The invention of baby monitors is considered a godsend by most parents and caregivers because it allows them to remotely monitor their young ones. The initial models used wired connectivity which meant that if you installed the device there was likely to be a web of cords running through your house. With time the wireless versions of the baby monitor were introduced and this is the now more or less a standard feature of these infant surveillance devices.
Wireless baby monitors use special frequencies similar to those used by radios or mobile phones to transmit sound and sometimes images) over distances. The main advantage is that they can easily be moved around the home. If for instance you have a wired monitor with a 5 meter cord, your movement will definitely be restricted by the length of the cord. Wireless baby monitors are portable and many models come with enhanced features such as video (with zoom and pan function) and vibrating alert in addition to the standard sound transmission.

The size of an average wireless supervisory device has also decreased over time and now many of the models on the market are the size of a mobile phone and are equipped with various modern features.
- Additional Modern Features
Many wireless devices are equipped with a talk back function that enables parents, guardians or even babysitters to say some soothing words to an infant from a different location. This is a far cry from the one way devices that only enabled caregivers to listen in. The two-way function is definitely more interactive and most buyers today choose devices that have this feature.
Another modern feature that is being adopted by wireless baby monitors is internet connectivity. This means that you can connect the baby monitor (with video capability) to an internet modem enabling the video images to be viewed remotely over the internet. This is a great feature allows parents to view their kids even if they are halfway across the globe.
