* Effective wireless coverage may vary depending on the wireless device’s output power, antenna gain, antenna alignment, receiving sensitivity, and radio interference. Additionally environmental factors such as weather conditions, physical obstacles, and other considerations may affect performance. For optimal results, we recommended consulting a professional installer for site survey, safety precautions, and proper installation.
