Cellular and Bluetooth Access Control System Features

Controlling your gate today is much easier than it was twenty years ago. With the rise of cellular and Bluetooth technology, cellular access controls now have all new features that make securing a gate faster and more efficient.

A cellular gate entry system works by setting up a relay when activated from a cellular device. This relay causes the gate to either open or lock.

Learn more about some features from the most innovative models.

Cellular Access Control Features

The Ascent, a line from the American-made Security Brands Inc, is one popular choice for gate control. Some models offer rugged construction to deter vandalism; others contain an HD camera for photos of individuals entering a gate. All ascent models can be controlled by a handy app on your cellular phone or your desktop. Depending on the use case, one model may have more of the features you are looking for than another. The Ascent features various series that all offer unique features.

The Edge E1 series has a smart, LED-backlit keypad that is easy to see during the day and night. The app allows you to control and manage the keypad from your handheld device.
