Our testing focus is on the manufacture of innovative, high quality test equipment for the computer, datacomm, audio/video and security marketplaces. We are known for our creative approach to testing.... breaking the mold to provide our customers with tools that do more and cost less. Although we are best known as the maker of the low cost Low Voltage Pro (uniquely web upgradeable) and the Real World Certifier (tests the speed parameters of a cable plus stores 250 test reports), we have brought similar creativity to the Power Panel (for VoIP and IP camera installers); the ProTone Wire Locator with its illuminated tip; the TVR entry level LAN tester; the Camera Wizard CCTV tester with Vpp display; and other powerful, affordable testers. With Byte Brothers you are always guaranteed a top product at a price that you can afford.

The Low Voltage Pro is the first tester to realize that today's datacomm and low voltage technicians and engineers have a multitude of responsibilities. Plus, the LVPro is web upgradeable! Start with a Low Voltage Pro Model 1 for only $149 and grow it to a full blown Model 3 ... from the web.
