toner

I checked out the utube on that. I have never used that exact unit but it works on the same principle as a device called a TONER that is used in the communication trade to do a similar job.
The electrical power trade also has a similar tool that is used on energized circuits up to 600 volts.
The theory is to inject a tone onto the wire under test. Then a receiver is used to find that wire with that tone. The receiver probe only responds to the specific tone.
They take some practice to use after reading and understanding the instructions.
A basic knowledge of electrical systems is required.
Too expensive unless you do electrical troubleshooting for a living.
