Typical Installation Tools
|RJ45 Cable Checker||Network cable (26/8 flat wire) continuity checker|
|A simple network wire tester is an invaluable tool when running flat wire to accessories or to the controller. It detects continuity, opens, shorts and crossed RJ45 conductors. Available at Home Depot and Amazon for about $80 and $45 respectively.|
Both testers include at least one remote module enabling the user to test cabling in the wall without an assistant.
The "Klein Scout Pro 2" includes 5 additional modules with unique numeric ID's for network, and coaxial cable testing. The Scout Jr. only supports RJ45 network testing and 1 remote module.
Both testers are available as regularly stocked items at local Home Depots and Amazon.com.
