Find the Strongest Cellular Signal
Before you install your Home 4G signal booster, you must determine the location of the best available cellular signal. This will affect the location of your Outside Antenna and will help you get the best performance from your Home 4G. You can fi    the strongest signal outside your building, typically at the highest point available, using any of the following methods:
Best method:
Connect the Outside Antenna to the Home 4G signal booster, and the Home 4G to the Desktop Antenna. Have one person outside (on the roof for best results) rotate the Outside Antenna with a second person inside the building near the Desktop Antenna watching the signal strength on a phone. This allows you to read the signal strength from nearby cell towers.
The person inside should have the phone in test mode so the numerical signal strength can be
read. This is more accurate than the bar indicator. Go to www.weboost.  com/us/test-mode-instructions for help in finding the test mode for
your phone.
The person on the roof should turn the Outside Antenna 45 degrees
at a time. Allow 30 seconds for the phone to register with each turn.
Rotate in 45° increments







The person inside should note the readings on the phone with each turn.
Signal readings usually appear as a negative number. The closer the
number gets to zero, the stronger the signal (for example, -86 dB would be a moderately good reading while -55 dB would be an excellent reading, and -110 dB would be a weak, or unusable signal).


Once you have determined which direction provides the strongest outside signal, you can install the Outside Antenna in that general direction.
Good methods:
Place calls from several locations outside your building. As you move to different locations, note where you get the best reception.
If you have a smart phone, you can download apps that help you identify locations of cell phone towers or the strongest signal. Go
to the App Store and search for “cell signal” to find available apps for your device.


Acceptable method: Check the bar indicator on your cell phone display and note where the signal appears the strongest. (Note: cell phone bars are only an approximation of signal strength and vary from phone to phone.) Phones can take up to 30
seconds to reset to a new reading. Be patient and repeat your signal check several times.

Quick Install - Inside Window Mount Option
Additional installation options on pg. 6-8 Find the Strongest Cellular Signal
(See page 4 for suggested methods.)
Ready to Install Inside Window Mount
Select a location on the inside of a window as high as possible and at least 20 feet from where the Home 4G will be located. Note that this distance typically requires the window mount
to be in a different room from where you will locate the Home 4G and Desktop Antenna. The window should face roughly in the direction of the strongest cellular signal (see section headed “Find the Strongest Cellular Signal” on page 4).




Clean the area on the glass with the alcohol prep pad included in Packet C.


Insert the suction cups included in Packet C into the holes on the Outside Antenna cradle using a twisting motion. Press the suction cups onto the window in the desired location.
Insert the Outside Antenna into the cradle.

Connect the supplied coax cable to the antenna lead cable on the Outside Antenna.



Route the cable as desired to the location of the Home 4G. If you need to connect both coax cables, use the Cable Connector provided.

Connect the coax cable to the Home 4G. Connect the Desktop Antenna to the Home 4G. For instructions on install and Desktop Antenna placement refer to page 9.

Need help?


Customer Support 866-294-1660    5
Connect the Home 4G to a surge protected AC power strip with at least a 1000 Joule rating. If your Home 4G is working correctly, the lights will be green.
Installation Options
Outside Pole Mount Option (Best Option)
Select a location on the roof where the Outside Antenna can be mounted on a pole maintaining at least 20 feet of vertical or horizontal separation from the inside Desktop Antenna.



If the lights are orange or red, see the “Troubleshooting” section on page 10.
NOTE:
Modern energy efficient dual-pane windows with coatings will weaken the cellular signals as they pass through because of a metal oxide film applied during manufacturing. If you have dual-pane windows with energy efficient coatings, we rec- ommend one of the other mounting options if your performance is not to your satisfaction.




Place the desktop signal antenna directly beneath the placement of the Outside Antenna location
At least 20 feet of vertical or horizontal separation from the desktop antenna is needed




Find an existing pole or obtain a pole of 1 to 2 inches in diameter.
Mounting hardware to attach the pole to the roof can be purchased from a hardware store or you can purchase a weBoost’s pole mount accessory kit, part #901117. Install the pole in the desired location.


Using the hardware in Packet A, slide both brackets onto U-bolt. Tighten nut
& washers set onto U-bolt.




6    Need help?        Customer Support  866-294-1660
Fit the assembly onto the pole in your desired location by sliding the second half of the bracket onto the U-bolt and securing it with the lock washers and nuts provided. Be sure the cradle is at the desired height and rotated toward the strongest cellular signal before tightening the nuts. Do not over tighten.

     
Connect the supplied coax cable to the antenna lead cable on the Outside Antenna.

     

Route the cable as desired to the location of the Home 4G. If you need to connect both coax cables, use the Cable Connector provided. Secure the cable with ties as needed (ties not provided).


Outside Wall Mount Option
Select a location on an outside wall as high as possible and at least 20 feet from where the Home 4G will be located. The wall should face in roughly the same direction as the strongest cellular signal.



Face in roughly the same direction as the strongest cellular signal

Position the Outside Antenna bracket, from Packet B, on the wall as a template and mark the screw holes with a pencil.



Drill four holes where you marked, using a 3/16-inch bit. Insert the plastic screw anchors provided in Packet B.

Outside Antenna bracket
Line up the Outside Antenna bracket with the screw anchors. Mount
the cradle antenna bracket to the wall using the four screws and four washers provided in Packet B.


Connect the supplied coax cable to the antenna lead cable on the Outside Antenna.



Route the cable as desired to the location of the Home 4G. If you need to connect both coax cables, use the Cable Connector provided.

Customer Support 866-294-1660    7
Rafter Mount Option
Select a location in the building’s rafters where the Outside Antenna can be mounted directly above the Desktop Antenna with at least 20 feet vertical
or horizontal separation. The location should allow you to mount the Outside Antenna roughly in the direction of the strongest cellular signal.

Mount in the general direction of the strongest cellular signal

Mount at least 20 feet apart

Mount the Outside Antenna bracket
to the rafter using the four screws and four washers provided in Packet B (pre-drill if necessary).
Additional Considerations
Whichever installation you choose, keep the following guidelines in mind to maximize your signal strength:
Always turn the Outside Antenna so the weBoost logo is toward the strongest cellular signal. The strength of the
signal at the Desktop Antenna (and therefore, how far it will transmit a signal) is dependent upon the signal strength
at the Outside Antenna. Be sure to maximize the strength at the Outside Antenna.
Rotate in small increments

Maintain a distance of at least 20 feet from the Outside Antenna to the Home 4G unit.

Connect the supplied coax cable to the antenna lead cable on the Outside Antenna.
Route the cable as desired to the location of the Home 4G. If you need to connect both coax cables, use the Cable Connector provided.
If possible, place the Desktop Signal Antenna directly beneath the placement of the Outside Antenna location. This creates a maximized
signal zone within the room where the Desktop Antenna remains.
Place the desktop signal antenna directly beneath the placement of the Outside Antenna location
At least 20 feet of vertical or horizontal separation from the desktop antenna is needed

Keep the Home 4G and the Desktop Antenna at least 18 inches away from each other with the weBoost logo on the Desktop Antenna facing away from the Home 4G.


Do not face the Outside Antenna and the Desktop Antenna toward each other. This can cause the Home 4G to show red lights and shut down, preventing oscillation or feedback (see troubleshooting on pg. 10). In other words, the weBoost logos
on the Outside Antenna and the Desktop Antenna should always be facing away from each other.

DO NOT
face the Outside Antenna and the Desktop Antenna toward each other
Home 4G and Desktop Antenna Placement
Select a location for the Home 4G that is away from excessive heat, direct sunlight, and moisture and has proper ventilation. Recommended locations include on a shelf, in a closet, on a desk or behind it. Be sure the location is near a power outlet. To ensure proper ventilation, keep other objects at least six (6) inches away.
Place the Home 4G on a desk, table or other solid surface where you have routed the cable from the Outside Antenna.


Attach the coax cable from the Outside Antenna to the Home 4G at the connector labeled “Outside Antenna.”


Recommended: Lightning Surge Protector (Sold Separately, part #859992)
We recommend you install the Lightning Surge Protector (LSP) close to the Home 4G. Attach the cable from the Outside Antenna to the surge protector and ground the surge protector. The LSP is sold separately.
Attach the Inside Antenna to the connector labeled “Inside Antenna.”
Ensure the Inside Antenna is facing away from both the Home 4G and the Outside Antenna.

Troubleshooting & Understanding Lights
The Home 4G includes four indicator lights, one for each band (see FAQ for explanation of MHz bands). Each indicator light will either be green, orange or red.


Plug in the power supply to the Home 4G at the input marked “Power” (next to the “Outside Antenna” connector). Plug the power supply into a surge protected AC power strip with at least a 1000 Joule rating.
Important notice: Connect your Home 4G AC Power Supply to a surge protected AC power strip with at least a 1000 Joule rating. Failure to do this will void your warranty in the event  of a power surge or lightning strike.



Check the lights on top of the Home
4G. 4 green lights mean you have good signal. If you do not have green lights, see the following Troubleshooting Tips.

Band 4 Band 25/2 Band 5
Band 12/13/17




Green indicates that the booster is powered and operating at maximum gain.
Solid Red indicates that the booster has shut off on the associated frequencies to prevent oscillation (feedback).
Solid Orange indicates that the booster has shut off on the associated frequencies due to close proximity of a cell tower.
Green/Orange Blinking indicates that the booster is operating at a reduced gain due to close proximity of a cell tower.
Green/Red Blinking indicates that the booster is operating at a reduced gain to prevent oscillation (feedback).
Note: All red light issues must be resolved before orange light issues.
Fixing Red Light Issues
If one or more lights on the Signal Boost are red:
Make sure all connections are tight.
Increase the distance between the outside antenna and the inside antenna, by moving them horizontally and/or vertically farther apart until the light(s) change to green.



10    Need help?        Customer Support  866-294-1660
Follow the same steps for a green/red blinking light until the light goes solid green.
If more separation is not possible and the coverage of the booster is too small with a green/red blinking light indicating reduced gain, contact the weBoost Customer Support Team for assistance: 866-294-1660.
Fixing Orange Light Issues
If one or more lights on the Signal Booster are orange:
Move the Outside Antenna away from the strongest cellular signal in small increments until the light turns green or green/orange blinking.
If the light remains orange, or if the green/orange blinking light indicating reduced gain is not providing enough coverage area, contact the weBoost Customer Support Team for assistance: 866-294-1660.
Lights Off
If one or more of the lights on the Signal Booster are off verify power to your surge protected power strip.


NOTE: The Signal Booster can be reset by disconnecting and reconnecting the power supply.
Additional FAQ:
What hours can I contact customer support?
Customer Support can be reached from 7:00am to 6:00pm MST, by calling (866-294-1660). How does weather affect the performance of my Outside Antenna?
Water vapor (e.g. rain, fog, snow or other precipitation) creates an effective filter to cellular signal. In times of heavy precipitation, you may see less performance.
What’s the difference between the 800 MHz and the 1900 MHz bands? How do I know which MHz band my cell phone uses?
The Home 4G works with all major North American cellular providers on the 800 & 1900 MHz frequencies. Traditionally, 800/1900MHz are associated with voice and 3G data; while 700MHz and 1700/2100MHz are associated with 4G data.
Why do I need to maintain at least 20 feet of separation, but no more than 50 feet? OR Why do I need to create so much distance between the antennas?
Antennas connected to a booster create a sphere of signal. When these sphere’s overlap, a condition called oscillation occurs. This oscillation can be thought of as noise, which causes the booster to shut down to prevent damage from occurring. The best way to keep these spheres of signal from creating noise is to maintain separation between your inside and Outside Antennas.
However – as any cable has loss, we recommend that you try to minimize the total separation to keep within the range of 20-50 feet.
