Getting Sail Installed at Your Home

Posted September 15, 2017 by Kevin Fisher

Standard Installation is FREE!


  • Installing a Sail antenna on a 1-story or 2-story rooftop.
  • Use of a standard penetrating roof or eave mount.
  • Running an Ethernet cable from the rooftop device along an exterior wall and entering the house at nearest point. 
  • Connecting the Wi-Fi router and PoE power adapter at the point of entry into the house near an exterior wall.

Inside your home we connect the Sail antenna to the PoE power adapter. A power strip is provided to protect equipment from electrical surges. Either a Sail router or your own router is connected to the PoE power adapter. All Sail equipment should remain plugged in at all times to maintain your internet connection.

The PoE power adapter is not required at most multi-family buildings. A power/surge protector is provided only if a Sail router is selected.

Non-Standard Installation

Installing at 3-story homes, trimming trees and providing special roof mounting systems may incur additional costs. 


  • Installation on a 3-story rooftop. A lift truck is required. 
  • Minimal tree trimming to remove branches that obstruct line of sight. Not tree removal. 
  • Non-penetrating roof mount.

If you have special interior wiring needs, such as running the cable through an attic or crawl space to reach an interior area of your home, you will need to have this work performed prior to your installation.
