Take a look at the weBoost Drive Sleek product page for more information about the kit and installation.

The term "home" can mean a lot of different things to different people, from an apartment to a mansion, or a condo to a cottage. No matter what your definition is, we have a solution that will allow you to have better signal in your home. Get started with our recommended solutions for single rooms , small to midsize homes , and large homes.

If you need to boost signal in a single room or a small space, like a home office, studio apartment, or living room, then the SureCall Flare Signal Booster is going to be the best solution for you.

It's one of our most economical signal boosters, supports all networks and major carriers in North America, and is fairly easy to install on your own. The most difficult part of installing the SureCall Flare is running the cable from the roof into the home. If you're able to do that, then the rest of the installation should be fairly straightforward. Take a look at the SureCall Flare product page for more information about the kit and installation.

If you have a small to midsize home, cottage, cabin, etc. It comes with a powerful yagi outside antenna, is a step up in power from our entry level line of boosters, and will boost all networks and all carrier in North America. The weBoost Connect 4G is a great balance of boosting power and cost, and should be a good option for you if you have a smaller house up to 1, sq ft with any strength signal outside, or midsize home up to 2, sq ft , with a medium to strong existing outside cell signal.

If you have a weak outside cell signal or a larger home, then we recommend you choose our bestseller for large homes. The weBoost Connect 4G installation does require you to climb up onto the roof of the house and mount an antenna on a vertical pole, and then run a cable into the house. If you're comfortable doing that, then you should be able to install the Connect 4G. If you're not comfortable with that level of installation, then we recommend you hire an electrician, general contractor or cable repair person to complete the installation for you.

Take a look at the weBoost Connect 4G product page for more information about the kit and installation. If you have a large home or a space to fill with boosted signal, then you need the Wilson Pro 70 signal booster , which has the FCC maximum allowed boosting power, the highest quality components, and the built in tools you need to maximize your boosted signal.

The Wilson Pro 70 boosts all networks on all carriers, and can take a weak outside signal and amplify up to a level that can cover around 2, sq ft inside of your home. If your outside signal is stronger, then that coverage area will be even bigger. It has a built in LCD display to show you what your signal booster is doing and allow for easy tweaking and troubleshooting, if necessary, and an industry best 3 year manufacturers warranty.

Finally, it includes a lightning protector so your amplifier is safe from electricity surges running down the outside antenna cable and frying the booster. The Wilson Pro 70 is going to be the most difficult of our signal booster for home because it has the most shielded cables included in the kit. The more shielding a cable has, the less flexible it is, so it makes running this cable a bit more difficult than your standard RG6 cable.

If you're able to mount an antenna on the roof and run the low loss cable, then you should be able to install the Pro Apart from the more shielded cable, the installation for the Pro 70 is the same as the Connect 4G:. Take a look at the Wilson Pro 70 product page for more information about the kit and installation. In this day and age, it is a requirement that businesses have good cell phone signal for its employees and customers. Our professional level signal boosters are designed to provide maximum coverage and handle a large number of simultaneous users for consistent, reliable signal.

While our standard signal kits should be sufficient for smaller businesses, if you have a large or uniquely shaped space, you may need a custom system designed and installed by our team of experts to ensure complete coverage and maximum performance.

Get started with our recommended solutions for small spaces , midsize spaces , or large spaces in your business, or take a look at our M2M solution for your internet enabled devices. For businesses that only take up a small space, but need quality signal throughout, the weBoost Connect 4G is going to be a great balance of boosting and affordability.

It can provide boosted signal between a few hundred to a few thousand sq ft, depending on the outside signal, and supports all networks on all major carriers simultaneously. As long as you're able to mount an antenna outside of the building that the business is in, and run a cable inside, then the Connect 4G will be able to boost it and broadcast the quality signal throughout the space that needs it. The weBoost Connect 4G is fairly easy to install, as long as you're able to mount an antenna outside, ideally on the roof, and run a cable into the building.

While every business is different, we'll run through the installation from a high level, so you can determine if the Connect 4G will work for you. Since every business is unique, it can be difficult to recommend a single product to cover as many scenarios as possible, but the SureCall Fusion5X 2. It also comes with a choice of inside and outside antenna types, so you can customize the kit to your specific situation. The SureCall Fusion5X 2.

Take a look at the SureCall Fusion5X 2. Unlike smaller spaces, large spaces, like manufacturing plants, hospitals, warehouses, hotels and apartment buildings, typically require a full site analysis, custom system design and professional installation. The custom system is built around one or many enterprise level amplifiers, like the SureCall Force5 2.

The SureCall Force5 2. Depending on the outside signal, multiple SureCall Force5 amplifiers can be used throughout the facility to amplify and provide the necessary coverage in the most efficient manner possible.

While most of our signal booster kits are designed to be able to be installed by someone how is fairly handy and provide boosted signal for small to medium size spaces, at some point, the size and complexity of the situation will be too much for a single booster kit with pre-terminated cables to handle. At that point, a custom system must be designed to take the existing outside cell signal, adequately amplify it with one or many enterprise amplifiers, and then distribute that signal evenly throughout a network of internal antennas, ensuring that coverage is sufficient throughout the space.

This information is used to model and design out a system that will provide the necessary coverage throughout the required space. Once the design has received signoff, the installation can be performed by our team of highly qualified signal specialists, or the components and cabling can be installed by an in-house crew, and our team can tune and balance the amplifiers for maximum performance after the installation.

Take a look at the Wilson Signal 4G product page for more information about the kit and installation. In addition, it is often necessary to make long outside cable runs in order to place the outside donor antenna as high up on the roof or mast as possible, so ultra-low loss cable is needed to ensure that minimal signal is lost on the way to the amplifier.

The following signal booster solutions are ideal choices for anyone who lives or frequents rural areas and experience weak outside signal. They'll create the largest possible coverage area inside of your home, office or other type of building, so you have reliable cell signal, no dropped calls, consistent text messaging, and fast data speeds.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to discuss your situation in more depth and have one of our signal experts help you determine the best solution for your needs. While every booster kit includes everything that you need to get started boosting signal, there are some accessories that can improve the effectiveness of your system or provide added protection against failure. In this chapter, we'll review the accessories that we recommend you take a look at, including:.

After purchasing a high quality signal booster system, the last thing you want is anything to happen to the amplifier. This is where a lightning protector comes in. Contrary to its name, a lightning protector also known as a lightning surge suppressor or arrester does not protect specifically against a lightning strike, as that would physically destroy the building that the amplifier is in, but rather it prevents against the build up of static electricity in the air caused by storms or other atmospheric conditions that can travel down the antenna cable and electrify the amplifier.

The lightning protector prevents this by connecting directly to the outside antenna cable between the outside antenna and the amplifier. The protector acts as a fuse, so if there is too much current running down the line, the fuse will blow and prevent the surge from reaching the amplifier. If your building signal booster did not come with a lightning protector, we highly recommend that you purchase one to protect your amplifier.

Electrical surges are not covered under any manufacturers equipment warranty, so it's worth the investment to protect your signal booster. Cables are an important part of any signal booster system, as the quality and length of each cable determines how much signal will be lost between the amplifier and the antenna s. The less signal you lose in transit, the larger the inside coverage area will be, so it's good to understand the types of cable available.

In theory, you would want to use the lowest loss cable possible, but there are tradeoffs to consider. The lower the loss of the cable, the larger it is in diameter with extra insulation and shielding, making it less flexible and harder to work with.

Extremely low loss cable can be as thick as a garden hose and very difficult to run in anything but a straight line. In addition, the lower loss the cable, the more expensive it is, so long cable runs can dramatically increase the cost of a system. Each cable type will lose a certain amount of signal over a distance, with lower loss cable obviously losing less signal. Depending on how much signal you have to begin with, a long cable run can result in all of your signal being lost, with none left when you get to the end of the cable.

It's important then to use the shortest length cable possible, and use the highest grade lowest loss cable that you can afford and that you're able to run from the amplifier to the antenna s. There are a few different types of cables that are used with signal booster systems. We'll cover them in depth below:. The cables that are included in the signal booster that you purchase will usually be sufficient for your situation, but if you have a unique floor plan, very large area, or require professional installation, then it may be worth taking a look at other cable options.

The performance, gain and distribution pattern of your antennas can greatly affect the performance of your booster system. We'll cover the different building antenna and mobile antenna options available, and discuss the pros and cons of each. Building antennas are designed to be permanently mounted in one location and handle a signal environment that is fairly consistent unlike mobile antennas that are constantly in motion. These antennas are typically larger and more powerful than their mobile equivalents.

While most signal booster kits come with a single inside antenna, in many cases adding an additional antenna s can help to increase the inside coverage area, or to craft the way that the signal is distributed in uniquely shaped areas.

If you have a medium to strong outside signal and aren't getting full coverage throughout your space, then you an additional antenna could be a good option for you. There are two main types of outside antennas for buildings: There are three types of inside antennas for buildings: Mobile antennas are typically designed to be easy to install in a vehicle, like a car or truck, though they are sometimes more permanently installed, like with an RV, semi-truck or boat.

All need to be able to handle a constantly changing outside signal and to be able to efficiently deliver signal to the mobile devices in the vehicle. We'll cover the different types of antennas for outside and inside the vehicle. There are three main types of outside antennas for vehicles: There are three types of inside antennas for vehicles: Splitters and tappers are important components of any signal booster system, as they allow you to split the signal being passed over a cable so you can create a network of inside antennas to distribute boosted signal throughout a location.

They can also be used to combine signal coming from multiple antennas into one input for an amplifier. We'll cover both in more depth below. A splitter is a component that evenly splits signal from one input to multiple outputs, and vice versa. Splitters typically come in two, three and four-way versions, so you can split a single signal into up to four evenly split outputs.

There is typically a small amount of loss when you use a splitter, so you should take that into account when designing an efficient signal booster system.

A tapper , otherwise known as a coupler, is like a splitter, but it splits a signal unevenly, rather than evenly distributing the signal across multiple outputs.

It is a critical component and is used when designing signal booster systems for situations where you need to split a signal, but send more signal in one direction and less in another. Tappers come in different ratios of splitting, depending on how much signal you need to send in each direction.

The yagi directional antenna that comes with most building signal boosters is designed to be mounted to a vertical pole or mast on the roof of the building and then aimed at the nearest cell tower.

A pole mount is an accessory that includes the vertical pole and mounting hard to make it easy to install a pole on the roof and mount the external antenna. Pole mounts vary in length, width and functionality, with some being a very basic one foot pole with an L bracket , to more complex units that use angled poles and mounting hardware with multiple installation options to precisely situate the pole in the best possible location.

Choose the one that will solve your specific situation the best. Every situation is a little different, so you may encounter some challenges while installing and using your cell phone signal booster. In this chapter, we'll cover the most common issues you may run into with your booster and how to fix them, and then discuss some tips for getting the best performance from your system.

While there are many different issues that can arise when boosting cell signal, most fall into one of two buckets: We'll cover both of these below and discuss the steps on how to fix each. If your problem does not fall into either of these buckets, then contact us and our team of signal experts can talk through your situation and recommend ways to remedy it. Oscillation occurs when the boosted signal that is being broadcast from the inside antenna s reaches the outside antenna and causes a feedback loop, similar to a high pitched sound you hear if you take a microphone too close to an amplified speaker.

The signal booster amplifier will try to mitigate this issue by reducing the boosting power on the band that is causing the oscillation, which shrinks the coverage area so that it doesn't get back to the outside antenna.

This works a lot of the time, and because it does it automatically, you typically would not notice that it even happened. If you're seeing warning indicators on the amplifier that it is experiencing oscillation, then that means that the amplifier has tried to fix the problem and has reached it's limitations, so we need to do other things to fix the problem. One other thing to note: If the carriers that you need to boost all have roughly the same outside signal strength, then having the amplifier adjust the boosting power to fix oscillation is a good solution.

If one carrier is strong and others are weak, then the strong carrier is going to have a much larger coverage area inside of the building, but the amplifier will reduce all boosting by the same amount, and shrink the weak carrier signals to almost nothing while it's trying to fix the strong signal causing the large coverage area.

In this case we'll want to try and fix the problem in another way and let the amplifier work at full power. The very first thing to check when dealing with oscillation is whether the directional antenna is pointed across the roof or away from the roof if you're using an omni antenna, then this does not apply. If the directional antenna is pointed across the roof, then there is a high likelihood that it is picking up boosted signal radiating out, so you should move the antenna to the other side, so that it is facing away from the building.

Once you've confirmed that the outside antenna is facing away from the building, then the main way to fix oscillation is to move the antennas further apart.

Typically this means moving the inside antenna further from the outside antenna, but if there is an opportunity to move the outside antenna further away, and potentially higher, while still receiving the same outside signal strength, then that is a good option.

When moving antennas, vertical separation is more important than horizontal, though a combination of both are good. We also recommend powering down the amplifier before moving the antennas. Once the antennas are in the new positions, power up the amplifier and see if you're still experiencing oscillation. Keep moving the antennas if so.

If you've moved the antennas as much as possible and are still experiencing oscillation, one last thing to try is to introduce shielding for the outside antenna. If the antenna is outside on the roof, then moving it so that an object, like the chimney or air conditioning unit, is between the antenna on the roof and the rest of the building. If the outside antenna is installed inside, then placing metal, like foil or a metal filing cabinet, behind the antenna to block the boosted signal is an option as well.

Overload occurs when the outside signal from one or multiple carriers is very strong and is overloading the amplifier with too much cell signal. The amplifier will attempt to compensate for this by reducing the boosting power, but frequently the signal is too strong and the amplifier reaches its limitations before the problem is solved.

If you're using a yagi directional antenna for the outside, then the best way to mitigate overload is to change the direction of the outside antenna to receive less signal, and allow the amplifier work to at full capacity to boost and distribute the signal.

Follow the instructions in the How to Aim a Yagi Directional Antenna guide to incrementally change the direction of the yagi antenna, and then check the amplifier for overload indicators and take signal readings inside with cell phones on each carrier you need to boost. If it turns out that you're in an urban area and have multiple towers nearby that are overloading your antenna with strong signal from every direction, then the next best option is to use an attenuator , which is a component that sits on the antenna cable and cuts out a set amount of decibels from the signal coming in.

An attenuator will cut back the cell signal across all carriers and bands, irrespective of if they are strong or weak, so it's not an ideal solution and should only be used if re-aiming the outside antenna does not help, as it may cause carriers with weak cell signal to have sub-part coverage and performance inside. While most standard signal booster installations should provide you with sufficient coverage for quality voice calls and fast data, if you're looking to tweak your system to provide even more performance, here are some things that you can do:.

While this guide should address most situations that you'll encounter when choosing and installing a booster, especially for residential or vehicle use, we wanted to provide you with a list of resources for continued reading and to reference for further assistance.

Accessories That You Should Consider. There are three main causes bad cell phone signal: Distance from the Cell Tower.

First, we'll cover whether cell phone boosters really work , then discuss the basics of how a signal booster works , and finally go into more depth on the two main types of signal boosters: Vehicle signal boosters for cars, trucks, RVs and boats Building signal boosters for homes, businesses and any structure that needs signal Lastly, we'll cover how signal strength affects coverage and 2G, 3G and 4G LTE networks. Cell Phone Signal Booster Basics A cell phone signal booster is a system made up of an outside antenna called a donor antenna , a cell phone signal amplifier, one or more inside antennas, and cable to connect them all together.

A cell phone signal booster is designed to solve the three main causes of poor cell phone signal in the following ways: Distance from the Cell Tower - The signal booster amplifies the weak outside cell signal, both to and from the nearby cell towers, to compensate for the distance. Obstacles in the Way - An omni outside antenna can receive and broadcast strong cell signal in all directions to maximize the chance that the signal will make it around the obstacles in the way.

Construction Materials - The signal booster uses high quality cable to route cell signal around the construction materials that are blocking signal and then distribute it to the areas that need better reception.

Vehicle signal boosters are designed for use while moving like while driving in a car and stopped. Building signal boosters are designed to be used in one location only and provide significantly more boosting and coverage than a vehicle signal booster. Vehicle Signal Boosters Vehicle signal boosters are engineered to be used in a car, truck, RV, or boat, and thus need to be able to handle the constantly changing signal environment outside.

Get started finding your solution: Best Vehicle Signal Boosters If you're looking for better signal on your daily commute, while exploring the country in your RV, or during your day on the lake, then we have a signal booster for you.

You should place this on the roof, away from your sunroof, if you have one, and then run the attached cable through the molding of one of your car doors, and connect it to the outside antenna port of the amplifier. The amplifier can be located under one of the seats, as long as it can be reached by the power cable and both antenna cables.

Attach the inside antenna cable to the inside antenna port on the amplifier, and then run the cable to the front of the vehicle.

The inside antenna broadcasts in all directions, so it can be mounted to the dashboard using the attached vent clip or to the side of the one of the front seats. Finally, plug in the power supply to the amplifier and your cigarette lighter, and you should start to receive boosted signal right away. The kit comes with a small omnidirectional outside antenna and mounting hardware to afix it to a vertical pole. Ideally, you would attach the antenna to the ladder at the back of the RV if you have one.

Otherwise, you may have to be creative with attaching the outside antenna to the roof of the RV. As long the antenna is not obstructed in a degree view, then you should be ok. Run the included cable from the antenna into the RV. You may need to drill a hole at this step, in case there isn't an existing opening to take advantage of.
