What Is Ascent?

Security Brands Inc Ascent X1

The Boost You Need

Because the Ascent family of products are cellular, you don’t have to be in close proximity to a wi-fi router to operate your gate or door. And because they’re cellular, Ascent access control systems do not require trenching for long cable runs. Any way you look at it, Ascent gives you the boost you need!

How it Works

Taking advantage of an ever-expanding cellular network, we’ve accomplished something with our Ascent family of cellular products that only a handful of years ago was unimaginable–connecting access control systems easily over large distances and controlling and managing them from anywhere in the world. Whether you’re ten feet away or thousands of miles away–it makes no difference–you can control and manage your gate or door with ease.

Cellular access control systems have a huge advantage over their hardwired cousins–no lengthy wire runs! No longer held back by the time, expense, and/or the logistics involved in running a phone line (and other wires) out to your access control unit, you have the freedom to place your system wherever you need it, as long as you have a signal.

Interconnected Systems and Reporting

With interconnected systems, the primary prohibitive factor was always the maximum distance of wire runs; once you exceeded this distance, the signal began to degrade to the point where it was unusable. With our Ascent family of products powered by Summit Control, this is no longer an issue. You can install and control a complete system (made up of many individual units) over a large campus, or even across multiple states, as easily as you would a single system at your own house, and you do all administration from a convenient and secure online dashboard.

Reporting is arguably one of the most important security elements of an access control system, and it’s one of the key elements built into our Ascent family of products powered by Summit Control. An up-to-date event log is at your fingertips whenever you need it, and it can be sorted by user, unit, and location, so you will always know exactly who has come and gone and when.

Ascent and Summit Control work together in perfect harmony, making access control simple, no matter the scale or scope of your project.
