The main features
Some digital monitors offer touch screen technology. This helps make them as easy to navigate as your mobile phone. Some video monitors allow you to remotely control the camera via the touch screen. Some even allow you to remotely control built-in lullabies, light shows and see the temperature of your baby’s room.
Most monitors have a signal range up to 300 metres. The key word here is ‘up to’, as the size, layout of your flat or house will decide how strong, and far the signal is transmitted. Where the
The main difference between newer models and some of the older models is that these newer versions use digital rather than analogue technology. This doesn’t mean analogue versions are less superior. But there are advantages digital technology can provide, that analogue technology cannot.
Digital technology provides greater security and clearer audio signals. Signals from analogue
These digital monitors also send signals using Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS). This security feature repeatedly switches the frequency of the audio signal to prevent interception and jamming of the signal.
Things to note
There are a few downsides of a digital
Keeping the unit away from such devices can limit the amount of interference they receive. Also, you get what you pay for. The cheaper end of the market monitors wont be as good as the more expensive ones in preventing interference problems.
One other issue to be aware of, is manufacturers say the range of a monitor can be up to 300 metres. In reality, unless you live in a house with very thin walls, or no walls at all, you realistically will get around 50 to 75 metres when inside a house. If you use the monitor in the garden and you have clear line of sight, you most likely will get the full signal range.
