Any comments on this? How does it really work? I imagine:

- Monument is connected to a local USB Hard Drive
- Monument is connected to your router
- When your camera/phone/photo taking device is connected to your home WiFi, the photos are backed up to the local USB Hard Drive
- When you want to access those photos, you'll open the Monument app to see the photos over the internet/cloud

From my understanding, you are paying $100 for this basic hardware and software, and add your own harddrive, then everything uploads / backups from the software. Also, bring your own ethernet cable.

Laptops yes, Phones yes, directly from camera, no.

This is correct. If you have it hooked up to a storage device that is say, 1tb, that is the backup device's capacity - i.e, no storage supplied. Reminds me of the hard drive kits they sold eons ago. They have had much easier solutions - one touch back up where it is a cloud based solution (and may have some onboard for redundancy, etc) for example, or one button back up drives - via Seagate, OCZ, etc. at the exact same price so Im not sure of the value here. Product description is fairly straightforward; consider this more a transfer device? Also note that certain high end digital cameras should actually be able to connect to it; same for newish/newer phones. The PD doesn't get into it but, not sure.
