Repeaters boost RF signals. Compact, unobtrusive repeaters go unnoticed plugged into ordinary AC outlets in halls or utility rooms strategically placed around the property. Repeaters receive and verify signals from the transmitters and re-transmit the signals for reception by the single receiver located in the clubhouse or other central location.
Installing a radio repeater is a quick and easy process. In short, the repeater is attached to the wall with two provided screws, and the cable that is also provided is used to supply power to the repeater from a plug-in wall cube power supply, as shown below.
Unpack all the materials and observe the two protusions on the top side of the repeater housing.
Using a small screwdriver, open the repeater housing by gently prying off the back panel.
Using caution to avoid touching the circuit board, hold the bottom portion of the repeater case in place on the wall next to the intended AC outlet. Using a sharp object, mark the upper-right and the lower-left screw holes.
Set aside the repeater housing and drill two 7/32” holes at the two marked locations. Remove two plastic anchors from the provided screw kit and insert them all the way into the drilled
Carefully break out and discard the wiring “trap door” on the left side of the repeater for the power cable to feed through.
Remove approximately 3/4” of one end of the outer jacket of the supplied cable and approximately 3/16” of insulation from the red and black wires. Using a small, pointed, phillips-head screwdriver, turn both power supply terminal screws about three turns counterclockwise until the top of the screws reach the top of the blue terminal block. Insert the stripped ends of the red and black wires into the open side of the power connector block and re-tighten the screws while ensuring both the red and black wires are held firmly in place by the connector block. Polarity (color coding) does not matter.
Hold the open housing bottom of the repeater in place on the wall, insert two provided screws into the screw holes on the top-right and bottom-left and tighten them (only hand-tight) to hold the repeater in place. Plug in the wall cube power supply. Approximate the cable path and cut the cable to an appropriate length.
Next, remove approximately 1” of the outer jacket of the other end of the supplied cable and approximately 1/4” of insulation from the red and black wires. Insert the stripped ends of the red and black wires under the wall cube power connection screws and re-tighten the screws while ensuring both the red and black wires are held firmly in place. Again, polarity (color coding) does not matter.
Remove the center screw from the outlet cover, keeping the outlet cover in place, then plug in the wall cube power supply.
Secure the wall cube power supply (and the outlet cover) using the furnished black screw.
Plug the battery connector (which should have been received unplugged to preserve battery life) into its mating connector.
To finish, snap the cover back onto the repeater and adjust the position of the power cable. Secure the cable if desired.
