Preserve and Share Photos with Bevy is a sponsored post through Type-A Parent. All opinions are my own.
While we were on vacation, I wound up taking over 1,000 photos. We were at the beach for a whole week. I took the majority of them with my cell phone, so I was constantly having to plug it up to the computer downloading them, then deleting them, and honestly — it was a hassle. Then, last week I was introduced to Bevy.
So what is Bevy?
Bevy is a smart in-home connected device and app that collects, organizes and protects digital photos and videos taken by any family member on a mobile phone, tablet or digital camera.
You can easily (and privately) collect and share your digital photos and videos in ONE place. Through use of a mobile app, you can give permission to multiple family members (or people across on organization) to contribute and enjoy the photos anytime and anywhere.
And once uploaded, you can choose to delete files from your phone or tablet to free up space. For me and my husband this is great. We were just talking about upgrading his Ipad the other day to a bigger one because he has run out of space.
His work photos are something that he needs and uses all the time, but cannot get rid of. Now, with the Bevy, all we have to do is upload them and delete them and once again, the space is freed up for him to add more.
So How does the Bevy Get Set Up?
Setting up the Bevy is not complicated. All that is required is the Bevy and a smartphone with the app downloaded.
It literally took me minutes to get mine set up and working.
Bevy will need to be plugged in to the power supply but will connect through your wireless network. You can also use it to view photos on your television or desktop PC as well
The next thing to do is download the Bevy app to your smartphone. Make sure that your phone has the Bluetooth capacity ON and is using wi fi to connect to your home network. This is how you will set up the Bevy and get it registered to your email address.
Once you have the Bevy hooked to your wireless network, you can start uploading photos. You’ll be given the option to upload ALL the media on your phone or to pick and choose what gets uploaded.
Each Bevy contains either 1TB storage capacity, which equates to approximately 400,000 high-res photos, or a 2TB option that can hold approximately a million photos.
Bevy is currently available for purchase in Blue, Black and Purple in a 1TB or 2TB size for $299 and $349, respectively (sale pricing for the launch.)
At the moment, the Bevy is for sale in the United States and Canada with free shipping provided. It is recommended that users have a back up strategy whether it is a complete dump of the Bevy’s contents onto a portable hard drive OR subscribing to an online back up service.
Here is What I Love About the Bevy
For one thing, I love that all the pictures are organized by year and month. For me this is so amazing because I am always referring to photos I took in July and September, and you do not know what a pain it is to scroll through hundreds of photos to find the one I am looking for.
Now, with the Bevy, I can find them so much quicker.
I also love that every family member can upload their photos to Bevy and that no matter where we are, we can access them at any time.
The Bevy would make a great Christmas gift. I am so glad I was able to try it out. It’s much better than an external drive and it offers more storage of photos as well.
What about you? Have you heard of Bevy before?
