Kwilt Introduces Second-Generation Personal Cloud Smart Hubs

New Devices Make It Easier Than Ever to Access Your Home Hard Drives from Anywhere.

SAN FRANCISCO – November 15, 2018Kwilt, the award-winning personal media solutions innovator, announced today the launch of Kwilt2 and Kwilt3, two platform-agnostic devices that turn any USB memory key or external drive into a private cloud at home; where users can offload photos and videos from their smartphones, cameras and other devices and access their content anytime, anywhere.

Kwilt2 and Kwilt3 improve upon the original Shoebox Mini and Shoebox Plus. The new devices include all of the great features of the earlier models; a sleek new design, enhanced power & speed due to faster Quad-Core CPU and Penta-core GPU processors, multiple USB ports, faster Ethernet and WiFi connectivity and built-in USB and SD card reader ports.

Kwilt2, the entry level device, boasts more power and speed than both previous models and is the perfect personal content storage and aggregation accessory for mobile photographers.

Kwilt3, the premium, performance-oriented device offers faster processors, enhanced networking speeds and USB 3.0 capabilities to satisfy DSLR, drone and action camera photographers.

With the Kwilt2 and Kwilt3, users can:

  • Enjoy all the benefits of cloud storage with the privacy and flexibility of home storage.
  • Take advantage of the built-in SD card reader, which allows users to copy the content of their DSLR, action camera or drone SD card directly to any drive attached to Kwilt2 and Kwilt3.
  • Enjoy unlimited mobile storage by connecting up to 3 USB storage devices or a standard USB port replicator directly to Kwilt2 and Kwilt3 for even more expansion.
  • Maintain original, full-resolution photos and videos.
  • Access photos, videos and all other digital files from anywhere, on any computer or mobile platform.
  • Easily share photos via text message, email, social media or link.
  • No longer pay monthly storage subscription fees or suffer from storage limits.
  • Access photos, videos and all other digital files from anywhere, on any computer or mobile platform.
  • Maintain complete privacy with a secure, personal cloud accessible only by the user.
  • Revisit old memories effortlessly thanks to Kwilt’s aggregation of several sources of cloud and home content (Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos, Dropbox, etc.) into a single stream. This allows users to search, access and rediscover all of their photos and videos – including those stored across various cloud platforms – in one place.

“Camera technology is constantly improving, and as a result, photos and videos are higher quality and taking up more space. We founded Kwilt with a mission; to provide safe, reliable access to memories without having to overpay for online cloud storage or compromise on privacy and original photo resolution,” said Marc-Antoine Benglia, CEO of Kwilt. “Designed based on our users’ feedback, the new Kwilt devices further this mission, providing more convenient and powerful options for consumers looking to preserve, access and share their memories with maximum freedom.”
