How does it work? 

Once you place a baby monitor or video baby monitor into your baby’s room it will send signals from the camera to your room whether digital signals or from your wi-fi network. Just make sure two devices should be connected to the same network. 

Wi-fi video baby monitors work the same as your other devices connected with your wi-fi network. 

The wi-fi based baby monitors and the digital baby monitors have the only difference is the digital-based cameras send signals with FHSS ( Frequency-hopping spread spectrum) so the signal is secure and direct from the transmitter into the camera to the parents’ room.  The wi-fi video baby monitors work in a similar way as the other gadgets connected to wi-fi.
