The zBoost ZB545 is a complete dual band Cellular/PCS repeater kit that comes ready to plug and play. All cables and antennas included!

Cell phone antennas and amplifiers are frequency specific (more info).

The zBoost SOHO boosts cell phone signals for voice calls and text for all major carriers. zBoost SOHO captures the reliable cellular signal you have outdoors and rebroadcasts it indoors, up to 2,500 square feet, so you can enjoy clearer, faster and more reliable service without interruption.

Everything you need is included: amplifier base unit, indoor antenna, power supply, 50 ft. of RG6 cable, external antenna, and mounting hardware.

Benefits Include:

  • High performing dual band signal booster - coverage up to 2,500 sq. ft. (up to 64 dB system gain)
  • Ideal for small homes that have reliable outside signal
  • Reduces dropped and missed calls and can provide faster 3G data performance for multiple simultaneous users
  • Boosts performance on iPhone™, Samsung™, Android™ and other phones and mobile devices
  • Automatically operates at maximum gain – no manual adjustments needed
  • Extends phone battery life - phone uses less power when the indoor signal is stronger
  • Easy to set up - all hardware included
  • Designed in Silicon Valley – Made in North America

Setup overview:

The package includes everything you need: base unit, indoor antenna, power supply, RG-6 coax cable (50 ft.), external antenna and mounting hardware. The omnidirectional external antenna receives signals from multiple cell towers.

 



Before installing, please note the following important factors in determining your zBoost performance:

  • At least 15 vertical feet is needed between the External Antenna (receives the outside signal) and the Indoor Antenna (rebroadcasts the signal indoors). Separation less than 15 vertical feet will result in decreased performance.
  • Keep the External Antenna at least 3 feet above any metal.

 

FIRST: Mount the External Antenna. Choose a location for the External Antenna using your cell phone to determine the area of strongest signal.

The coverage your zBoost provides is largely determined by the quality of signal received by the External Antenna.

Choose one of the following options for placement of the External Antenna keeping in mind that if your best signal is one bar, your coverage will be limited to one small room.

 

Minimal Performance:
Place the External Antenna in the attic

 

Best Performance:
Place the External Antenna on roof

SECOND: Place the zBoost Base Unit where you want to create a Cell Zone.

Connect the Indoor Antenna to the Base Unit and place it where you need signal. For the widest possible signal area, position the Base Unit near the middle of a room. You may also mount it on an interior wall by first removing the bracket, screwing the bracket to a wall (screws not provided) then snapping the Base Unit back in place keeping the Indoor Antenna vertical. This Base Unit uses an omni-directional antenna that delivers signal in a circular pattern around the antenna.

The zBoost SOHO requires at least 15 feet of vertical separation between the Base Unit and the External Antenna. Generally, increasing this distance (up to 40 feet) will increase the performance and decreasing the distance will limit zBoost performance.

Keep the Base Unit off the floor and at least 2 feet away from other cords, metal objects or other wireless devices such as wireless routers or wireless access points. The zBoost SOHO performs best when there are no obstructions between the zBoost Base Unit and your mobile device.

THIRD: Run the provided coaxial cable between the Base Unit and External Antenna.

Use the provided 50 feet of RG-6 coaxial cable to connect the External Antenna and the Base Unit. To run the cable from exterior to interior through a window, an 8 inch window-entry cable is available for purchase (Part: YX030-08W). Should you need additional cable length, 15 foot extensions (Part: YX030-15W) are available. Please note: Cable longer than 65 feet is not recommended.

FOURTH: Connect the zBoost Base Unit to the provided power supply and plug into a power outlet.

When your zBoost system is in place and fully connected, walk throughout your home and verify that you are able to reliably place calls. If the signal strength has improved, your zBoost is working. Remember, coverage varies based on outdoor signal level, building construction, and antenna placement. Coverage in adjoining rooms will be reduced by walls and ceiling/floors.


Upon initial power up, the LED will cycle RED, GREEN and ORANGE for 30 seconds.  After, a series of GREEN flashes will indicate the quality of your setup. Following this, a solid GREEN light indicates normal conditions. If it is not solid GREEN, follow the instructions in the Base Unit LED Indicators section of the user manual. Adjustments may be needed to optimize performance. If you find the increased signal coverage is acceptable, however, no additional adjustments are needed..

Should you desire to improve coverage, you may:

  • Relocate the External Antenna in order to capture a better signal –higher is usually better.
  • Increase the distance between the Indoor Antenna and the External Antenna.
  • Purchase an upgrade antenna.
