Curtis Instruments has a manufacturing unit and office in Mt. Kisko, New York. They had a major problem with poor cell phone reception there, which was hampering inter-staff communication. They approached SignalBooster.com to solve the issue.
Curtis Instruments is the world's leading manufacturer of motor speed controllers and instruments for battery-powered vehicles. Curtis is a well-known brand in the industry, known for their timers and counters that measure and record equipment use. They make top-of-the-line all solid-state gauges and other critical products such as high-efficiency DC converters and other accessories for "green" electric vehicles.
Bob Baker runs the Curtis instruments office in Mt. Kisko, New York. The Curtis Instruments office is spread across two buildings. This is a great place to work at, but with one major issue – weak cellular reception.
Bob had been hearing complaints about weak cell phone signals from his staff for years now. This is despite the fact that he had installed a small weBoost Connect 4G-X system many years ago (see all consumer grade weBoost Connect series listed).
He got in touch with us at SignalBooster.com and asked us if there was anything we could do to salvage the situation. During the first inspection, our engineers studied the buildings and their layout.
It was clear that the weBoost Connect 4G-X wasn't powerful enough for the size of the building and its installation was not fully thought through. That had to be replaced.
There were two buildings with very week signal inside. This was because of the concrete and metal construction that came in the way of the cellular signals, blocking them from reaching the cell phones of the staff that were inside the building.
That is why there was a major issue with dropped calls at Curtis and it was virtually impossible to get a consistent 3 to 5-bar signal.
Curtis Instruments chose SignalBooster.com for cell signal solution based on our experience and expertise. We proceeded to install SureCall Force 5 2.0 inside both buildings. Building A needed coverage for 45,000 square feet and Building B for 29,000 square feet.
We installed 9 Internal antennas in Building A and 5 Internal antennas in Building B. SureCall Force 5 2.0 was chosen based on location-specific requirements, acceptable price point, and being a very good alternative to DAS. SureCall is one of the leading manufacturers of cell phone signal boosters for the industry. They provide a 3-year warranty and 5-year extended warranty with this device.
The SureCall Force 5 2.0 was awarded the 2017 Commercial Integrator BEST and 2017 CE Pro BEST awards. It is a smart device meaning it comes with the SureCall's Sentry remote monitoring hardware as well as an integrated remote access for adjusting and optimizing the performance of the device from a smartphone using a mobile app.
This device boosts voice, text and 4G LTE signals for all carriers in United States. It increases the signal strength over 25,000 sq. ft in normal conditions and up to 100,000 sq. ft in perfect conditions. It gives you a downlink power of +17 dBm and solves the problem of dropped calls or missed calls to a large extent.
After Installation of the SureCall Force 5 2.0, things have improved significantly at Curtis Instruments. The staff no longer complains about dropped calls. They get a reasonable cell phone signal strength of 3 to 5 bars in both buildings. Bob couldn't be happier about it and says this has made his life a lot easier!
