Motion detector with a photo camera to verify alarms

More than a photo. Faster than a video.  

With MotionCam, you’ll know about the actual situation at home even before the burglars understand that they’re busted. An animated series of photos follows the instant motion detection alarm for an accurate situation appraisal. 

  1. Motion detected
  2. Alarm raised
  3. Situation captured

MotionCam detector requires Hub 2 for operation

Prevents unnecessary disturbance 

A nanny came back from the store and forgot to disarm the security system. The alarm went off, but the parents were calm. MotionCam has made a series of pictures to reveal the cause. 

Spots the hidden threats

The alarm went off at the office. The Ajax security system has sent the photos from the MotionCam detectors to the staff. Be careful! The criminals have guns.

Looks after the house at night

The burglars broke in at night. Thanks to the IR backlight, their faces were apparent on the MotionCam pictures. The police patrol caught the burglars in the act. 

Engineered to respect privacy

MotionCam is designed to control your security, not your personal life. The motion detector is unable to take pictures by request. The camera activates only in response to a motion detection alarm. The data is encrypted throughout the processes of transmission and storage. No one analyzes it, even the AI. You won’t need to live under the constant supervision of the security cameras to know why the alarm went off.

  • Photo capture only when alarmed
  • All pictures are encrypted
  • We don’t see your photos      

Dispels any suspicions

MotionCam ignores pets (up to 50 cm in height) using the SmartDetect algorithm. But if an especially curious pet manages to set off the alarm, the following photo report will confirm that the house is safe. 

Unique communication technologies

MotionCam simultaneously uses two specialized radio protocols: Jeweller for sending instantaneous alarms and Wings for rapid image delivery. You’ll receive the first snapshot of the event within 9 seconds from the motion detection. As usual, the alarm notification will arrive in a split of a second, even if the signal is unstable.

You can set up MotionCam at a distance of up to 1700 meters from the hub to establish visual control of the most critical areas. The new detector features a record-breaking operating efficiency with up to 4 years of battery life.

  • Two-way communication channel at a distance of up to 1700 m
  • First photo delivered in under 9 sec
  • Up to 4 years of operation on the pre-installed batteries

Intuitive to pair and install

MotionCam connects to the Ajax security system in a few taps. Open the Ajax app, scan the QR code, and assign the detector to one of the rooms.

Mount the detector on a wall without disassembling. Make sure that no vases, wardrobes, or glass objects are blocking its view angle. You’re all set!

  • Easy to pair with a QR-code
  • Fast mounting with a SmartBracket
  • Mobile app to adjust, test, and control  
  • Transmits a photo in under 9 sec
  • Sees in the dark
  • Operates up to 4 years on the pre-installed batteries
  • Operates on a distance of up to 1700m from the hub
