There’s a new home video intercom on the market, and it has some impressive features, including that it is wireless and that it integrates with Amazon’s Alexa.
Introducing the Nucleus
The Nucleus is the brainchild of a dad who couldn’t find what he needed on the market. He wanted something affordable, quick, and wireless. When he found that a smart home device like that didn’t exist, he decided to create one. So now the Nucleus is available for homes everywhere, and it works on Wi-Fi, doesn’t need installation, and won’t break the bank.
The final product is a video intercom that works on Wi-Fi and allows two-way communications. The device is making history as the first (and only on the market right now) that is a touch screen and Alexa-enabled.
This video intercom system is available with free two-day shipping at $249 for a single unit, or $597 for a three-pack. You can buy them in any multiple – and each offers different savings – but they feature the single unit and three-pack on their website. The unit is currently available in black.
Features of the Nucleus
Here are the main features that make the Nucleus a great smart home device:
The Camera: The camera is HD and 120-degree, so you can see the whole room on the screen, and no one has to try to hold a device up in the air. This is great for watching your kids in the playroom, or even for having a call with long-distance family.
The Integration: Like I mentioned earlier, the Nucleus is able to integrate with smart home technology’s “it” product, Alexa. Alexa is the brain behind the Amazon Echo and Fire TVs, and now the cloud-based voice-activated service works with your Nucleus.
The Ease: Nucleus is all about being easy to use. Connections are instant, and the buttons are big with clear, intuitive instructions.
The Possibilities: The Nucleus can work in many instances: you can connect your home device with someone else’s home device, you can connect your home device to your mobile device, and you can connect all of your home devices to each other.
The Installation: The Nucleus comes with both a wall mount and a desk stand, so you can choose how to use it. You can plug it in, connect to Wi-Fi, and start using. You don’t have to have an installation crew, and you don’t need to have any wiring done. If you want to move your device from room to room, you can do that too.
The Smarts: As a cloud device, software updates and bug fixes that make it an even smarter home device are easy to push out, and mean that your device will still up-to-date. This means you won’t have to replace it as often.
The Privacy: You can cover the device’s shutter and use the “do not disturb” mode as needed.
The Speakers: The Nucleus uses stereo speakers – because what good would an intercom system be with bad audio?
