Intellect against false alarms

Combined special optics with a software filter for false alarms in motion detectors along with a professional installation, it gives high detection accuracy.

    • The detector instantly captures human motion in the protected area
    • The specially designed Fresnel lens provides the most informative thermal diagram
    • SmartDetect software algorithm filters out false alarms

Special lens

The pattern of the Fresnel lens sections is designed so that the diagrams of the infrared radiation of a human, an animal, and thermal noise have significant differences. Large sections of the lens capture radiation at the level of the head and torso of an adult. Smaller sections make the diagram more detailed. The MotionCam lens provides the detector with accurate information about the thermal object in the detection zone and the nature of its movement.

Professional installation

Installing the MotionCam in the right spot, at the optimum height, and perpendicular to the likely intrusion path ensures an informative thermal diagram. It significantly improves detection accuracy. Professional installation also makes the pet immunity feature more effective.

Filter for thermal interferences

The detector instantly analyses the thermal diagram from the sensor: the infrared radiation intensity, the heat spot size, the motion speed, the time spent in the detection zone, and other parameters.

Ajax engineers have analysed thousands of IR sensor triggering’s caused by humans, animals, and thermal interference and developed SmartDetect. The software algorithm finds false alarm markers instantly and with high accuracy. As a result, the detector accurately responds to a human and does not bother the user with false alarms.

    • Heat spot size
    • Speed of movement
    • Infrared radiation intensity


Temperature compensation

Temperature compensation is a software mechanism keeping the thermal diagram contrast even if the ambient temperature is close to the temperature of the human body.

With each ambient temperature measurement, the detector corrects the PIR sensor data according to the coefficient table stored in its memory. The detector is effective over the entire operating temperature range.

Privacy as a top priority

MotionCam is designed to control security, not privacy. Photos are protected from prying eyes at the detector, system and software levels.

    • Strict permission distribution
    • Encryption and GDPR
    • Detailed event log 

Unique wireless technologies

MotionCam Jeweller detector uses two radio protocols simultaneously: Jeweller to inform about alarms and Wings to transmit photos. Jeweller provides instant alarm delivery while Wings delivers the first photo from the scene in just 9 seconds, even with communication breakdowns and a weak signal. The two-way encrypted communication range with the hub is up to 1,700 meters, so the detector can be easily installed where it will be the most effective.

Sensitivity level

With the sensitivity setting, the detector adapts to the conditions of a particular room, considering possible thermal interference or pets. Changing the sensitivity setting affects the markers by which false alarms are filtered.

With low sensitivity, the detector is less likely to respond even to an active pet. And with high sensitivity, it will raise the alarm in case of any motion in the detection zone.

Sensitivity is configured in the Ajax app both on-site and remotely.

Peace of mind on demand

MotionCam (PhOD) needs only seconds to show the actual situation on the scene and dispel the user’s doubts in case of an alarm. It takes a click in the Ajax app to take an on-demand photo. Also, the detector will automatically take a series of photos if it captures motion or when FireProtect or FireProtect Plus fire detector triggers.

Complex anti-sabotage

  • Communication loss detection in 36 seconds
  • Notification of dismantling
  • Device authentication against fraud
  • Data protection with encryption and hopping
  • Notifying about events in 0.15 seconds
  • Jamming detection in 30 seconds
  • Intuitive installation and connection

Intuitive installation and connection

Add the MotionCam detector to the Ajax security system with a few taps. Open the Ajax app, scan the QR code and assign the detector to the room. There is no need to disassemble the detector enclosure. SmartBracket mounting panel allows you to securely install the detector on a flat surface or in a corner.
