Ajax Wireless Outdoor Beams - The first line of Defense for home and business


The Ajax Wireless Outdoor Beams can accurately distinguish human movement from other types of motion, such as animals or leaves.

This innovative security device uses a unique two-step algorithm for signal analysis, called LISA, to significantly reduce false alarms and increase the accuracy of the detector in detecting human movement.

The Ajax MotionProtect Outdoor Detector uses two PIR sensors to detect motion. The LISA algorithm analyzes signals from these sensors to determine whether human movement is present. The first step of the algorithm analyzes the amplitude and duration of the signal, while the second step uses correlation analysis to determine whether the signal is caused by a human movement or by other types of motion.

This two-step process, combined with the use of two sensors, helps to significantly reduce false alarms and increase the accuracy of the detector differencing between what is a false trigger and what is an actual alarm trigger.

One of the key advantages of the Ajax MotionProtect Outdoor Detector is that it can function more effectively in the diverse and dynamic environment of outdoor settings, where there is constant motion and activity.

 What angle is Ajax MotionProtect outdoor?

In addition to its advanced signal analysis capabilities, the Ajax MotionProtect Outdoor Detector has a number of other features that make it an excellent choice for outdoor security. It has a detection angle of 90° and a motion detection distance that can be adjusted from 3-15 meters.

It also has pet immunity up to a height of 80 cm, which means that it won't be triggered by small pets. Its battery life can last up to five years, and it has a protection class of IP55, which means it's protected against dust and water.

MotionProtect Outdoor can transmit the following events:

  1. Motion alarm.
  2. Masking alarm.
  3. Tamper alarm/recovery.
  4. Loss/recovery of connection between MotionProtect Outdoor and the hub (or radio signal range extender).
  5. Temporary deactivation/activation of MotionProtect Outdoor.

Parameter Meaning
Malfunction Clicking on opens a list of MotionProtect Outdoor malfunctions. The field is displayed only if a malfunction is detected.
Temperature Detector temperature. It is measured on the processor of the detector and changes gradually. Acceptable error between the value in the app and the room temperature — 2°C. The value is updated as soon as the detector identifies a temperature change of at least 2°C. You can configure a scenario by temperature to control automation devices. Learn more.
Jeweller Signal Strength Signal strength between the detector and the hub or the range extender via the Jeweller channel. Recommended value is 2–3 bars. Jeweller is a protocol for transmitting MotionProtect Outdoor events and alarms. Learn more.
Connection via Jeweller Connection status on the Jeweller channel between the detector and the hub or the range extender: Online — the detector is connected to the hub/range extender. Offline — the detector is not connected to the hub/range extender. Check the detector connection.
Battery Сharge The battery charge level of the device: OK, Battery low. When the batteries are low, the Ajax apps and the security company receive appropriate notifications. After sending a low battery notification, the detector can work for up to 2 months. How the battery charge is displayed. Battery life calculator.
Lid The status of the detector tamper that responds to detachment or opening of the device enclosure: Open — the detector was removed from the SmartBracket mounting panel, or the integrity of its enclosure was compromised. Check the mounting of the detector. Closed — the detector is installed on the SmartBracket mounting panel. The integrity of the device enclosure and the mounting panel is not compromised. Normal state. Learn more.
Delay When Entering, sec Delay time when entering: 5 to 120 seconds. Delay when entering (alarm activation delay) is the time the user has to disarm the security system after entering the secured area. Learn more.
Delay When Leaving, sec Delay time when leaving: 5 to 120 seconds. Delay when leaving (arming delay) is the time the user has to leave the secured area after arming. Learn more.
Night Mode Delay When Entering, sec Delay time when entering in Night Mode: 5 to 120 seconds. Delay when entering (alarm activation delay) is the time the user has to disarm the security system after entering the secured area. Learn more.
Night Mode Delay When Leaving, sec Delay when leaving in Night Mode: 5 to 120 seconds. Delay when leaving (arming delay) is the time the user has to leave the secured area after arming. Learn more.
External Power External power status: Connected — the external power is connected to the detector. Disconnected — the external power is disconnected or not connected.
Sensitivity Sensitivity level of the motion detector: Low, Normal, High. The sensitivity is selected based on the results of the detection zone test.
Anti-masking Detector masking state: Alarm — masking is detected. Check the state of the detector. Enabled — the anti-masking system is enabled. Masking is not detected. Disabled — the anti-masking system is disabled. Masking will not be detected. Learn more.
Always Active When this option is enabled, the detector is always armed. In this mode, the detector responds to movement and raises alarms regardless of the system security mode. Learn more.

Protection against masking

ajax motionprotect outdoor

Masking is an attempt to block the view of the detector by painting over it, covering it, placing an obstacle in front of the detector’s lens, or otherwise.

MotionProtect Outdoor detects the following types of masking:

  • Obstacle in front of the detector lens at a distance of up to 20 cm (the maximum distance depends on the type of material).
  • Obstacle in front of any lens at a distance of up to 10 cm.
  • Painting over any of the lenses.
  • Sticking over the front part of the detector with an opaque material.
