How does Monument work?

Monument is a new and premier photo management platform that automatically backs up and organizes photos and videos straight to your own external hard drives. Unlike cloud services which charge monthly fees and keep your personal content on company servers, Monument has no monthly cost and allows you to keep everything in your own home.

Once your content is backed up, Monument automatically organizes all of your content by date, location, camera type, facial recognition, and scene recognition.
