Annke Tivona Review FHSS Non-Wifi Baby Monitor With Screen

Monday, March 27, 2023

The Annke Tivona is a nifty baby monitoring camera solution that comes with its own display screen and connects via FHSS wireless, which means you can hook up the Tivona FHSS baby monitor to a portable power bank and use it anywhere - even in a car - making the Tivona baby monitor more versatile than a regular Wifi security camera.

Unlike Wifi baby monitor, which must be connected to a Wifi router, the Tivona FHSS baby monitor creates its own wireless hotspot, which also has the added benefit of making the video signal harder to intercept by a hacker.

The kickstand opens up 45 degrees.
