Ajax Systems has held its second Special Event, an online presentation of new devices and software developments. This time, the company’s CEO, CMO and international sales team leaders presented new additions to the outdoor detector lineup, a flagship keypad, new software and online tools for professionals who work with Ajax security systems daily.
Users and partners from over 120 countries were invited to attend the presentation. The broadcast was held in 14 languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Ukrainian, Russian, Turkish, Dutch, Arabic, Portuguese, Polish, Romanian and Greek.
Here’s a recap of new products and software that were revealed during the presentation.
To provide users with fast and accurate early intrusion detection, DualCurtain Outdoor was developed, a wireless outdoor motion detector that guards a property perimeter. The device combines two curtain motion detectors directed in opposite directions. DualCurtain Outdoor has an unprecedented detection range of 30 metres and features Ajax patented technologies.

In order to make security system management as simple as possible, a contactless identification function was integrated into a keypad. The new wireless KeyPad Plus supports encrypted access devices: Ajax Pass and its compact version Tag. To change the security mode, a user just needs to present an access device to KeyPad Plus. These devices are equipped with an original DESFire chip. It is a best-in-class contactless identification technology used by transport systems in European capitals and NASA access systems.
The combination of KeyPad Plus and Ajax Pass or Tag provides users with encrypted contactless identification and minimises false alarms caused by errors when entering a passcode.
Photo verification becomes a new norm in the security industry. This practical way of countering false alarms helps security companies and police significantly reduce unnecessary patrol dispatches. The new wireless outdoor motion detector with a camera — MotionCam Outdoor — recognises a threat instantly and sends an animated series of photos in any weather, day or night.
MotionCam Outdoor takes photo verification to a dramatic new level. The best optics with HDR camera and IR backlight produces clear and sharp images. That helps a monitoring station operator to respond correctly in any circumstances.

To help security professionals plan service visits to clients for years to come, a battery life calculator was released for Ajax devices. It provides installers with an estimate of how long the pre-installed batteries will work under specified parameters and when it is time to replace them.
To assist installers in work and evaluate the reliability of radio communications considering the parameters of a premise, Ajax Systems also released a guide on Jeweller, the proprietary Ajax radio communication technology. The guide consists of a handbook explaining the impact of materials on the Jeweller range and the calculator assessing its reliability.
Ajax software has evolved along with the needs of the security industry. The new PRO Desktop 3.0 has combined tools for connecting, maintaining and monitoring Ajax security systems in one PC app. Professionals will appreciate seamless connection and remote configuration of devices, flexible role arrangement and detailed event logs for employee control, built-in photo verification of alarms and support for the mobile panic button.
Ajax System is now operating in the US, Canada, Australia, Latin America and Southeast Asia markets. With FCC and IC certificates being received, Ajax will now be present wherever the 915 MHz frequency band is used. In addition, the Ajax product line has completed trials for India. From now on, partners can join the distribution and integration of Ajax products into new markets.
“We adapted the hardware, re-invented radio technologies, expanded the software’s capabilities at all levels and conducted testing. Entering new markets results from a lot of work done by a team of 300 Ajax developers. People from all over the world join our team every day. We see our future in diversity. We are looking for people in France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Sweden, Norway. And soon there will be vacancies in several other countries,” saidAleksandr Konotopskyi, Ajax Systems CEO.
Recently, Ajax Systems opened two new R&D centres in Ukraine and one more plant, doubling the production capacity. The company entered 25 new markets, formed eight local offices and grew into a multinational team of 1,800 employees. This summer, Ajax will also surpass the mark of a million users.
