How to Connect to a Signal Booster?

Many people assume that the connection process between a signal booster and a cell phone is the same as connecting to a WiFi network, WiFi hotspot, or a Bluetooth device.

To connect to a WiFi network or hotspot you would go into the setting of your phone, select the correct network, and enter the correct password. Without the correct password, you can’t connect. This process must be done every time you get a new device. Even though passwords are for your security, they can be a little inconvenient at times, especially when you forget them.

Connecting two devices over Bluetooth is a little simpler. You would go through the settings of your phone and select the device you want to connect with. Usually, this would be done with a car, wireless headphones, wireless speakers, and smartwatches. Like WiFi networks, the process has to be repeated when connecting to a different Bluetooth device.

The connection process between a cell phone signal booster is even simpler. After the signal booster has been installed, it will start boosting your existing signal, creating a strong cellular coverage in your home, office, or vehicle.

Your phone will automatically pick up on the boosted signal. You don’t have to go through your settings to connect to the booster. Even better, there is no password required (that’s one less password you need to remember). In addition, any device that is within the signal boosters coverage area will automatically see an improvement in their signal strength.

It’s as simple as plug-and-play.

Quick Overview on How Signal Boosters Work

Signal booster systems (also known as a signal extenders or cell phone signal repeaters) improve the communication between your phone and the closest cell towers. They are made up of three components to do so: an outside antenna, an amplifier, and an inside antenna.

To work, there must be an existing cellular signal outside. The external antenna pulls in the outside signal, the amplifier amplifies the signal, and the indoor antenna rebroadcasts it into your home, office, or vehicle.

Coax cables are used to connect the three components together. The cables eliminate the obstructions (building material, walls, doors, etc.) that block the signal from penetrating into your home, office, or vehicle.

After everything has been connected, all of the devices within the booster's range will experience better cell service, fewer dropped calls, and better signal.

In short, boosters work passively.
