Note: This product must be used with the GE 45129 Wireless Control Center or with the GE 45142 Wireless Control Center plus Starter Kit (each sold separately). The GE 45138 Signal Repeater can work alongside other wireless Choice Alert components as part of a GE Choice Alert Wireless Alarm System.

Part of the GE Choice Alert Wireless Alarm System
The GE 45138 Signal Repeater is part of the GE Choice Alert Wireless Alarm System line of products. Cost-effective and easy to install, Choice Alert components offer wireless operation, multi-zone coverage, home and away settings, all-weather function, and expandability for complete home protection.

With wireless capabilities, Choice Alert products require no complicated wiring, drilling or expensive installation costs. And because they are designed to be part of a self-contained system, there are no monthly usage charges. System components are simple enough for anyone to use, and they can be combined to provide a customized blanket of protection over your entire property.

Wireless Control Center for Device Monitoring
The entire Choice Alert Security System is designed around the Wireless Control Center, the system's hub. The Control Center monitors each and every component that is wirelessly connected to it. As many as four components can be programmed in each of four zones, giving you the security of up to 16 devices to guard your entire home, including sensors for doors, windows, gates, water leaks, and motion detection.

The Wireless Control Center allows you to secure your system with a custom four-digit code that can be changed at any time. Plus, the center lets you control many system features. For example, you can select 'Home' mode for an instant alarm and 'Away' mode for a delayed alarm. In addition to the armed alarm system, the Control Center also offers a visible and audible Zone Notification alert system (with a choice of continuous alert or single chime mode) and a dedicated alert zone (Zone 4). The center wirelessly transmits and receives signals up to 150 feet.

Additionally, the Wireless Control Center features a low-battery indicator that will alert you when battery power is low in a specific zone, so you'll know exactly when to replace the batteries in every one of your components.

Combine Components for Total Home Coverage
To complement the Signal Repeater, there are several components available for use with the Wireless Control Center, including a door/window sensor, a motion detector, a secondary audio alarm siren, a water leak device, a garage door sensor, and a Silent Alert LED indicator. Add up to 16 sensors and give yourself the peace of mind that only complete home protection can provide.

Plug-and-Play Installation for Additional Wireless Range
Ideal for large spaces, detached garages, and multiple-storey homes, the GE 45138 Choice Alert Signal Repeater easily adds 150 feet of wireless range to your Choice Alert sensor and Wireless Control Center--for a total distance of up to 300 feet. Where necessary, add a Signal Repeater to any sensor in your Choice Alert Security System.

Installation is as easy as plugging the Signal Repeater into a standard electrical outlet and pairing it with the Wireless Control Center; the process takes just minutes. You should place the Signal Repeater in a dry area, such as a garage, hallway, entryway, bedroom, or any other area that is not prone to moisture.

The GE 45138 Choice Alert Signal Repeater is UL-listed and backed by a one-year limited warranty.

GE 45138 Signal Repeater - Wireless vs. Hardwired Advantage! June 7 2010
By Mark Murray - Published on
Verified Purchase
For a 2-bedroom apartment, may not need this GE45138 repeater. However, for any size beyond this or for multiple levels, you will definitely need to place perhaps multiple Signal Repeaters between essentially all >25ft. 3V cell sensors (i.e., garage and window/door sensors), along with the 9V battery motion sensors, if those placed more than 50-ft away from any GE Control Center. Each repeater takes up ½ of an AC duplex outlet, but includes a test button with LED indicator. If you have a choice, I suggest placing these repeaters closer to the sensors vs. midway between sensor and any you're essentially 120VAC boosting the weak 3VDC sensor cell transmission.

And these repeaters are not just plug-&-play, either: i.e., just by tilting the antennae 60 degrees vs. 90 degrees will often make the difference between bypassing interior wall wooden studs or fire-blocking to make this repeater boost sensors reliably 24-hrs. a day. If you're a "technoid", like me, and don't mind playing with your system---no problem. Conversely, if you're easily frustrated, you should probably avoid this GE Choice Alert system entirely, and just spend about $75/month for a professionally installed hard-wired service. But professional systems false-alarms occasionally too. Plus, then you will usually need to also spend $148/yr. just for a city alarm permit, plus likely get $75.00 city citations per more than 2 false-alarms per month.

My overall advice for technoids is to purchase multiple GE45142 controllers + GE45137 as a basis for designing your own "silent-alert" (with non GE phone dialer) vs. "audible-alarm" system and get creative, remembering that the 3VDC cell sensors will not have the radio-transmission range as compared to 12VDC equivalent Skylink sensors. But GE system generally much cheaper, plus GE's Controllers and ordinary 9V motion-detectors work great! Just remember, you'll have the flexibility of multiple and movable control centers as its primary advantage (vs. hardwired). Additionally, while the system sets up in minutes, you'll probably spend hours tweaking it over time. But that's the fun part!

Happy with this Alarm system. I just wanted something that would alert me while inside my home. This works perfect for my need.

This alarm system kept going off even with the repeater. The repeater really only worked about half of the time too. All-in-all this is not a good alarm system.

The sensors on the basement walkout doors, which were furthest away, always indicating a weak battery. The distance between the doors and the base station was only about 35 feet, but it was a change of floor level and multiple walls between. I installed the signal repeater between the doors and the base station. It eliminated the weak battery signal without changing the batteries. Its been installed about one month now.

This worked to extend the feeble range of my parent's wireless alarm system. It allows the system to work as one would expect.
