Optimizing energy efficiency with Ajax Systems' Dry Contact Relay

In today's rapidly evolving world of smart security systems, Ajax Systems has established itself as a pioneer, offering robust and versatile solutions that go beyond traditional security measures. One of the standout features in their product lineup is the Dry Contact Relay, a component that not only enhances security but also contributes to energy efficiency. In this week's Tech Tuesday, we'll explore how this relay can be integrated into an existing Ajax security system to manage electricity consumption, ensuring that lights and air conditioners are switched off when the alarm is engaged.

What is the Ajax Relay?

The Ajax Relay | low current remote control relay with dry contact is a low-voltage switching device that acts as a bridge between the security system and various electrical appliances. Unlike standard relays, the dry contact relay is designed to handle a wide range of applications, making it incredibly versatile. It can be used to control garage doors, electric locks, gates, lights, and HVAC systems, among other things.

Integration with Ajax Security Systems

Integrating the relay into an Ajax security system is straightforward, thanks to Ajax’s user-friendly ecosystem. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to incorporate this relay into your security setup:

  1. Installation: The Dry Contact Relay is compact and can be installed in junction boxes, electrical cabinets, or directly within the devices it will control. Ensure that it is connected to a stable power source and wired correctly to the appliances you wish to control.
  2. Connecting to the Hub: Using the Ajax mobile app, connect the relay to the Ajax Hub. This is done by scanning the QR code on the relay and following the on-screen instructions. The relay will then be part of your Ajax network and can be controlled via the app.
  3. Configuring Scenarios: One of the most powerful features of the Ajax system is the ability to create automated scenarios. For instance, you can set up a scenario where the Dry Contact Relay switches off the lights and air conditioners whenever the security alarm is engaged. This ensures that unnecessary power consumption is avoided when the premises are unoccupied.

Practical benefits of using the Ajax Relay

• Energy Efficiency

The primary benefit of integrating the relay into your Ajax security system is improved energy efficiency. By ensuring that lights and air conditioners are switched off when the alarm is engaged, you can significantly reduce electricity consumption. This not only lowers utility bills but also contributes to environmental sustainability by reducing your carbon footprint.

• Enhanced Security

In addition to saving energy, the relay enhances overall security. When connected to lighting systems, it can automatically turn lights on or off based on security events, creating the impression of occupancy even when the premises are empty. This can deter potential intruders, adding an extra layer of security.

Convenience and Automation

The ability to automate and control various appliances remotely adds a significant level of convenience. Whether you're managing a residential property or a commercial building, the Ajax Relay | low current remote control relay with dry contact allows for seamless control of electrical devices through the Ajax app. This means you can easily switch off forgotten appliances, monitor energy usage, and adjust settings from anywhere in the world.
