Don’t miss the giveaway at the bottom of this post, brought to you by LyveHome.
Making memories with my family and capturing our special moments together is what I live for.
And, apparently I am pretty good at it. I tallied up all the photos on my phone, camera and iPad this weekend …. and folks, you do not want to know how many “memories” I had recorded.
There were more than 3,000 photos on my camera alone since school let out in June! It’s a tad bit ridiculous. Now ask me when the last time I printed actual photos … or even uploaded these pics to my computer, and I will hang my head down in shame.
I know, because that’s exactly what I did on Sunday when my mother in law asked me kindly if I could please start sharing photos again. She loves to scrapbook, and the last time I uploaded an album to Shutterfly was oh, I don’t know about 3 years ago!! Now you know my secret. I stink at photo sharing and snail mail. Pray I never have to mail you a package …
There’s just no easy way to upload and organize things anymore. I don’t have time to sit and wait for my camera pics to upload, or storage space to move the bajillion huge image files from my DSLR I am still learning how to use. The technology has gotten “too good” for me.
Enter LyveHome, a brand new type of storage system that seamlessly integrates with all of your mobile devices.
Here’s what I can tell you after trying ours’ for just a few days.
1. It’s beautiful
You won’t hear many people call a storage device beautiful, but LyveHome is. The storage unit itself is sleek and modern with a digital display that will scroll through all your family photos and even tell you what time it is.
2. It’s super smart.
The system will chunk all your photos into neat little albums based on the date you took them without you having to do a thing! It will even merge photographs from your phone, camera and iPad so you get a full picture of what a day in your life was really like. (Hmm, this gives me an idea for a future post to share with you guys!!)
3. It’s fast.
Importing information from one system to another is faster than you would expect. LyveHome will pull in thumbnails and metadata of all your photos before you can even tell it not to. (Yep, had that happen twice.) And then go back in and pull all the large files while you are busy flipping through and checking them out.
3. It’s a great way to remember
I can’t remember the last time I have been able to flip through our family photos. There’s just nowhere to “flip” since I have done a horrible job of printing and managing them this far. LyveHome not only makes it easy, but fun to look back and remember what you were doing last week and even a year or more ago!
When I logged into the Lyve app this morning, it showed me this display of what we were doing this very week last year. I can remember it clear as day, now I can see and share that day with my children and family as well.
4. The system travels with you
All your photos at your fingertips, anywhere you go. Thanks to the Lyve app, you can view and access your photos from anywhere and download or share them with friends and family. Yay for my mother in law!
This is fabulous for a family like us. My husband travels quite a bit, now he can easily check in while he’s gone and see what we’ve been up to or look back and remember all the good times we’ve shared.
Like the time he took our son on his first coastal fishing trip and they caught this sting ray! He has very few photos on his phone, but now we can integrate and hold on to them forever.
5. The storage is MASSIVE!
It’s a 2TB storage system, which breaks down to about 1 MILLION photos which means even a photo hog like me can use and love this system for quite some time.
I know what you are thinking, but what about all those extra photos I take that I don’t want/need? Don’t worry, LyveHome makes it a breeze to delete photos individually or in bulk, but with a conformation request so no one deletes any of your family photos by accident either.
Oh yeah and last but not least, you can sync this baby with your television and watch your photos scroll by anytime! I haven’t had a chance to try this yet, but I can’t wait. I’m not a huge television watcher, but I would love to have family photos scrolling by at night while I am up working on the computer.
