AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor
Early motion detection is achieved by using this AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor motion detector especially for outdoor installation.
With this detector you are able to detect unwanted visitors before they have forced a window or door and are already with you in the house. In other words, MotionProtect Outdoor prevents actual burglaries because the siren sounds before the burglar can approach your house.
Protects against sabotage such as masking
AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor is a wireless outdoor motion detector with protection against masking and false activation. It is connected to the AJAX security system using the Jeweller security protocol and has a range of up to 1,700 meters in the absence of obstacles. The detector can operate for up to 5 years on pre-installed batteries or from an external power source.
Where to mount this outdoor detector
Mount the MotionProtect Outdoor in your garden or driveway at a height between 80 and 130 centimetres, where 1 meter would be the ideal height. This way you will only receive notifications from real visitors, not from dogs, cats or plants that move in the wind.
When the system is switched on, the detector continuously receives signals from two PIR sensors. When motion is detected, AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor immediately sends the signal to the Hub that triggers the alarm. This signal is indicated by a flashing green LED. The signal is sent to the Hub only when the detector’s two thermal sensors detect identical motion signals.
Combining indoor and outdoor detectors
If you use motion detectors both inside and outside the house, you do not want all detectors to be on if you are in the house yourself. That is why it is wise to create groups that you can operate separately from each other.
For example, at night you can only activate the detectors in the garden and walk around the house without being afraid of activating an indoor detector.
Creating groups and rooms
In the AJAX application it is possible to create both rooms and groups.
Multiple detectors can be connected to one room, but this does not mean that if you choose to create groups, all detectors from one room must also be active in one group. Groups and rooms are independent of each other, a group can also consist of several detectors from different rooms.
If you use outdoor motion detectors such as the AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor, always create a group for personal convenience that only activates these outdoor detectors. This way, you will always be able to choose to receive a notification only if someone is walking in your garden, and you will always be able to walk freely around the house yourself.
The best position of the AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor
To determine the position of the detector, you can do a signal test to determine whether the signal to the Hub is powerful enough for the Hub to register everything. Thanks to Jeweller technology, this shouldn’t be a problem for most and even the largest homes. Through the detection zone test you can easily walk around in the area to be protected. The lamp of the detector is constantly on in the detection test. As soon as a movement is detected it will go out to let you know that you have been seen.
The AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor will not generate an alarm if both sensors do not perceive the same. Animals such as birds, cats and dogs in the garden can never trigger the alarm.
Detection range of MotionProtect Outdoor
With this switch you set the radiation angle of the lower sensor. This sensor determines how far the detector checks for the presence of people.
Depending on the position of the switch on the back of the detector, the detection radius of the lower sensor will be between 3 and 15 meters. The upper sensor always beams straight ahead. In a large garden it is therefore advisable to set the switch to 15 meters.
The MotionProtect Outdoor detector should be mounted at a height between 80 cm and 130 cm. For the best detection we recommend a height of 100 cm. Install the detector so that the upper sensor of the detector runs parallel to the ground. In case of an uneven floor, the mounting height is measured from the highest point of the area controlled by the detector.
The detection pattern then looks like this, an angle of 90 degrees over a distance of up to 15 metres. Of course it is also possible to mount the detector at an angle.
