SureCall launched Flare, its latest cell phone signal booster at CES. A CES Innovation Award Honoree, Flare integrates an indoor antenna with the signal booster, which simplifies setup and maximizes the ability to strengthen cell signals.
Designed for use in a home or small office, the Flare combines the internal antenna with the booster, making installation easy. The unique internal structure design allows for an omnidirectional antenna that enables the best emission, enhancing cellular signal for voice, text, and 4G LTE data for all North American cell carriers.
The booster kit includes an outdoor antenna that captures signal from the cell tower, amplifies it, and re-broadcasts the signal indoors to an area of weak or non-existent cellular coverage. The Flare supports multiple users simultaneously and covers one to two rooms of a home or small office, with up to 2,500 square feet of total coverage.
“We’re seeing more and more households getting rid of landlines. At the same time, new energy efficient construction materials being used in homes and buildings are inhibiting cell phone signals from penetrating inside,” said Hongtao Zhan, CEO of SureCall. “As we move toward a cord-free lifestyle, we’re excited to offer a reliable, aesthetically pleasing solution to help people stay connected, and are honored to be recognized at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.”
A recent study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cited that nearly half of American homes no longer have landlines. Of the 21,000 households that participated in the study, 47 percent cited they were a cell-only home and 41 percent noted they used both cell and landline. Additionally, DeadCellZones.com has reported that an estimated half of homes in America lack seamless coverage throughout the house, and may require additional solutions to remedy the issue.
SureCall’s Flare will be available Q1 2017 for $399 MSRP.
