Do you like the idea of Dropbox, Google Drive, or other file storage and sharing services but are not willing to store your files on someone else’s servers? DAEMON Sync may be the answer for you.
DAEMON Sync works more or less in the same manner as Dropbox and the others except for one major difference: it only transfers files over your local wi-fi network. It never sends files to the Internet and therefore cannot save files on someone else’s servers. Since all data is kept within your own local network, YOU control where your data is stored or, more to the point, you control where your data is NOT stored. No hacker can access your files on a server on the Internet simply because your files will never be stored on such a server. Of course, hackers might still be able to reach your computer in your home if your wi-fi network is not secured.
The DAEMON server runs on each computer and allows your devices to speak directly to each other. The platform supports Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, and Linux, so virtually all of your devices can share files. Sending and backing up files with DAEMON Sync is also much faster than using any of the Internet-based services simply because all data is sent at high speed over your Wi-Fi connection. Data is never sent to your (slower) Internet connection.
The one downside is that all the devices that share data must be connected to the same wi-fi network. You won’t be able to get that new file on your cell phone when you are outside the range of your wi-fi network. Likewise, any new files added to your laptop computer won’t be added to your stored files until you return home and connect to the wi-fi network there.
