Early detection, what does that mean?
There are dozens of different brands of burglary and security systems, and they all use the word early detection in their advertisements. But one brand isn’t the other, and with virtually every other intrusion detection system they find a door contact or a vibration sensor on the windows are already part of early detection. But by now we know that this is not early detection.
Why do other brands of alarm systems not offer the same outdoor detectors as AJAX?
The reason is simple. To be able to mount a detector outdoors, the detector must at least be able to cope with all the special circumstances that can occur outdoors. Think of the registration of moving plants, presence of cats and birds, or the weather influences such as rain. Many manufacturers do not have this technique in house.
Another important reason why few manufacturers offer outdoor detection is because the wireless signal does not reach outside. And cables are pulled dozens of meters outside and few people want or are able to dispose of them safely and invisibly.
AJAX’s patented wireless signal called Jeweller is only available on AJAX alarm systems.
Detection of burglary attempts starts with the location where detection takes place
I’m sure we agree that detection outside the home is best. However, not all houses can be secured on all sides with outdoor motion detectors. In the garden at the back of the house it is often not a problem, but at the front it often becomes a lot more difficult. That is why there are high quality detectors for outside the house as well as detectors for use in the house. These detectors only respond to people, not to small dogs or cats under 20KG.
Wireless, but safer than a wired system
Any notification of detection will be forwarded to the AJAX Cloud via the central unit of the alarm system called the Hub. Your own smartphone which is constantly connected to the same Cloud via the downloaded AJAX application will receive a notification within 0.15 seconds, and report what’s going on.
Blocking of the wireless signal, or loss of one of the connections from the Hub or the wireless detectors will be immediately detected by the Cloud, and you will be notified immediately by a notification on your smartphone.
