A tablet-like device that reimagines how we interact with our smart homes.

Being in control of your smart home from a single app on your phone is great, but sometimes one tiny phone screen just isn’t enough to manage your entire empire of connected gadgets. Just like your one pair of eyes isn’t enough to watch every room.

Thankfully, Nucleus is a device that understands. Made by families, for families, Nucleus is a smart home intercom that wants to be a dashboard for all of your smart home management, incorporating home automation, instant video chat, music, security, and more into a single slimline screen.

With one or multiple Nucleus smart intercom devices dotted about your home on various bookshelves or wall mounts, you can use instant voice activation to access a ton of convenient, time-saving smart features.

Perhaps you’d like to chat to grandma on her Nucleus intercom, or check on the kids in the playroom? All it takes is a quick voice command, and Nucleus will fire up a video connection in the blink of an eye. Literally. Nucleus can get you connected in less than 200 milliseconds, which is actually the time it takes you to blink.

Nucleus also turns your phone into a remote intercom, letting you access features like video chat remotely. That way, you can check on the kids remotely whether you’re just elsewhere in the house, or sipping a Singapore Sling on a tropical beach on the other side of the world. Or, y’know, at the supermarket.

As well as putting you in touch with your family 24/7, Nucleus also dabbles in a spot of home automation, letting you dim the kitchen lights, control your Nest thermostat, or your Samsung SmartThings and Insteon devices.

It also manages to tackle home security, packing a 5MP, 120-degree wide-angle HD camera that alerts your phone when unexpected motion is detected. That makes it perfect for baby’s room to give you peace of mind that everything is peaceful and sound.

Nucleus will be on sale late summer 2016, and you can manage up to 100 of them in a single house…We think that’ll cover it. You can jump in line to be the first to know when it’s out on Nucleus’s website.
