Coming Soon — DIY Home Intercom
Normally I like to get my hands on a product before talking about it here but, sometimes something comes along that catches my eye while it is still in the pipeline. Nucleus Intercom is one of those things that shows a lot of promise.
Nucleus was invented by entrepreneur Jonathan Frankel out of his frustration with traditional intercom systems. In early 2013, Frankel was renovating his home and wanted an intercom system to keep tabs on his three active little boys; But when all the quotes came in above $3,000 for the same system his parents installed twenty years ago, Jonathan went looking for a wireless option.
The result is Nucleus. Instead of bad audio and expensive wiring, Nucleus uses Wi-Fi, an HD camera, and a touch screen to provide a higher-quality intercom at a fraction of the price. And because Nucleus is Internet-connected, it allows home-owners to extend the intercom system anywhere in the world. The Nucleus Intercom System is ideal for parents checking on kids in other rooms in the home; for parents at work checking on kids in the home; family members checking on elderly parents living alone; as is also great for use as a baby monitor?.all with just one tap on the screen.
The company is in the final round of raising capital to go into production. If it looks and sounds like the product we see in the video Nucleus could be a hot item at a projected price of less than $200. I will be keeping an eye on Nucleus and when they go into production I will produce an in depth review. In the meantime you can enter to win a free Nucleus at the company website.
