iPad as a home intercom

I have looked and looked and all i have found are cheap "walkie talkie" apps with huge delay and or are only Bluetooth connect.

I have 3 first generation iPADs bought on craigs list, 2 are rather banged up but I have them mounted on the wall so you cant see the damage, and I am using them for Sonos, Nest and Home security but would really like to use them as a HOME INTERCOM SYSTEM as well.

They are mounted in LANDSCAPE and I thought of using SKYPE but you cant make the iPad SKYPE auto answer.

Any ideas???

Any updated apps that allow for home intercom on the ipads yet?
I also have several wall mounted ipads for Sonos, security, cameras but I need to add intercom from ipad to ipad.

Video would be nice but good quality audio would be great.

Except that a 1st-generation iPad runs iOS 5 and doesn't have a front facing camera.
