About

What is FamilyStation?

FamilyStation is a device which aims at helping free up mobile devices' storage space without deleting anything and debuts a photo and video private cloud solution that the whole family can share.

What problem are we solving?

Families today often have lots of photo-taking mobile devices , which has led to the problem of people having massive numbers of photos and videos, which takes most of devices' storage. 

For example, a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone's main camera (Rear) has 16MP resolution, and the average size for each photo is 3MB. Think about you take 3 photos per day and one video clip (60 seconds for about 100MB) every other week (believe me, that's really the minimum use of photo and video). Your photos and videos will take up to  6 GB of your storage space in your phone. Suppose you are using a 16 GB Samsung Galaxy S5, your Android System needs 5 GB in space, and you must have installed tens of apps for at least 5 to 6 GB space. Obviously, your phone is running out of space after using it for one year.

Then what will you do with photos and videos in your phone now? 

1) You may plug your phone to your laptop, copy photos/videos in your phones over to the laptop, and leave them there. 

Yes you can do that, but you won't be able to view your photos/videos from your phone any more. Probably all of them, the memory of a whole year in your life, will just sleep in your laptop's hard drive forever.

Are you sure you want to do that?

2) Alternatively, you can purchase a new android phone, sync your old phone's photos and videos over to your new phone. 

But you have to buy a new phone!

You can even pick a 32 GB or 64 GB phone in the first place instead of buying a 16 GB one. But you have to pay $100 extra dollars for a 32 GB one and $200 extra dollars for a 64 GB one.

And for your whole family members, you guys will have to spend much more!

FamilyStation is your most convenient and effective solution for this problem.

What's the advantage we have

1)Wireless Solution in backing up photos 

2)Magic 0 deleting to increate phone's space.

3)Easy index photos

How Does FamilyStation Solve it?

 

Step1: Power on FamilyStation, launch "FamilyStation" app on your phone. 

App will help your phone to connect to FamilyStation. Click "Backup" button to start backing up photos to FamilyStation box.

Step 2: App will help you to back up all of photos to FamilyStation. 

FamilyStation box servers as a private cloud storing all original high resolution photos from your phone.

With 50Mbps throughput (we get it by test in real environment), you can backup 1 GB of photos within 3 minutes. So back up whole photos and videos in your phone won't be more than 20 minutes. You can leave your phone backing up.  

Step 3: After backing up finished, you can click "Clear" to replace original photos with small size photos on your phone. 

The small size photo will only have 10% of the original size. In this way, you slim your phone.

If you want to retrieve any of original photos back, simply select the photo(s) and click "retrieve". Then the original photo is back.

Just put one in your home, every family members can use it to slim their mobile device, which helps to save an amount of dollars in replacing mobile device because of running out of space. 

They can always retrieve the original high resolution photos back to their phones once they launch the app in FamilyStation's working range.

FamilyStation is also an alternative to cloud storage solutions like iCloud, Google Drive or Dropbox, for example, as it’s designed to store content locally on a connected hard drive placed in the home, which is where the photos and videos from all family members are saved. It is really a private cloud solution which provides more security and privacy.

Risks and challenges

As no product is perfect and bug-less, you may find our current FamilyStation has this and that tiny issues. What’s more, new minor bugs could be brought in when we add new features in. Our award-winning team, with more than 20 years’ hardware and software development experience, is scoping the project carefully. We are confident that the fund can be a stimuli for us to constantly improve the product.
