An Analysis by various Customers on Wilson Electronics DT Cell Phone Signal Booster

A brew of both good and not too good buzz from the customers is ringing at the manufacturer’s ears. Well, most of the reviews are really amazing, in fact genuine and authentic. One of the customers switched from a Verizon cell phone to the Iphone 4 and AT&T. Coverage in their area, Sedona, AZ was not that great with AT&T. He was getting 1-2 bars and a few dropped calls with his new phone. But amazingly, when I went up on the roof, he discovered 5 bars on his phone. The very excited customer bought the Wilson unit and installed it as per their clear instructions, putting the antenna on the roof and the amplifier in my living room. It raised his bars in the house to 4-5 bars. Calls are clear and strong now. Most of the customers say if the signal is faint it will help a lot. Some only get 1x connection but without this they get almost no signal.

On the other hand, there are handful of customers who are really not happy with the product. They find the product to be worthless as they find no signal improvement in their area.

Nevertheless, huge numbers of customers simply love the product and find it to work the way they wanted and expected. Our excited customers are set to recommend this product to their friends and relatives.

I think one need not go sceptical reading about this product. The signal bars definitely shows a huge difference from no signal to 1 Bar to 3bars-4bars. And that’s a remarkable difference for many who used to literally miss their important calls and texts. In simple words, the manufacturers give the customers the guaranty that it works as it is been advertised.

 

SureCall Lightning Protector (SC-LP)

Using a lightning surge protector in most cases is always recommended, particularly if the kit is going be installed in an area with frequent lightning. The lightning surge protector should be installed in line with the cable and near the amplifier, and should be properly grounded.

The outside antenna is positioned high on your building, made of metal and exposed to the elements – very attractive to lightning! Thus placing the surge protector between the outside antenna and the amplifier unit is advised in order to protect the amplifier.

The SureCall lightning protector includes a lifetime warranty replacement gas discharge element. Insert the SC-LP protector to the outside antenna cable. Ground the unit and connect to the 2 ft. jumper cable. Then, connect the cable to the amplifier outside antenna port.

Signal Boosters – From Small Businesses to Large Home Applications

The SureCall Fusion5 kit is a Voice/3G/4G LTE signal booster system that is specially designed for small businesses, professionals and large home applications. The Fusion5 is built in such a way that it combines PCS and Cellular dual bands with both LTE and 4G AWS frequencies for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile voice and data reception. It covers an area of up to 10,000 square feet, 5-10 simultaneous users and is configurable for all indoor environments.

Adjustable and easy to use control dials are used to balance all carrier frequencies independently. The SureCall Fusion5 is approved by all major carriers and equipped with built in safeguards to completely eliminate interference to cell towers.

Features

  • Highest 4G data rate in the industry
  • Simple Plug and Play operation
  • Fully compliant with new FCC certification standards and approved by all major US carriers
  • Eight RSSI detectors for all inputs and outputs

The SureCall Fusion5 kit comes with a choice of two outside antennas:

The SC-288W Omni Outdoor Antenna has 4dB gain. Omni antennas receive and send signals in a 360º radius. They can receive signals from multiple cell towers and is best for boosting signal on many different carriers. They are excellent in most situations where the existing outside signal strength is moderate to strong.

The SC-230W-S Yagi Outdoor Antenna has up to 5dB of gain. It is a directional antenna which can reach cell towers up to 30 miles away. It needs to be set up pointing in the direction towards the cell tower, and because it is directional it will only pick up signal in that direction. It’s very powerful at picking up weak signal in one particular direction.

The SureCall Fusion5 kit also has a choice of two inside antennas:

The SC-222W Omni Dome Antenna is a multi-band omni-directional plastic dome antenna that gathers signals from all sides. It has 6dB gain and is designed for central locations with 360º coverage. The antenna range is dependent on three prime factors:

1) Physical obstructions

2) Power generated by the booster and

3) Reception from outside signal received and distributed by the outside antenna.

The SC-248W Panel Antenna is a directional antenna with up to 10dB gain. Panel antennas allow optimum reception to targeted areas. It can be mounted to either the wall or ceiling.

 

Strong outdoor signal (5 bars) up to 10,000 sq. ft. coverage
Medium outdoor signal (3-4 bars) up to 8,000 sq. ft. coverage
Weak outdoor signal (1-2 bars) up to 6,000 sq. ft. coverage
