Another advantage of Ajax is a real-time operating system that controls the operation of the central elements and repeaters of the manufacturer's security systems. Named after the artist Kazimir Malevich, whose Black Square painting is based on infinite simplicity, the Malevich operating system is regularly updated with new features for integrators and end users. And thanks to this simplicity, the hub processor, even in the most active tasks, is loaded by a maximum of 20%. Also, this operating system is modular, and standardized APIs are used to interact with elements, which allows you to quickly identify and fix errors, easily add functionality and experiment in order to achieve the best efficiency.
- Where should an ordinary user start who decides to build a security system for their own home?
— Against the backdrop of the diversity of Ajax products, the manufacturer itself offers starter kits. The StarterKit includes wireless motion and opening sensors, a key fob with a panic button and a hub that controls the security system both indoors and outdoors. This equipment is enough to build the first level of protection of the entrance to the premises. As soon as an intruder opens the door, the system will raise an alarm, notifying the user or the security company. And an alarm kit with MotionCam sensors will send photos confirming the intrusion in case of an alarm. StarterKit uses multiple communication channels. Minimum 4G and Ethernet, but there are kits with support for Wi-Fi and two SIM cards, which can have up to four independent communication channels with users and the security console. Any of the starter kits can be supplemented with new devices, such as fire sensors, water leakage and glass break sensors, as well as other automation devices, such as Smart sockets and relays, which free you from routine actions and automate your safety. Already with their help, you can set up scenarios for turning on the lights according to a schedule, closing doors on alarm or opening curtains in low light.
— What can you say about Ajax Systems itself, its policy and relationships with partners?
— Ajax Systems managed to become the largest manufacturer of intrusion protection systems in Europe in a short time. The company's products are already sold in 130 countries, but the company continues to expand into new markets. Today, the company employs about 2,500 people, 600 of whom are R&D engineers. In addition to all the technologies and affordable prices that make Ajax products so popular in the world markets, their important part is design, to which the company's management pays great attention.
Ajax conducts indiscriminate testing of all products before shipping to the customer, for which the R&D department has developed its own equipment. Despite the fact that now the company produces 650 thousand (!) Devices per month, product defects are less than 0.3% against the background of 1.5-2% defects of European and 3-5% of Chinese competitors. The business model of light assets, which this company from Ukraine uses, allows to transfer and deploy production in any country of the world in the shortest possible time. An example of this is a new plant in Turkey, which began operation in October last year and has provided employment for 400 people. By the way, thanks to such a close location of this plant to us, all problematic issues in terms of logistics are automatically excluded. In addition, Ajax is the most award-winning wireless security system in Europe, awarded at prestigious international security exhibitions. All Ajax Systems devices have passed European certification and comply with the requirements of the EN 50131 security system standard, as well as the EN 14604 fire standard. The company was also awarded Grade 2 - the highest degree of reliability for wireless security systems.
Our company introduced Ajax solutions to the Azerbaijani market for the first time in 2017. Later, iTech Group became the first distributor of Ajax Systems in the country, and today we are the most active partner in Azerbaijan, not only in terms of distribution, but also in terms of integration. For example, my responsibilities include promoting products on the market, solving integration issues related to the implementation of Ajax products in Smart Home systems implemented by our company together with other vendors, as well as training partner technical staff and providing them with demonstration equipment. Among the positive aspects of our cooperation with Ajax Systems, I would like to note the large knowledge base that this company offers. In addition to certification courses for engineers and its own Academy, Ajax Systems provides detailed text and video instructions on how to operate the equipment on its website. The company's website also contains calculators for battery life, range of Jeweler technology and power supply for wired Fibra devices, which allows users and partners to quickly and easily calculate the necessary equipment parameters. But the biggest plus, in my opinion, is that Ajax strikes a great balance between security, ease of use, and entry cost. This would be unthinkable without a large professional team.
