Once you've finished adding the devices to the system and installed them in their desired locations your system is good to go! The only thing left is to fine tune the system. Let's take a quick look at the deeper options.

AX Pro Area


Area

From here we can add different areas to which you can assign the detectors too. You can then arm each area independantly from eachother. Useful if you want to arm the downstairs but not upstairs of a property.

AX Pro Status

Hub Status

From here you can monitor the status of your AX Pro Hub, wheather it is connected via Ethernet / WiFi / 4G, battery and lid tamper status.

AX Pro Device Settings

Device status

From the device page, if you select an individual component you can view the information specific to that item. 

Temperature, battery status, signal strength, alongside adjusting sensitivity of detectors, volume level of sounders and customising button commands from the keyfobs.

AX Pro Device Configuration Options

Device Configuration

From the device status page, if you tap the configuration cog in the top right you can then configure each device in detail.

Set linked area, set a delay before the sounder is triggered, enable the chime, if you have an existing Hikvision CCTV system you can link a detector to a specific camera.

With the external sounder you can customise the alarm duration, enable/disable the strobe flash from here.

AX Pro External Sounder Options

Handily, if you ever get stuck with configuring any component, scroll down to the bottom and you can tap 'User Guide' which will take you straight to the manual for the device! No need to hunt around on Google.

If you ever need to remove a component from your system, this is where you will find the option to 'Delete'.
