The Nucleus is a family intercom system that brings together a family phone, intercom, video chat device and security alert system. In other words, this device can be used to communicate with a partner upstairs, chat on the phone with a relative who lives far away or get in touch with a family member who's loitering in the backyard to let them know to come inside for dinner.
This intercom system is custom designed, making it faster than other similar solutions -- thanks largely to the use of proprietary hardware and software.
As an added bonus, the Nucleus also works with various smart home products such as the Nest, SmartThings and iControl, and can be used as a connected home-managing interface.
The main advantage with this intercom system is that it does so much more than simply work as an intercom, but does so from a single easy-to-use package.
