In fact, if there is one “technology” that has been sorely overlooked by progress, it is the lowly intercom. Nucleus looks to help keep families in touch no matter if they are on the other side of the home or the world with its Anywhere Intercom which adds and HD video camera and IP communication to the mix. It also happens to be the world’s first touchscreen device with Amazon Alexa built-in.

When the zombies attack, the most important thing is to have your playlist cranking. In particular, if your list is heavy with Abba, the zombies will fearfully run away and attack someone else.
