Smart wireless intrusion protection for yachts and other large boats

AJAX Systems alarm system
The best solution for securing your yacht

When you buy a yacht, you make a large investment of up to millions of euros. The most modern techniques are used to provide your yacht with all possible conveniences. Building a yacht is a profession in its own right, and that is what the boat manufacturers specialise in. However, what they usually do not specialize in is how to prevent a burglary in a yacht. Burglary protection against possible burglars usually goes no further than a good lock on the door on yachts or other large boats.

Fortunately, there are also manufacturers who develop products that boat manufacturers 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.

We didn’t assume that you wouldn’t be able to pay the costs of installing an alarm system when you bought a yacht, but such a system should be available. We rarely come across empty pipes in a yacht that act as an option for installing a wired alarm system, so it’s certainly an advantage that the AJAX system doesn’t have to use this, as it does its work completely wirelessly.

Because the installation of the AJAX alarm system goes without cables, there is also nothing to adapt to your precious yacht. So whether you install the alarm system yourself or outsource it to someone else, installation will always be easy.

What can the AJAX system do for your yacht?

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 yacht 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. In addition to this 220 volt power supply, another connection is required which ensures that the alarms come in on your smartphone, and that is the Internet. If you do not have a 220 volt power supply, you can also choose a Hub that operates on 12 to 24 volts.

There are several ways to get Internet access on the Hub. If your yacht has a router on board for the internet, it can be connected to it, preferably wired. If there is only Wi-Fi available at the location where you place the Hub, this is also possible if you choose a Hub with Wi-Fi support such as the Hub Plus.

Is there no Internet on board? That’s no problem either, each Hub is equipped with at least 1 SIM card, so you can use any provider to provide the Internet for the Hub. Only a small data bundle is required for the system to function. It is also possible to install a SIM card as an extra backup, in addition to an existing internet connection, for times when the fixed internet fails on your yacht, the SIM card will take care of its tasks.

Where does a complete security system for your yacht 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.

Besides detectors one chooses for sirens, remote controls, and 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 up to 150.

Using MotionCAM eliminates the need for wired installation of separate security cameras. With MotionCAM, you can take photos in any 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.
