Notice: You NEED an account with CellGate before you can use this application. This Application is designed and intended for the sole use by CellGate Access Control and Monitoring Subscribers.
The CellGate Access Control and Monitoring system lets you control who enters your property and when—from any location, at any time. By simply logging in to your online CellGate account, you can create and customize an unlimited number of access codes and maintain a detailed historical record of all gate activity, including photos.
Our solar- and AC-powered system packages contain everything you need for remotely controlling automatic and manual gates, and the system's camera options help ensure you receive photos of all gate activity directly to your mobile phone. Built specifically for use with cellular networks and the internet, the CellGate system allows you to monitor and control access to your property 24 hours a day, directly from your mobile phone or any internet connection.
No matter where in the world you happen to be, when a visitor arrives you will receive text, email or voice alerts to your cell phone. Then simply send an open command to any gate anywhere in the U.S.
Working with manual or automatic gates and powered by solar or AC, the CellGate system can operate in a variety of environments such as Farms and Ranches, Oil and Gas Sites, Residences, Deer Leases and Self-Storage Facilities.
Exotic/Wild Game Traps are also controlled and monitored by CellGate with the added option to disable motion triggered image messages after the trap has been closed.

App Needs Work
If you want to truly get an accurate idea of what’s going on with your gate, you need to go to the Cell-gate website and go to your account.
The app isn’t sophisticated enough to know if your gate is open or closed and then display meaningful options for controlling it.
I like the idea of user simplicity, but in order to achieve that goal, a lot more work needs to go on behind the scenes in developing this app.
Needs cell signal video streaming option on the app
This video streaming for this app works beautifully as long as the device that is called from the gate or door requesting access is currently connected to Wi-Fi. If you are out of Wi-Fi connected areas when someone calls from the gate, the app won’t connect and the call is redirected to your regular phone number as an incoming call and you will not get video streaming. When this happens, you will have to separately access the app in order to open the gate. That would have been a good thing to let this user know because I thought the video streaming just wasn’t working when I tested it while 200 yards away from Wi-Fi at the gate.
The app should have the capability to select the option to: stream via WiFi, or through cellular data when WIFI is unavailable-similar to FaceTime. You would have to understand that this would increase data usage and additional charges might apply but people should at least have the option to do so.
5 areas where it needs improvement
1. Notifications are unreliable
2. Camera should motion detect and issue notification.
3. Needs integration with HomeKit/Siri.
4. Needs an Alexa skill.
5. The app itself needs shortcuts and better memory persistence. Currently, due to lack of proper memory persistence, when I want to open my gate, I have to launch the app, login, select the address, select gate, select open gate. That’s a lot of tapping and loading of pages. As much as possible these things should be consolidated. The camera/gate selection page shouldn’t exist. The two different pages should be one. I’d imaging many of us only have 1 address, if so, there shouldn’t be an address selection screen. In addition to the “Hold open”, “Close”, “Open Momentarily”, there should be a “Hold Open for X Minutes” where X is defined in settings.
The problem that should be solved here is that the amount of time between when a guest arrives and when the gate is opened should be as short as possible. These UI/UE flaws result in increased effort and time.
Additionally, since we may be driving, the ability to use voice commands or at least streamline the amount of taps required is very beneficial.
