A baby monitor that uses your phone as a display utilizes wifi technology, either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz technology to relay signals from the baby monitor camera to your phone. The benefit of this is that you can check in on your baby without being in the same room and also receive notifications if there is any activity in the camera’s field of view.

Infant Optics DXR 8 is a non-wifi baby monitor that uses FHSS technology that sends images and video to the display screen. The DXR 8 does not have an app, so it cannot connect to your phone. While Frequency Hoping Spread Spectrum is a secure non-wifi connected technology, it also uses 2.4 GHz frequency in a local network. It transmits signals to a maximum of 1000 ft and unlike wifi baby monitors that have unlimited range, Infant Optics’ range is limited and does not relay any signals if you are further than 1000 ft.
