Amazon’s new Echo Show is already a best-seller even though it’s currently only available for pre-order. It’s also already on sale, since you can save $100 on of two or more units by using the coupon code SHOW2PACK at checkout, which is nice since $230 is a lot to spend. What you might not know, however, is that there’s already a touchscreen device that’s Alexa-enabled. What’s more, it already offers the Echo Show’s main secondary feature, which is video calling. Check out the Nucleus Anywhere Intercom with Amazon Alexa, which is available right now on Amazon and costs $30 less than the Echo Show.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Nucleus is a family communication device that connects you with the people you love, whether they’re downstairs or across the country.
