AJAX MotionCAM is a motion detector intended for inside your home or business.
The AJAX MotionCAM can be compared to the AJAX MotionProtect in terms of applications, only with an extra built-in camera that shows one or more photos of the cause of the detection within 7 seconds after the first detection.
Taking appropriate action in case of a notification
This makes it easy to determine what action needs to be taken. If you see a burglar in the picture you immediately call the police, but if you see your mother walking in who forgot to turn off the alarm, then this is not necessary, we think….
Because the first picture appears on your phone so soon there is no precious time lost in determining which action should be taken. The photo will be sent simultaneously to all users of the AJAX security system, so all members of the family will be notified at the same time and see the photo at the same time.
The quality of the pictures taken is a maximum of 640×480 pixels, which is more than enough to determine who is present. If detection takes place in dark rooms, the built-in infrared lighting in the AJAX MotionCAM will ensure that a clear picture is sent.
Range from the Hub
The range of the AJAX MotionCAM is 1,700 meters in open field. The ideal mounting height is 2.40 meters, and the standard supplied battery lasts up to 4 years. Of course, all installation supplies are included.
Motion detection range of the MotionCAM
The AJAX MotionCAM can check an area of 12 meters from the sensor for movement at an angle of 90 degrees. If you place the detector in the corner of a room, the entire room will be protected.
The ideal height to mount the MotionCAM is 2.40 meters. At this height the detector is the least sensitive to the possible presence of pets. After all, it is not intended to receive a burglary report if your dog or cat walks through the living room. At this height a dog of maximum 20 kilograms can walk around freely without triggering the alarm. If you mount the AJAX MotionCAM lower than the recommended 2.4 metres high, it will respond more quickly to pets and will also reduce the detection distance of 12 metres.
Registration and Mounting
MotionCam connects to the AJAX security system in a few taps. Open the AJAX app, scan the QR code and assign the detector to one of the rooms.
Mount the detector on a wall without disassembling it. Make sure there are no vases, cabinets or glass objects blocking the angle of view. And you’re done.
Settings of the MotionCAM
This detector, like all others, can be programmed in 3 sensitivity modes. In the least sensitive position it is immune to pets up to 20KG and 50cm in height. Put the sensitivity in the middle or highest position, then the immunity for pets decreases. Your pet will then be noticed more quickly when moving, or only smaller and lighter pets will be able to walk around freely.
The detector, like all AJAX products, runs on batteries and is completely wireless, so it can be placed anywhere without having to lay cables. The service life of the batteries supplied as standard is 4 years under normal use. After this time they are easy to replace for new ones for a few euros. These batteries are always available from stock. How to replace the batteries can be found in the MotionCAM manual.
Designed to respect privacy
MotionCam is designed to control your safety, not your personal life. The motion detector is not able to take pictures on request. The camera is only activated in response to a motion alarm. The data is encrypted during the entire process of transfer and storage. No one analyzes it, not even the AI. You don’t have to live under the constant surveillance of the security cameras to know why the alarm went off.
If you are looking for a detector that deals well with temperature fluctuations such as air conditioners and other heaters or rooms where windows are open while the system is switched on, the AJAX MotionProtect Plus is a good option. In addition to the standard motion detection technology, the AJAX MotionProtect Plus has an additional radar module on board to verify detected movements for correctness. To give an example: Moving curtains caused by an open bedroom window are not detected by the AJAX MotionProtect Plus, but you will miss the built-in camera.
