Always complete a site survey to make sure you have cellular coverage. Our cellular products run on the 4G LTE network.
This is a cellular accessory for a gate/door, so an uninterrupted cellular connection cannot be guaranteed.
An emergency egress or primary entry mechanism should always be used (transmitter, fire box, mechanical release).
Consult with your dealer, distributor, and/or system designer for more information.

5 reviews for Ascent X1 – Cellular Telephone Entry System with Keypad

  1. Colby

    We have installed several of these units across the state. These units are great with top notch tech support and very user friendly device. This is the only unit we suggest when our customers request the ability to control their gate with a smart device app or request telephone entry. We have large sites with multiple units on site and they work flawlessly. – Alabama Ornamental, Inc.

  2. Brian Spalding

    We have installed several of these for customers over the last 3 years. The units are very good, support card readers easily and the tech support when needed is very good as well. Would like to see a level of programming added to where integrators could make batch programming changes or copy databases between units. Very pleased with the solution these units provide.

    The Best entry system, 10 years of installations in Texas and Oklahoma,

    I have installed several of these and I have to say I am impressed. The quality is great and they are easy to install. The end user has complete control over the programming and database management. The ONLY reason I didn’t give 5 stars was because of the monthly fee accompanied with it. It’s tiered at $19.99/month for basic features, all the way to $39.99/month for the most advanced features. My customers want to go cellular to get away from monthly fees involved with landlines and the increasingly difficult to find provider of traditional POTS lines. Considering the monthly fees charged and the cost of a cellular line added onto an existing plan you’re not really saving much money. You do get convenience though. From what I’ve seen AAS would sell more of these if they would drop the price on those fees.

  5. Ryan Hofmeister

    My company has installed many of these with out issue and it is our go to cellular unit. Programing or guiding our customer to program online is simple and installation is easy. Highly recommend this product.
