Quick Overview of how the Kwilt product works:
Plug in your existing or new external hard drive into a Kwilt device and set it up with your router via wifi or ethernet using the Kwilt mobile app. Once it is setup you are able to offload photos and videos from any phone to the connected external hard drive wirelessly and remotely. **Remote access is currently only available via mykwilt.com and the mobile app. Access via your PC or Mac is limited to within your home or business network as a network mapped drive. Full remote access for all files is coming soon!**
Kwilt does not lock you out of your hard drive by using a non-standard filesystem. Simply unplug the external hard drive from your Kwilt and view everything on any computer at any time.
Alternative to Cloud storage. How does that work?
Kwilt can replace your need for paid subscription cloud storage/services by enabling you to utilize your external hard drive as your own cloud storage. We are taking the mystery of where your data is stored and giving you control of it, rather than having it be in a data farm in an undisclosed location, it is in your home.
Unlimited storage. How is this possible?
You could have up to 3 different hard drives (*If using more than one hard drive at the same time, they need to be self-powered or powered by a USB hub) plugged into the Kwilt at the same time and since we've tested up to 16TB hard drives that gives you the potential for 48+TB of data. That can be quite cost effective when you consider that 1TB of cloud service goes for $9.99 to $13/month ($120 to 156/year)! You can have unlimited storage as long as you keep replacing your drives as they flll up.
Services/app aggregation. What's that?
Ever wished you could have all your photos and videos from all your sources in one place? Then download the Kwilt app and start connecting all your sources! On top of allowing you to offload your photos and videos off your phone or tablet to your external hard drive, there's more functionality. You can connect your Instagram, Facebook, Google Drive, DropBox, and OneDrive to be able to view all the content in one area.
The Kwilt firmware is also built-in to certain Netgear routers allowing you to connect your drive to your router and get instant access to all the Kwilt features available via the app, mykwilt.com and connection to your PC or Mac!
Netgear Kwilt-enabled router models: R7000 , R7900P, R8000P, R7800, R9000, R6800.
What Power Adapter Can Be Used With Kwilt Devices?
Although there is a power adapter provided with your Kwilt device, you can also use any micro USB power adapter with the following output specifications: 5V, minimum 2AMP and maximum 2.5 AMP. If you are using the Kwilt Shoebox Plus, we recommend using the power supply included with your device as the Plus model requires more power than a normal micro USB power supply. Kwilt2 and Kwilt3 use a generic round power supply, which is provided with the Kwilt device.
