Pros: Lower price, nice range
Cons: Distorted sound, short battery life

Manufacturer: Summer Infant
The Summer Infant Baby Wave Deluxe is an inexpensive sound monitor that offers some standard features and great indoor range working through 8 walls and up to 100 ft. This product is straightforward without a lof of fluff, but it isn't the best thing going, not even for the price. With the worst sound clarity in the group that is distorted unless you have it on the lowest volume setting, we suspect it isn't going to meet your needs for clearly hearing baby, especially during a deep or deprived sleep. Even if you need the maximum range possible, there is still a better option for you than the Baby Wave, making it a monitor we don't recommend.

Our Analysis and Test Results
William Lockett III started the Summer Infant company in 1985, naming it after his baby Summer. The new father wanted somewhere to set his baby down while he did other things, so he created the original bouncy seat. Since the original bouncy seat, Summer Infant has made a wide range of baby gear including monitors, strollers, cribs, and bathtubs.
