It looks like the Nucleus Anywhere Intercom is marked down to $149.00 at Lowes and Amazon. You can use a 10% or $15 off $50 coupon on one at Lowes or get two and use a $50 off $250 to essentially get two for the original price of one.
I don’t have any personal experience using these but it seems to generally have positive reviews and already has built in Alexa integration. It looks like an interesting product.
I ordered two from Lowe’s using the $50 off coupon. Seemed like a perfect solution for my kid to intercom to my wife’s dad who lives in our back house. Also interested to see what Necleus announces tomorrow during their webcast. Cheers!
From what I’ve read they’re announcing new features to the software. I haven’t heard anything about new hardware, but I guess it’s entirely possible. I’ll hold off on opening mine when they arrive today.
I currently have a Blink in my playroom so my wife can keep an eye on the 2 and 4 year old when they are down there. She hates the Blink because she has to constantly click “Continue” to watch it. I thought the Nucleus might be a good option because we sometimes need to chat with our 4 year old as he calls us or we call him. A few questions for you folks who have them:
Can we just peak in without having the kids answer it and watch the video?
If so, can we watch for as long as we want? Or does it time out?
I assume I can just get one Nucleus and use our iphones to access it?
The one thing that might not work is the kids might just grab it from the tv stand and unplug it. I wish it had a battery backup…
I bought a few of these a while back for a fun way to keep in touch with family in other states and for a home intercom. We use it more often the I would have thought. Not the greatest sound or video but decent enough. Nucleus has continually made upgrades and added features that are actually useful.
$100 VS $230 ( $180 if buying 2 ) , I’m sure there will be market. However trying to sell Nucleus at the same price as Show will be a short losing battle. How quickly a lot of the Alexa enable $50 speakers disappeared once Amazon dropped Echo to $39 .
There is an option in the Nucleus settings to be able to do a “drop in” or something along those lines. You can also set it to auto answer when getting calls from devices in the “family” group. Its how I keep an eye on my dog from work and have the ability to yell at her to stop chewing the couch when need be.
