All you need is a phone.
A small USB device you connects to the GSM network.
Enables you to open your gates with a phone call.
- Insert a SIM card
- Add authorised phone numbers with the web app
- Call the digiGate
digiGate hangs up when called so no cost to your phone.
The digiGate GSM dongle requires a standard size mobile SIM card to operate.
We recommend using a GiffGaff SIM as they require no regular topups or 30 day rolling contracts.
SIM card must be active with credit loaded and voicemail disabled.
Only people you allow can open the gates with a call.
Anyone else gets rejected.
digiGate GSM works by using a pay-as-you-go SIM card, costing around 60p a year for you to run.
This means that a £10 top up will last approximately 16 years before requiring another top up.
Insert a data loaded SIM and connect digiGate to the Internet.
Ideal for gates with no Ethernet or WiFi available.
Calling functionality still remains.
Data usage varies from 2GB per month upwards.
Do I need the app to use the GSM dongle?
No. The dongle receives phone calls so no app is required.
Will the dongle work in my area?
The dongles are unlocked to any network so area coverage is dependant on the SIM card you use.
