Interference can occur if other nearby equipment, such as a wireless router, is using the same channel. There are enough channels for equipment to co-exist happily but the analogue system has to be switched manually. The analogue system has 4 channels that are set via a switch on both the transmitter and receiver base. Alternatively the channel on the other equipment causing the interference can be changed, e.g. wireless routers have 13 channels that can be changed easily. Interference occurs if the camera and wireless router are set to use the same channel.

The digital transmitter and receiver have 80 channels and are locked on to each other. They will automatically and seamlessly change channels if other equipment is detected on the same channel.

Only difference between the analogue wireless 800TVL at £159 to the digital wireless at £229 is the wireless transmitter and receiver, everything else is identical.
