I recently moved my darkroom from the house to the 'studio', which is a detached building in the front of my house. Everything is working out fine, but when I'm in the darkroom, I'm detached from all mankind. This is good except that I have a couple of young kids and sometimes it would be nice to hear what is going on. Now, if I'm in the darkroom and they are out playing, a bomb could go off in the front yard and I wouldn't know. Or they could be burning the house down, or someone could come visit (rare since I live in the sticks) and I would never know. You get the idea. I have a phone connection, but no intercom.
Do any of you have similar setups? How did you solve the problem? Thoughts?
