WeBoost Home Complete Review – 2020

Hey everybody, it’s Craig here and I’m here today to talk about the, We Boost Home Complete. It’s a new product from We Boost, it’s a cell phone booster and I’ve used their products before and they’re wonderful. And they asked me to test their product here in Gunnison, Colorado. So, where I am is in the middle of nowhere on a hundred-acre ranch. And the property that you see behind me is a little bit over 5,000 square feet. And if you can see in the background over there, I have a power shed. And so, the reason why I’m excited to try out the Home Complete is because though we have a cell phone booster for the bulk of the property, one area that we really need it is in the power shed. We had a lightning strike; we’ve had a system failure and it’s a complicated system that you need phone support in order to really get the job done right.

We’re not going to get any service techs out here without four-wheel drive and without a big set of cajones. So, the best option that we have is to do the work ourselves, while we’re on the phone with our service techs walking us through the process. And so, the biggest problem that we’ve had thus far is that we don’t get cell service in that power shed. So what we want to try with this Home Complete with an expanded footprint as to how it works and where it works is install it in the main house and expand the coverage into the power shed to really boost our ability to live and survive out here. So, we’re excited to try the product and excited to show you how we do the install. How we test the product and then just give you some raw feedback as to how it actually works. So, let’s go in, I’ll give you a couple different vantage points of what we’re actually working with there. And then we’ll get to the install.

I wanted to give everybody just a 360-degree view of the property to truly give a sense that we are in the middle of nowhere. And at present, if I were to put on my phone, I would probably only have one bar of 3G oscillating to one bar of 1X. So, we’re truly in the middle of nowhere. We’ve got very few neighbors, we’ve got no year-round neighbors, so there’s no incentive for any significant cell phone tower development. So, the We Boost is really our only option to get the service that we need in order to do the work that we need to do.

This is an important angle for me to show you because this is actually what got me excited about the new product, the Home Complete from We Boost. So, you can see that I have a power shed, I have solar panels that are rotating and then you have the house in the background. So, the challenge that we have for example, is that right now the rotating solar panels, which track are supposed to track with the sun, they’re not operating. We’ve got a capable crew here that are able to fix those things. But we do need guidance from the service techs that manufactured the rotation system. So, we need to be able to call them and act in real time with their instructions. Also, I need to be able to get into that power shed and manage some of the operations in there under the guidance of the service techs, the phone techs And I can’t do that right now, even with the We Boost 4G connect that we have in the main house, we’ve got zero signal here. So, it’s going to be really, really exciting to see when we install the Home Complete, whether we have access to phone signal here and it will be a game changer for us.

Right now, I’m inside the power shed. We’ve got a charge controller, we’ve got inverters. We have a control panel right here that allows us to do the programming and we have a whole mess of other hardware issues in here. So this is where I need to be able to be on the phone with a service tech to make sure that I’m routing the 1.21 gigawatts of power that we got going through this baby, in the right way to not blow things up or to just properly operate. And this is a complicated, menu driven system, which is a rabbit hole and challenging to really figure out what the options are. So, having phone support here is absolutely critical to being able to stay out here all year round, which is what we are trying to do, which is what we are doing. But we’d like to be able to do it in more comfort than less comfort.
