AJAX Starter kit configurator

Follow the steps below for a complete security package entirely to your wishes!

Some people find it difficult to put together their own alarm system. That’s why on this page we tell you exactly which products you need at least, and which detectors are suitable for which location.
 
You can also directly add the products to your shopping basket at each step. At the end of this page your system is complete, and you can proceed to purchase if you wish. We are sure that you have not forgotten anything to fully secure your own home or business.
 
Let’s get started…

AJAX Hub

The basis of the alarm system is the central unit, which in AJAX is called the Hub.
The Hub comes in 4 different versions, but if you want to use products that have been released since April 2021, you need a Hub 2 or Hub 2 Plus.
 
The Hub 1 will not get software updates since April 2021, only security updates.
 
On the product page of the Hub 1 you can find which detectors can still be connected to the Hub 1. If you only need these detectors, the Hub 1 might be the cheapest solution to choose, otherwise we recommend the Hub 2.
 

Difference between the Hub 2 and Hub 2 Plus

A Hub is preferably connected to the internet via an ethernet cable on your router. If you use this option, the Hub 2 is sufficient. If you can only connect the Hub to the internet via a sim card because there is no internet at home, then it might be wise to choose the Hub 2 Plus because it supports 2G as well as 3G and 4G.
 
So far the main differences between the Hubs.
 
Now choose which Hub you like best, and add it to your basket by clicking on “add”. Don’t forget to select the desired colour.

Sirens

Now that we have chosen the right Hub, it is time to decide how to chase away the burglar. By default, a burglar alarm is sent to your mobile phone, but this does not scare away the burglar if you are not at home. Incidentally, anyone in the family can receive a notification if you wish.
 
The best way to chase away burglars is to draw the attention of the surroundings, and that’s best done with light and especially sound. That’s why Ajax has two different sirens, the HomeSiren for indoors and a StreetSiren that can be mounted both indoors and outdoors.
 
The volume is adjustable in 3 settings for both, with the maximum volume for the indoor siren being 105db, and 113db for the outdoor siren.
 
Now choose which siren is most suitable for you, and add it to your shopping basket by clicking on “add”. Do not forget to select the desired colour and quantity.

Control

After choosing the siren, we determine how you want to operate the alarm system.
There are 3 ways to arm and disarm the alarm system:
 
  • With your own smartphone via the AJAX App, from anywhere in the world
  • With AJAX SpaceControl, the remote control with 1200 meters range
  • With AJAX KeyPad, the indoor code control panel
  • With AJAX KeyPad plus, the control panel with built-in (RFID) tag reader.
If you choose the KeyPad Plus, you can disable the system using Tag or Pass. Simply hold one of these products in front of the reader and the system is turned off. No more remembering codes. The Tag is handy for attaching to a bunch of keys, and the Pass is suitable as a card for your wallet.
 
With KeyPad Plus, a user can also use his smartphone with built-in RFID to deactivate the system. Almost every modern smartphone has this chip.
 
Now choose how you want to operate the system, and add them in the desired colour and quantity to your shopping basket by clicking on “add”. If you plan to use outside detection, choose the SpaceControl and not a KeyPad. With outside detection you need to switch off the system before entering the house, and KeyPads are always placed inside the house.

What do you want to protect

Now is the time to determine where you want to detect intruders. Only in the house, or already outside, in your garden.
 
In the case of a detached house with an enclosed garden, we advise you to mainly use outside detection. After all, the sooner you know that someone has wrong thoughts, the better.
 
If you want to secure a detached house such as a terraced house, then often only indoor detection is possible, or a combination of indoor detection with a single outdoor detector for the enclosed garden.
 
Don’t forget that a front door where postmen and postwomen can also go can never be fitted with an outside detector, so one should always place one inside.


Indoor detection

To determine how many detectors you need inside, it’s a matter of adding up the spaces you want to secure.
 
For inside you can choose from the following motion detectors:
  • MotionProtect: 12 metres range, 90 degrees viewing angle
  • MotionProtect Plus: 12 metre range, 90 degree viewing angle, with built-in radar sensor to cope with fireplaces and open windows during an alarm. In rooms where air conditioning is on when the alarm is on, choose this version.
  • CombiProtect: 12 metre range, 90 degree viewing angle, with built-in microphone that detects glass ringing
  • MotionProtect Curtain: 10 metre range, 6 degree viewing angle, to secure very specific areas. For example, along windows, so that you can still walk around freely in the living room yourself, and detection only takes place close to the windows.
  • MotionCAM: 12 meters range, 90 degrees viewing angle, with built-in photo camera that sends multiple photos to your mobile phone within 9 seconds after motion detection so you know who or what is sounding the alarm.
Now choose which motion detectors you want to have inside. Choose the model, colour and number, and add them to your shopping basket by clicking “add”.

In addition to motion detectors, door contacts are also available. These can be mounted on windows and/or doors. If a motion detector has already been selected in the room in question, an additional door detector is no longer necessary.
 
Two different door contacts are available:
  • DoorProtect: Detects only the opening and closing process
  • DoorProtect Plus: Detects vibrations and tilts as an additional feature
Now choose whether and which door contacts you want to have inside. Select the colour and number, and add them to your shopping basket by clicking on “add”.

Smoke detectors

Before we choose any outdoor motion detectors, we first determine whether we also want to purchase smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors for the home. A fire is not very common, but if it occurs it is often immediately life-threatening. The advice is to install one smoke detector in each room and on locations with a stove / central heating a combination with carbon monoxide detection.
 
AJAX has both standard and combined smoke detectors available.
  • FireProtect: Detects smoke and rapid temperature rises
  • FireProtect Plus: Also detects CO / carbon monoxide
Now choose whether and how many smoke detectors you want. Choose the model, colour and number, and add them to your basket by clicking “add”.

Panic buttons

For seniors, children and people who like to be able to call for help at the push of a button, the Button is available. A wireless panic button that can quickly notify people of a request for help. In addition to receiving a notification on all connected phones, it is also possible to activate the connected sirens as soon as the button is pressed, in order to also get the attention of the surroundings.
 
To reduce the chance of accidentally pressing the button, you can choose the DoubleButton. With this button you have to press both buttons simultaneously before an emergency message is sent. This way, the chance of accidentally pressing the button is excluded.
 
Please note, there is a difference in the possibilities of both buttons. With the normal 1-button button, besides sending an emergency message, you can also choose to use this button exclusively as a switch, for instance to switch a relay to open an electric gate, or to switch an electrical device via AJAX Socket.
 
This is not possible with the DoubleButton. The DoubleButton is only meant to signal an emergency, and is therefore not suitable for switching equipment or gates.
 
Both buttons have a wireless range of 1200 metres from the AJAX Hub (in open field), so they can also be used in the garden and close to the house.
 
The button can be mounted directly to a wall with the included tape, or it can be placed somewhere loose. If desired, the button can also be placed in a ButtonHolder, so that you can both use it in a fixed position and take it along in the garden, for example.
 
Now make a choice whether you want a panic button. Select the colour and number and add it to your shopping cart by clicking on “add”.

These are the products for inside the house / company.

Outdoor detectors

Now to the outdoor products, the outdoor motion detectors. This is where the power of AJAX really comes into play, because with a wireless range of 2,000 metres you can mount these detectors anywhere.
 
If you already detect unwanted visitors in your garden, a real burglary is prevented. So if your home allows it, always try to opt for outside detection as well. Outdoor motion detectors only respond to people, not to dogs, cats, birds, blowing trees, or other plants.

Outdoor detection demonstration video

 
Watch how easy it is to connect the detectors via smartphone and how easy it is to install them.
 

Thanks to the early detection of potential burglars outside the house, real burglaries are prevented!

We have outdoor detectors from both the AJAX and Optex brands in our assortment. The Optex detectors also work perfectly together thanks to the built-in AJAX Transmitter. We will first describe the AJAX outdoor detectors and then the Optex outdoor detector.

AJAX outdoor detectors

AJAX currently has 3 outdoor detectors in its product range. We will discuss them one by one.
 
The AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor detector can secure an area of up to 15 meters at a 90-degree angle. This is approximately 175 square meters. If you place the detector in a corner it can protect an area of about 13×13 meters. The AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor should always be mounted at a height between 80cm and 130cm.
 
For a detached house this means that you usually need 4 of these detectors.
 
Depending on the type of house, you can choose another type of outdoor detector, from the brand Optex, which can be mounted at a different height, or with a different detection angle. We will tell you more about that in a moment.
 
There is no colour choice for the MotionProtect Outdoor. It is always chosen in white because of the sun’s heat. A black colour would get too hot in the sun and have a negative effect on the detection quality.
 
To further protect the detector from both sun and rain, the AJAX Hood is available. This is an extra protection cap that you simply slide on the detector with pre-installed tape to prevent rain from falling directly on the sensor.
 
The advantage of this is that the anti-mask function can do its job better. This detector can “see” when something or someone is blocking the image, and this message can then be given incorrectly during a rainstorm, if no Hood is used.
 
The AJAX MotionCAM Outdoor is almost identical to the MotionProtect Outdoor, but with a built-in photo camera, so you can immediately see one or more photos of the detected movement. This way you know what action to take in case of an alarm, because you can see immediately who is in your garden.
 
The AJAX DualCurtain Outdoor is, as you can see on the video above, meant to secure an area close to the house. You create a kind of curtain around the house. As soon as someone crosses the line of this curtain, an alarm will be triggered. This detector is ideal for securing doors or windows from the outside. The detection distance is adjustable up to a maximum of 15 metres per side. With one detector you can protect a side of 30 metres.
 
Now choose if and how many AJAX outdoor detectors you want. Choose the number and add it to your shopping cart by clicking “add”.

Optex outdoor detectors

As we already mentioned, also Optex outdoor detectors can be integrated in the AJAX system.
 
The only reason to choose an Optex detector in the AJAX system is if it has something to offer that AJAX currently does not. There is one situation we can think of when we would choose a certain type of Optex detector, and that is when the detector cannot be mounted outside at a height of 80 to 130 cm. For example, a garden set, low vegetation or anything else that could block the detector’s view at this height.
 
Optex has the QXI-RDT-X5 in its assortment, similar to the AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor, but with the added advantage that the mounting height can be both low and high. The mounting height is variable between 80~120cm and between 220~270cm.
 
This detector can also be mounted at a height of 2.7 metres and offers 40 detection zones. If you choose this mounting height, the detector can often look much better over objects in the garden.
 
In addition, this Optex offers a 120-degree detection angle (instead of 90) and has, in addition to the PIR sensor, an extra built-in radar sensor to verify movement.
 
This Optex QXI-RDT-X5 can be mounted directly on a flat wall as well as on a wall or ceiling bracket. With such brackets it is possible to adjust the angle in which you mount the detector to achieve the best detection area. 
 
Now choose if and how many Optex outdoor detectors you want. Choose the quantity and add it to your basket by clicking on “add”.

So much for the outdoor detectors. We have now finished determining which detectors we want to have both inside and outside to detect burglaries.

Other AJAX products

Besides burglary and fire detection, AJAX also has a few other products that help prevent problems or are just convenient. We describe them as follows:
  • Socket: Placed into an existing wall socket, it automatically turns on or off the connected device in time or an alarm.
  • WallSwitch: Same as Socket, except that it is mounted behind the wall socket, out of sight.
  • Relay: For operating electric gates and doors
  • LeaksProtect: Detects water, useful for boiler or washing machine
  • 12-volt power supply: Only buy it if you want to install the alarm in a motorhome or caravan. By default, the Hub already has a backup battery in case of power failure at home. Do not buy this product if you have 220 volts available.
  • GlassProtect: Indoor detector that detects glass breakage. Actually, it could be listed among the indoor detectors, but we think the CombiProtect, a combination of motion detection and glass shattering, is a better choice. That’s why this product gets a last mention
  • Transmitter: Allows you to integrate detectors from other brands into the AJAX system.
Now choose if and how many of the above products you want. Choose the quantity and if available the colour and add it to your shopping basket by clicking on “add”.

Burglary verification with cameras

Burglary verification can be done with cameras. Therefore, we now mention here the easiest way to check whether someone is actually present in your garden or home.
 
Nobody wants to install cables or electricity to a certain location in your house or far away in the back of your garden. Manufacturers have found a solution in the form of fully wireless cameras. These cameras are very easy to install anywhere.
 
There are several brands of wireless cameras. The recorded images can be stored locally on an SD card or centrally in the house on a hard disk. The possibilities vary from brand to brand. Currently, we recommend the camera below in combination with AJAX.
 
We would like to point out that because many people think that a camera system works together with an alarm system, this is not the case. A camera system always works separately from an alarm system.
 
A camera system is meant to let you watch live to the location where you receive an alarm notification, so you know what action to take.
 
A camera never sounds the siren of the alarm system and therefore does not scare away burglars! Nor can a camera be seen as a replacement for a motion detector.
