zBoost® SOHO YX560Y User Guide
Overview
Preparing to Set Up Your zBoost Product
Thank you for choosing zBoost. You will now be able to use your cell phone INSIDE your home or
office. Gone are the days when you had to go to the window upstairs or walk outside to use your
cell phone. Like a skylight that brings sunlight into your home, zBoost transports and amplifies the
outdoor cellular signals into your home or office.
By following the easy instructions in this user guide, you will be Extending Cell Zones™ into your
home or office.
Why Indoor Signals Can Be Weak
There are several obstacles that can contribute to the poor reception you receive in your home or
office:
1.
Location of the Cell Phone Tower in Relation to Your Home/Office
While cell phone providers have tried to place cell phone towers to provide the best
overall coverage, local ordinances and terrain features can impose restrictions on where
these towers can be placed, thus, limiting the signal strength available at your location.
2.
Obstructions Caused by Buildings, Terrain and Trees
Cell phone signals can be completely blocked or reflected by buildings, walls, trees, hills
and other terrain features resulting in low signal strength.
3.
Energy Efficient Windows
These new windows can also affect signal penetration into the house
Tools Needed
The following tools are needed to set up zBoost:
•
#2 Phillips screwdriver
•
Cellular phone operating in the band supported by your zBoost® unit
•
Drill (may be required for outdoor or attic antenna placement)
Check for Signal Strength
Before placing a zBoost® in your home, make sure that you can place calls on the outside of your
home, in the attic, at roof level or wherever you plan to place the signal antenna. zBoost® can
only bring signal into your home when signal reaches the Signal Antenna. If there is no signal, the
zBoost® will not work for you.
Using your cell phone, place a call from an outdoor location to confirm that enough signal is present
to complete the call. If a weak signal is available at ground level, check the signal strength in your
attic or at roof level location where the signal will likely be stronger and where the Signal Antenna
can be placed for best performance.
If you can reliably make and receive calls outside your home, then zBoost® can bring the signal
into your home.
If only one signal bar is displayed on your cell phone outside, indoor coverage will be limited to
one small room. We recommend placing the Signal Antenna outside and/or purchasing a Wi-Ex®
upgrade Signal Antenna for increased coverage (see page iv).
Note
Cell phone signal bars are approximate and vary from
phone to phone. The number of bars can fluctuate
widely, depending on the location of the phone, the
position or angle of the phone, weather, etc. Most cell
phone signal meters update every 6 to 10 seconds. An
increase of only one bar typically indicates a 4x to 10x
signal increase.

IMPORTANT: Before Installing, Please Note These Important Factors in
Determining Performance
•
At least 15 vertical feet is needed between the Signal Antenna (receives the outside signal)
and the Base Unit Antenna (rebroadcasts the signal indoors). Separation less than 15 vertical
feet will result in decreased performance. See illustration below.
•
Keep the Signal Antenna at least 3 feet above any metal.
Securing Cable with a Drip Loop
If the Signal Antenna is placed outdoors, create a drip loop
with the coaxial cable at the point where the cable enters the
building through an outside wall. This can be done by twisting
and securing the cable into a loop (no less than 4” across)
near the entry point. This will help prevent moisture from
gathering at entry point and leaking into the building. Consult a
professional installer if you need more information.
Exterior Wall
15’ of vertical
separation
Coax Cable
Power Requirements
The Base Unit can be plugged into a standard 2 or 3 prong 110 VAC receptacle using the included
power supply. The power supply consumes less than 10W (less than 0.2A). For more information on
power consumption, see “Technical Specifications” on page 10.
Maximum Performance
Additional Cable Requirements
If the distance between the Signal Antenna and the Base Unit exceeds 50 feet, extension cables
are available on our website or at many home improvement and electronic stores. The included
cable is RG-6.
The total cable length should not exceed 65 feet unless upgraded cable and/or upgraded Signal
Antenna (see page iv) is used. A longer cable is helpful only if it allows you to place the Signal
Antenna in a location where you measure stronger signal.
Minimum Performance
Note
The zBoost YX560Y base unit MUST only be used
with the provided power adaptor. Use of other power
adaptors will void the warranty and may damage the
unit. Use of other equipment is not FCC approved.
Setting Up Your zBoost Signal Booster
Warning
Avoid placing the Signal Antenna near metal such as
wiring, A/C ducts, metal siding, truss plates, etc.
When connecting the cable to the antenna, run the
cable straight down from the antenna. Avoid draping
the coax near the antenna.
Grounding the Signal Antenna
If you decide to place the Signal Antenna outdoors, it must be properly grounded. (See page iv for a
recommended grounding kit).
The set up must be in accordance with Article 810 of the National Electric Code (NEC). A listed
antenna discharge unit must be provided for the lead-in coaxial cable per NEC article 8.10.20 or the
shield of the coaxial cable must be permanently and effectively grounded in accordance with NEC
article 8.10.21. Please consult a professional installer or electrician for more information.
FIRST: Mount the Signal Antenna
Choosing the best location for the Signal Antenna provides the best performance and the largest
area of improved signal. Choose a location for the Signal Antenna using your cell phone to
determine the area of strongest signal - typically found outside, above the roofline or in an attic.
Maximum performance will be achieved when the antenna is aimed at the strongest signal from
your wireless provider. If you know the direction of your provider’s tower, simply point the antenna
in that direction. If you are unsure of the location of the nearest tower, loosely secure the antenna to
the mounting surface or mast to allow adjustment or rotation around mast. Before securing antenna
hardware, take care in finding the optimum angle at which to aim the antenna – See Antenna
Aiming section on page 7 for further instruction.
The antenna must be mounted horizontally and also remain at least 3 feet
from any metal objects such as pipes, metal siding, A/C unit etc. Keep in
mind that if your best signal is one bar, your coverage will be limited to one
small room.
► To mount antenna to a pole: Attach bracket end of antenna to
pole bracket as pictured. Use U-Bolt to secure bracket to pole and
fasten.
► To mount antenna to a flat surface: Attach bracket end of
antenna desired surface. Secure bracket using provided screws. The
of the U-Bolt is not necessary for this option.

SECOND: Place the zBoost Base Unit
Note
Connect the Base Unit Antenna to the Base Unit and place it where you need signal. For the widest
possible signal area, position the Base Unit near the middle of a room. This Base Unit uses an
omni-directional antenna that delivers signal in a circular pattern around the antenna.
Cell phone signal bars are approximate and vary from
phone to phone. The number of bars can fluctuate
widely, depending on the location of the phone, the
position or angle of the phone, weather, etc. Most cell
phone signal meters update every 6 to 10 seconds. An
increase of only one bar typically indicates a 4x to 10x
signal increase.
The zBoost system requires at least 15 feet of vertical separation between the Base Unit and the
Signal Antenna. Generally, increasing this distance (up to 40 feet) will increase the performance
and decreasing the distance will limit zBoost performance.
Note: The Base Unit can be easily mounted on a wall by first removing the Silver bracket from
the Base Unit (see “zBoost Base Unit Assembly” on page 6) and using 2 mounting screws (not
provided) to affix to wall - keeping the antenna vertical.
THE BEST INDICATOR OF PRODUCT PERFORMANCE
IS THE ABILITY TO RELIABLY PLACE AND RECEIVE
CALLS WHERE YOU COULD NOT BEFORE.
Keep the Base Unit off the floor and at least 3 feet away from other cords, metal objects or other
wireless devices such as wireless routers or wireless access points. zBoost performs best when
there are no obstructions between the zBoost Base Unit and your mobile device.
THIRD: Run Coaxial Cable Between the Base Unit and Signal Antenna
Use the provided 50 feet of RG-6 coaxial cable to connect the Signal Antenna and the Base Unit.
Run the cable along a descending pipe or through a wall that leads closest to the location of the
Base Unit.

FOURTH: Connect the zBoost Base Unit to the Power Supply
FIFTH: Antenna Aiming
Connect the zBoost Base Unit to the power supply and plug into a power outlet. When your zBoost
system is in place and fully connected, walk throughout your home or office and verify that you are
able to reliably place calls. If the signal strength has improved, your zBoost is working.
To get the maximum benefit, you will want to take special care to point the antenna in the direction
of the best signal for your wireless service provider.
1.
Place your cell phone on a non-metal surface which is 6-8 feet from the Base Unit Antenna.
Remember, coverage varies based on outdoor signal level, building construction, and antenna
placement. Coverage in adjoining rooms (next to, above, or below) will be reduced by walls and
ceiling/floors.
2.
Upon initial power up, a solid GREEN light should appear indicating normal conditions. If a RED
light appears, adjustments may be needed to optimize performance. If you find the increased signal
coverage is acceptable, however, no additional adjustments are needed. See “zBoost Base Unit
Light Indicators” on page 9) for more information.
Turn the signal booster on and wait 30 seconds. Note the number of signal bars displayed on
your cell phone. For best results, you want your phone to display in the middle of the signal
meter range or less so that it can go up as you rotate the Signal Antenna to the optimum
direction. If it is reading too high, move the phone farther from the base unit antenna.
3.
Record the number of signal bars (or range) ________(A) on your cell phone. Leave the
phone in the same place and pointing in the same direction for the following steps.
Note the direction of the antenna starting position_________________________.
4.
Rotate the antenna mast 90 degrees and then record the phone signal bars _________(B).

Continue to rotate the antenna mast another 90 degrees in the same direction and record the
phone signal bars _________(C).
6.
Again, rotate the antenna mast another 90 degrees in the same direction and again record the
phone signal bars _________(D).
7.
Look for the highest reading above. Set the antenna to that position and tighten the antenna
mast.
8.
If you desire to optimize further, then look for the two highest signal bar readings above and
move the antenna between these two points to find the highest signal bars reading.
9.
Once you have determined the highest reading position tighten the antenna bracket hardware.

Solution: Increase space between base unit
and antenna.
Solid RED
When your zBoost system is in place and fully connected, you should walk throughout the room
and see that you are able to reliably place calls. If the signal strength and cellular data speeds have
improved, your zBoost is working.
Remember, coverage varies based on outdoor signal level, building construction, and antenna
placement. Coverage in adjoining rooms may be reduced.
Improving Your Coverage Area
Should you desire to improve coverage, you may:
•
Relocate the Signal Antenna in order to capture a better signal – higher is usually better and
outside is better than inside.
•
Increase the distance between the Panel Antenna and the Signal Antenna.
•
Purchase an upgrade antenna available at www.Wi-Ex.com.
NOTE: The zBoost YX560Y requires at least 15 feet of vertical separation between the Base
Unit and the Signal Antenna. Generally, increasing this distance (up to 40 feet) will increase the
performance and decreasing the distance will limit zBoost performance.
