It is getting easier and easier to watch over your baby without sacrificing comfort and security.

The wireless video baby monitor was a significant advance over the wired version since it gave far greater physical mobility to parents and care givers.

But there are still a couple of troublesome problems that you can have if you are not informed and prepared:

  1. Frequency Selection

    2.4 GHz is the most commonly used frequency for video baby monitors today. Most cell phones use the 2.4 GHz band so it has become over crowded.

    2.4 GHz phones do interfere with 2.4 GHz baby monitors. When the phone rings or is in use, the video image may suffer from added static.

    Another source of interference is a home router (Wi-Fi computer network).

    All this means is that you need to determine the frequencies used by devices in your home before buying a wireless baby monitor.

    Don't forget devices like microwave ovens, wireless headphones, and wireless speaker systems.

  2. 900 MHz bandwidth

    A few years ago, the 900 MHz bandwidth was the most used frequency for multiple wireless devices.

    This use declined with the emergence of the 2.4 GHz frequency.

    If you have serious problems in your home with interference due to 2.4 GHz frequency devices, then look for a video baby monitor that uses the 900 MHz bandwidth.

  3. Channels

    Don't mistake channels with frequencies. Devices may have multiple channels, but these channels operate on the same frequency.

    If you have a video baby monitor with multiple cameras, you would use different channels for each camera.
