AJAX MotionCam PhOD - Wireless motion detector taking photos by alarm and on demand
Intellect against false alarms
We have combined special optics with a software filter for false alarms in motion detectors. Along with a professional installation, it gives high detection accuracy.
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.
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 analyzes 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 analyzed thousands of IR sensor triggerings 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.
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.
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.
Loved ones and valuables are under care
In case of any doubts, the system users can check what is happening on the spot. There is no need to wait for an alarm. Just open the app, select the detector, and see the situation at home in seconds.
Less false calls for fire brigades
According to statistics, almost half of fire alarms are false. Visual verification of fire alarms has already become a worldwide practice. MotionCam automatically takes the photos of the premice when the FireProtect or FireProtect Plus detectors trigger. The fire brigade monitoring station can receive the photos and assess the situation in seconds.
Up to 70% of false alarms happen when disarming the security system. With MotionCam, system users and monitoring company operators can verify in seconds whether an alarm is real and respond accordingly.
Both system users and a rapid response team need to clearly understand what happens on the scene in case of an alarm. MotionCam shows how many intruders are armed and whether they are still in the room. This will help a security company patrol prepare, and the users avoid danger.
Evidence in a smartphone
A series of animated photos provide the law enforcers with the description of intruders, no time wasted. MotionCam will capture them even in complete darkness, thanks to the IR backlight. The chances of catching burglars in the act increase.
