Kwilt Shoebox Plus ~ Personal Cloud to Protect Photos
As a mom and blogger I take tons of photos. The problem with this is that I have to constantly transfer photos out of my phone so I don’t run out of space. With all the transferring I do there are the times I’ve wanted to show a picture and it’s on my home computer. I use online storage for my blog photos. Mainly because it’s convenient and easy. However, I don’t keep my personal photos on an online storage. Once you upload your photos to an online storage people can see and use my photos for whatever they want. This is scary since most smartphones attach your location to photos making it easy for people to know exactly where your photos were taken. So when I heard about Kwilt Shoebox Plus I couldn’t wait to find out more about this personal cloud.
The Kwilt Shoebox Plus is a device that creates a private, personal cloud where consumers can offload photos and videos from their smartphones and still access their content anytime, anywhere.
The device offers:
- Privacy: As consumers, we often trade our digital privacy for digital services. Online cloud storage services can often freely view, use, analyze, control, own and sometimes even sell these memories without informing you. Public clouds are also more likely to be hacked. By storing your photos on your own personal cloud, you ensure your photos have total privacy.
- Total control: All of your content is saved in its original format and resolution. As your online collection grows over time to thousands and hundreds of thousands of photos and videos, many platforms no longer allow you to download them all back in order to change hosting providers – a huge concern for many families. Because Kwilt does not require any sort of proprietary drive or format, and your photos are stored on your own personal hardware device, you have total control over content and can easily move it from one device to another.
- Save money: Consumers no longer have to pay for monthly cloud storage fees or spend a lot of money buying an upgraded phone with 256 gigabytes of memory. By owning their storage once and for all, they can stop the cash drain. Buy it once and use it for life.
The Kwilt Shoebox Plus came with everything I needed to get started right away. The package included: the Kwilt Shoebox Plus, Power Supply, 3′ Ethernet cable, a 64 GB USB memory stick, and a USB 3.0 MicroSDXC Reader.
The Kwilt Shoebox Plus itself has connections for a power cable, an Ethernet port, 4 USB ports, and an HDMI output plug for displaying content on a TV to monitor.
To get started I linked the Kwilt to my home router, downloaded the app and backed up the photos from my smartphone. Easily all of the my photos showed up in the Kwilt app, I’m still working on transferring my videos. Now that my photos are safely stored on the USB drive, I can delete some from my phone, freeing space to shoot more. I really like how easily I can access the photos anytime anywhere from my phone using the Kwilt app. This makes a great gift for you or anyone you love, plus it’s perfect to gift on any occasion!
