The Home 4G is an ideal solution for anyone who is looking for an affordable solution and only needs to boost signal in a small area, like a desk or table, all the way up to the size of a room.
How it Works
The weBoost Home 4G system uses a directional panel outside antenna that's either mounted to a pole (not included) at or above the roofline of your home or office or to the side of the house or building. Ideally the outside panel antenna is positioned in a location where it can receive the strongest possible outside signal, which it then sends over a cable to the Home 4G amplifier inside of the home or building. The amplifier will boost the received signal and then pass it over a cable to the included desktop inside antenna, which will broadcast the boosted signal into the area of your home or office where you need better cell signal.
The entire process also works in reverse, so you get a strong and reliable connection back to your carrier.
The weBoost Home 4G includes a flat cable in case you need to run the included RG6 cable from the outside antenna under a window, instead of drilling a hole in the building. A barrel connector is also included, in case you don't need the flat cable.
If you're not able to mount an antenna outside of your home or office, then you can purchase the additional Panel Antenna Window Mount and suction cup the external panel antenna to an externally facing window where you get the best existing cell signal. You'll most likely need more separation between the antennas than if you mounted the panel antenna outside, but this will at least give you the opportunity to boost signal without an outside antenna.
Estimated Inside Coverage
The strength of your existing outside signal, measured in the location where you plan to mount the outside antenna, has a direct impact on the amount of inside coverage you'll get from a signal booster. The table below shows how much coverage you may get depending on your outside signal strength:
|Existing Outside Signal Strength||Estimated Inside Coverage|
|Strong (5 Bars)||Up to 1,500 sq ft|
|Medium (3-4 Bars)||Up to 1,000 sq ft|
|Weak (1-2 Bars)||Up to 150 sq ft|
|None (0 Bars)||No Coverage|
Please Note: It is important to remember that there are many factors that impact the size of the inside coverage area, so actual results may vary from these estimates.
If you need more coverage than the weBoost Home 4G will provide due to a weak outside signal, then the weBoost Connect 4G is going to be a better choice for you. It has a more powerful amplifier and higher grade antennas to provide more inside coverage with the same strength outdoor signal. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like more information about this system.

The weBoost Home 4G has three different installation options for mounting the window mount panel antenna. The easiest option is to mount the panel antenna using the included suction cups to the inside of an external window. While this is the most convenient option, it also gives you the smallest coverage area from the system and should only be used if the other options are not possible. The next option is to mount it on a wall outside of the home or office, which will give you more coverage, but also requires you to run a cable from the external antenna into the building. The last option is to install the panel antenna on a pole on the roof of the building. This installation option will give you the best coverage, but requires you to install a vertical pole on the roof and aim the panel antenna.
Additionally, before you begin, we recommend a soft installation initially, where you don't permanently mount components, drill holes or finalize cable runs until you're sure that the system is performing to the level that you would like. Once you've tested out antenna and component locations, and are satisfied with the results, then you can go ahead and permanently install everything. Finally, read through the entire set of installation instructions both here and in the included manual before beginning, and feel free to call us with any questions before you proceed.
To install, just follow these steps:
- If you decide to install the "outside" panel antenna in the window, then you'll need to first determine which window has the best initial signal. Use your phone to check each window for the strongest signal, and then locate the external antenna in the window with the strongest signal. Connect the included RG6 cable to the antenna.
If you decide to install the external panel antenna on the exterior wall of the building, then use your cell phone to determine which wall of the building gets the best signal, and mount it in that location. Connect the included RG6 cable and run into the building.
If you decide to install the external panel antenna on the roof of the building, you'll first need to determine the side of the building that gets the strongest signal. Once that's been identified, then you'll need to install a vertical pole on the roof of that side of the building to mount the antenna to, such as the pole mount assembly, which you can purchase from UberSignal or something similar from a local hardware store. Once you have the pole installed, attach the external panel antenna and point away from the building, then connect the included RG6 cable and run into the building. You may be able to enter the building through a vent or soffet, but may need to drill a hole if no other opening is available.
- If you've purchased a lighting surge protector, then connect that now to the RG6 cable, and then connect the 2ft cable to the "Outside Antenna" port of the amplifier, otherwise directly connect the outside cable to the "Outside Antenna" port. To the inside of the amplifier, attach the cable that is connected to the inside tower antenna, and locate the tower antenna on a desk or table facing towards the area that needs boosted signal. Once all of the components are connected, power on the amplifier by plugging it in. As it's powering up, you should see the lights flashing, and then check to see that they turn solid green. If they are blinking or are any other color than green, you'll need to troubleshoot the setup by consulting the manual or contact us for help.
- If you mounted the outside antenna outside on a pole, you'll need to aim it for best results. Start with the antenna high on the roof pointed in one direction. Turn on the system and have an inside helper inside stand near the inside antenna and take a signal reading with their phone in field test mode. Rotate the antenna 45 degrees and then pause for 60 seconds. After the pause, the person inside should take another signal reading, and then you can repeat the process. Each time your partner checks the signal strength, also check to make sure there aren't any warning lights on the amplifier. After you've gone all the way around, mount the antenna facing in the direction with the strongest signal.
The included manual is very helpful and we recommend reading through it before beginning the installation. If you run into any issues, feel free to contact us for help.
