What are Monument's features?


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.

Whether you're on iOS, Android, Mac or PC, transfer photos and videos from all of your devices to Monument over Wi-Fi, Cellular Data, or using Monument's SD card reader. Once your content is backed up, Monument automatically organizes all of your content by date, location, camera type, facial recognition, and scene recognition.

Lastly, up to 5 people can connect to Monument and all of the original content is accessible through the Monument app from anywhere in the world.


  • Automatic or Manual Backup: save your content from smartphones, laptops, external hard drives, SD cards, and cloud services
  • Automatic Organization: your content is sorted by date, time, location, camera type, and tags
