Alert! Alert! Parents approaching. Hide your pathetic attempt at an investigation.
— Thunder Monitor
Thunder Monitor is a smart home monitor used by The Thundermans mainly to alert them of approaching visitors so that they can prepare accordingly. But, it can also be used for other superhero purposes such as alerts, communication (especially with the superhero league) and video chats. It has also been shown to perform medical tasks such as diagnosis and treatment.
When not in use, the Thunder Monitor is disguised as part of the main table, with flowers and other objects placed above it. It can be activated by voice commands or by moving some of the objects in a particular way.
