AJAX SpaceConrol Manual

Follow the steps in the manual and install the AJAX SpaceControl by yourself.

AJAX Button manual

The AJAX SpaceControl is a miniature key fob controlling the security system at a distance up to 1300 meters absent any obstacles. It allows to set the AJAX security system in the armed, night or disarmed mode, as well as switch on an alarm.


As it is the two-way communication, you will know whether the system has received the SpaceControl command.


Operating as part of the AJAX security system, the key fob is connected to the hub by the protected Jeweller protocol.

The fob is set up through the iOS and Android-based mobile application for smartphones or web application.

Functional Elements

1. System arming button

2. System disarming button

3. Night mode button

4. Panic button (activates the alarm)

5. Light indicators

6. The hole for attaching the key fob

Using the SpaceControl

Maximum connection distance between the key fob and the hub – 1,300 meters. This distance is reduced by walls, inserted floors and any objects hindering the signal transmission.


SpaceControl operates only with one security system (Ajaх or third-party system via the integration module). If you connect the key fob to a new security system, it will cease to interact with the previous system. However, the key fob will not be automatically deleted from the list of devices of the hub.

The key fob can:

Arm the system: press the button (O) once

Arm the system in the night mode: press the button (c) once

Disarm the system: press the button (C) once

Switch on an alarm: press the button (!) once

To disconnect the actuated security system (siren), press the disarming mode (C) on the key fob.

SpaceControl operation indication

Depending on the firmware version, the SpaceControl key fob LEDs indicate the status with red or green light.


The key fob reports its status only after any button is pressed.

4 green key fob LEDs blink 6 times:
The key fob is not registered with any security system

Two green LEDs next to the pressed button light up once:
The key fob command has been sent over to the security system


The LEDs next to the pressed button quickly blink green 4 times when a key fob with firmware version 3.16 and lower is used

The central LED lights up red briefly when a key fob with firmware version 3.18 and later is used

The command has not been delivered as the security system is too far away and cannot receive the command


Two LEDs next to the button light up green twice. Then 4 key fob LEDs blink green 6 times
The key fob has been removed from the security system devices

The central LED lights up green for a few seconds:
Linking a key fob to the security system

The central LED lights up green for approximately half a second when a key fob with firmware version 3.18 and later is used:
The system has executed the key fob command

The central LED lights up red for approximately half a second when a key fob with firmware version 3.18 and later is used:    

The system has not executed the key fob command — integrity verification is enabled in the system and one of the devices is faulty


After the main indication, the central LED lights up green once and gradually goes out when a key fob with firmware version 3.16 and lower is used. After the main indication, the central LED lights up red once and goes out gradually when a key fob with firmware version 3.18 and later is used

The key fob battery needs replacement. In this case, the key fob commands are delivered to the security system.


Continuous short flashes of green light when a key fob with firmware version 3.16 and lower is used

Continuous short flashes of red when a key fob with firmware version from 3.18 to 3.52is used

Key fobs with firmware version 3.53 and later do not function when the battery charge level is unacceptably low, do not communicate commands to the hub, and do not notify with LED indication

The battery charge level is unacceptably low. The battery needs replacement.

In this operation mode, the key fob commands are not delivered to the security system.

Connecting the SpaceControl to the AJAX Security System

Connecting the SpaceControl to the Hub

Before starting connection:


1. Following the hub instruction recommendations, install the AJAX application on your smartphone. Create an account, add the hub to the application, and create at least one room.

2. Go to the AJAX application.

3. Switch on the hub and check the internet connection (via Ethernet cable and/or GSM network).

4. Ensure that the hub is disarmed and does not start updates by checking its status in the mobile application.


Only users with administrative privileges can add the device to the hub.


How to connect the SpaceControl to the Hub:

1. Select the Add Device option in the AJAXapplication.

2. Name the device, scan/write manually the QR Code
(located inside the body, on the battery fixture and packaging), and select the location room.

3. Select Add — the countdown will begin.

4. Simultaneously press the button for armed mode (o) and the panic button (!) – the key fob will blink with the central LED. For the detection and interfacing to occur, the key fob should be located within the coverage area of the wireless network of the hub (at a single protected object).

Request for connection to the hub is transmitted for a short time at the time of switching on the device.

The key fob connected to the hub will appear in the list of devices of the hub in the application.

SpaceControl Maintenance

When cleaning the key fob body use any means suitable for equipment maintenance.

Do not use for cleaning SpaceControl any substances containing alcohol, acetone, gasoline and other active solvents.


The pre-installed battery provides up to 5 years of operation of the key fob during normal use (one arming and disarming of the security system per day). More frequent use can reduce battery life. You can check battery level at any time in the AJAX app.


The pre-installed battery is sensitive to low temperatures and if the key fob is significantly cooled, the battery level indicator in the app may show incorrect values until the key fob gets warm.

The value of the battery level is not updated regularly, but only after pressing one of the buttons at the key fob.

When the battery is discharged, the user will receive a notification in the Ajax app, and the key fob LED will slowly light up and go out red each time the button is pressed (key fobs with firmware version 3.16 and lower light up green).

How to change the batteries in the SpaceControl

To change the battery:

1. Apply effort to separate the halves of the body using a thin flat object.
AJAX SpaceControl manual
2. Replace the CR2032 battery with a new one observing the correct polarity.
AJAX SpaceControl manual

3. Assemble the key fob back and test its operation by arming and disarming the security system.

4. Check the battery status in the AJAX application.

The battery level status is not updated regularly but only after one of the buttons on the key fob is pressed.

Never install used or damaged batteries.
