Alarm system manufacturers have been looking for an alternative to Wi-Fi for a long time and have finally found it after years of development.
The great disadvantage of WiFi is that its range is very limited. Outside the home, in your garden or in the attic, the signal strength is already insufficient to be able to surf the internet reliably and quickly. You don’t want this weak signal for an alarm system that has to be reliable.
This is what the manufacturers of the products we offer thought, and that is why they developed a completely new wireless protocol that can reliably bridge long distances, and that is encrypted and securely transmitted.
Tri-X is capable of bridging 2,000 metres in open field. This distance can be extended a further four times using wireless repeaters, so that larger companies can also use a modern alarm system such as the Hikvision AX pro.
Tri-X works in two directions. The Hub is wired and electrically connected to the Hikvision Cloud via the Internet. And the detectors are wirelessly connected via the Tri-X protocol. The detectors frequently report to the Hub to indicate that everything is in order. As soon as one of the detectors does not respond to a status request, the Hub will notify the Cloud.
Since your smartphone is also continuously connected to the Hikvision Cloud via the Hikconnect application, you will be notified immediately. If the Hub loses the connection to the Cloud because for example your internet is offline at home, the Cloud will also notify you directly on your smartphone.
The Hub has up to 4 communication channels which can be used to maintain a connection with the Cloud. But even without a connection of all these channels, the alarm system will continue to work normally, and will simply sound the siren in case of a burglary attempt. In addition, you will receive a notification on your smartphone of any lost connections to the Cloud.
This technique makes the Hikvision AX Pro wireless alarm even more reliable than a wired alarm system with constant notification to an alarm centre, because all connections are checked every few seconds of the day.
