free, there’s no need to adapt anything to your precious Camper. So whether you install the alarm system yourself or outsource it to someone else, the installation will always be easy.
What can the AJAX system do for your motorhome?
AJAX is an intelligent intrusion security system that alerts you immediately in the event of unwanted visits. Not only does this happen with a notification on your smartphone, but AJAX will also immediately show you several photos of the cause of the notification. All this within 7 to 9 seconds after the detected motion detection. In this way, you will immediately know who is in your Camper 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 deter 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 it’s really easy to mount the AJAX MotionCAM anywhere.
The system’s central unit
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. You can read about the differences between the available versions 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. Especially for motorhomes, it is possible to choose a Hub that operates on 12 to 24 volts.
There are several possibilities to get internet on the Hub. The simplest is to insert a SIM card from any provider. Only a small data bundle is necessary for the system to function. All providers in Europe offer worldwide coverage, and Internet within Europe is standard in the bundle under the same conditions as in the Netherlands. So if you drive your motorhome across the border, it’s no problem to secure your motorhome outside the Netherlands and receive all notifications directly on your mobile.
What does a complete security system for your Motorhome 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, one chooses sirens, remote controls, and possibly keypads for operating the system. Of course you can also operate the system at all times with your own smartphone.
Because of the ease of installation that AJAX offers, we strongly recommend the use of AJAX MotionCAM, the motion detector with built-in photo camera, in combination with the latest Hub 2. Each Hub can wirelessly pair up to 100 detectors, and the Plus versions even 150. In a relatively small space such as a Camper, you will understand that the ability to pair up to 100 detectors is more than enough. A Hub Plus for 150 detectors is therefore useless.
By using the MotionCAM, the wired installation of separate security cameras is no longer necessary. With MotionCAM, you can take photos at any desired location, without wires.
2,000 metres range
Almost all detectors have a large wireless range, which they owe to the wireless signal called Jeweller. 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 here.
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.

You already know everything?
No advice needed, because you are already convinced how easy it is to install the system by yourself? Then you can compile your own system directly or choose one of the many starter packages. Don’t worry if the starter pack of your choice is not listed. You can put together your own system as described on our information pages at no extra cost.
It is important, however, that when ordering / compiling the system for a motorhome, you always indicate that the Hub, or the central unit on 12~24 volts should be able to operate. Standard the Hub is only suitable for 220 Volt, and in order to be able to work on the lower DC voltage an adjustment in the central unit is required, which we will perform for you.
With AJAX you secure different objects and parcels of land
Not a motorhome but something else to secure? It’s possible.
