Panic Button Suggestion Needed


Recommended Posts

He never said cost wad an issue, and it's his mom so no expense should be spared. It's certainly fits the requirements.

It's not like she would be in the basement.

Not at all, since it doesn't work indoors.  Why does this have to be repeated?  Satellite signals don't go through obstructions.  It doesn't meet any of the rest of the list of needs except for being waterproof.

Got a call from one of the companies.  My phone carrier is a problem.  Century Link has outdated hardware which won’t work with landline based systems and we aren’t in a cell coverage area.  I’ll use this to confront the issue that are phone hardware hasn’t been upgraded while others around us (with a different carrier) has state of the art phone service.

Have you considered and/or tested a cellular repeater mounted outdoors or in the attic?

 


Yes.  Minimally effective (only boosted flip phone signal strength).

Which tells me your testing was incorrect, or you got an incorrect repeater, or something like that.  Or your flip phone is on a different carrier?  Or you did a shit job of mounting the outside antenna.

A booster only enhances what you can get.  We get one bar on a flip phone.  Smart phones need 3G or better.  Straight from the tech support for the booster.  It was improving signal strength but it wouldn’t pull in 3G.

Yup, you don't understand how any of this works, and are making incorrect decisions based on that.
