Table Mount Your Wireless Signal Repeater
Congratulations on your purchase of the Motorola homesight™
Wireless Signal Repeater. The Wireless Signal Repeater can act as an
amplifier to stretch the communication distance from your Wireless
System Controller to your system’s wireless sensor devices.
The Motorola Wireless Signal Repeater is constructed of UV-resistant
ABS plastic. Therefore, please consider the following points when
mounting the repeater:
The repeater can be placed on any level surface using the included
tapabletop adapter. To attach the adapter, press the adapter into the
holes in the back of the repeater.
The Motorola Wireless Repeater will work with up to 16 devices at a
time.
Using Your Signal Repeater
•
Do not install the repeater where it is subjected directly to the
elements.
•
This device's communication range is up to 18 m from the
Wireless System Controller in a typical home, depending on the
number of obstacles. These can include metal framing, thick walls,
and other wireless devices operating at 433 MHz. It is
recommended that different positions be tried for optimal results.
The repeater must be placed between the Wireless System Controller
and the device whose signal you wish it to repeat. When positioning,
avoid obstructions and metallic structures that might interfere with its
functionality.

How It Works
The Wireless Signal Repeater can communicate with the Wireless
System Controller to a distance of up to 18 m indoors. The unit relays
the signals to and and from the Wireless System Controller and a
wireless device,
effectively
doubling the
communication
distance.

extends deeper into the frame than can be seen; therefore, ensure
your screw is beyond the glass before drilling.

a.
In the homesight software, click on System Settings.
b.
Select “Device Discovery” from the menu, then select “Start
Discovery”.
c.
After a few seconds, the System Controller will find and
register your Repeater and details of the device will appear
on the screen.
Position the Repeater, using either the tabletop base, or by
following the instructions for wall mounting.
Features and Specifications
Your repeater can either be mounted on a wall or sit on a level surface.

Using the supplied double-sided tape, peel one side of the paper
strip and place it on the back of the repeater. Peel the other side
of the tape and place the repeater in the
location desired.
You can also mount the sensor more
securely using the screws in the hardware
kit. Using the holes on the drilling template
found later in this guide, mark the position
1.6 mm
maximum
of the holes to be drilled. For drywall or
other composite surfaces, use a 5.6 mm
drill bit. Drill a hole for each of the mounting screws and insert a
plastic wall anchor into each hole. For other solid surfaces, use a
1.6 mm drill bit. Drill a pilot hole for each of the mounting screws.
Unable to discover the
device
•
Reposition the Repeater closer to the
System Controller.
•
Try another location free of
obstacles.
Make sure your Wireless System
Controller indicates discovery mode and
that the Repeater is powered from a
reliable AC source. Press the Discovery
button found on the back side of the unit.
If your mounting bracket is attached,
remove it to find the discovery button
hole. If this continues to fail, you will
need to try another location for the
repeater. You may also try a hard reset
by holding down the Discovery button
while powering on the Repeater. After
resetting the Repeater, please try to
discover it again.

Quick Start Guide
Wireless Repeater
Mounting tools: Screwdriver, electric drill, or hand drill. On hard
surfaces, Motorola recommends that you pre-drill 12.7 mm deep pilot
holes with a drill bit slightly smaller than the mounting screws before
securing the repeater to the surface. When mounting a repeater on soft
surfaces like sheetrock, use an awl to punch holes in the material
slightly smaller than the plastic anchors included in the hardware
mounting kit.
