How to install Signal Repeater Booster Extender

Hi I have a generic chinese wireless alarm system. Because some sensors are far away from the central unit, I bought a Signal Repeater to extend the wireless zone, but I can't figure out how it works. Does anyone have one of these and knows how it functions?

433MHz Signal Repeater Booster Extender to Wireless Range 300 1000M for Alarm | eBay

It came with a paper that says:

"Signal Repeater (433 MHZ) guideline

About the 4 dipswitch of the signal repeater, they are for setting the resistence of alarm accessories which need to amplify the signal."

I see the switches, but have no idea which one I should set. sometimes if I fumble with them the led is green, other times is flashing red, but the sensors that are more far awauy from the central unit continue to not function.

Can anybody help me?

On your existing alarm system do the sensors have dip switches inside them? If so have you tried setting the repeater the same?

Typically, range extenders are made to conform to the default coding of a particular receiver system. There's really no such thing as a generic range extender for security wireless. If your range extender isn't from the same brand family as your transmitters and receiver, then it's not going to work.
