Connect the Smart Signal Booster to the Coverage Unit (Power Supply) with the cable provided. Do not plug the Coverage Unit into the wall yet.

4. Locate an open power outlet

Find an open power outlet in the room/area identified in step 2. Plug the Coverage Unit into the power outlet and wait for the system to start up. The system is ready to use when you see a solid blue light on the front of the Smart Signal Booster. See the Troubleshooting guide for some of the common problems you may encounter with your system. The power outlet should not be behind any large objects, such as furniture, as this will interfere with the signal. It is acceptable if the Coverage Unit is rotated in any direction. It will function normally in any position, but for best results, we recommend a vertical orientation.


Do’s and Don’ts

5. Find a location for the Smart Signal Booster

Position the Smart Signal Booster on the wall as far from the Coverage Unit as possible (this will improve isolation). Approximately 2 meters above the floor in a vertical position. Typically, closest to the building exterior is the ideal location. Make sure the Smart Signal Booster is not blocked or covered by large objects such as furniture.

6. Confirm and optimize your placement

Once the system is boosting, run the WAVE app (downloaded in step 1) to check your boost number. If you are satisfied with the boost number and signal improvement, proceed to step 7. To optimize the boost repeat steps 4 through 6.

7. Mount the system

The mounting bracket for the Smart Signal Booster can be installed either on a flat surface or in a corner. Use either the supplied double sided tape or screw kit (you do not need both). If you are using tape, make sure it is placed to extend below the mounting bracket for easy removal. Attach the Smart Signal Booster to the mounting bracket. Remember, make sure the Smart Signal Booster is mounted vertically.

Tape removal (as needed)

To prevent damage when removing the mount from wall, it is important to never pull the tape strip towards you. Pull the tape slowly in straight down direction/motion.
