D-Link and Kwilt partner to offer consumers access to home photos anywhere, anytime

D-Link Corporation announced its partnership with Kwilt, the makers of the Kwilt Personal Memories Platform. Users of D-Link routers will have unlimited access to their original photos, stored at home through their D-Link router and gathered from multiple locations such as social media, cloud storage, mobile, and tablet into one photo stream.

D-Link’s DIR-885L and DIR-895L are now Kwilt-enabled, and the DIR-882 will offer Kwilt compatibility in Q1 2018. Owners of these existing routers can upgrade their device’s firmware through the router’s web-based interface to enable Kwilt compatibility. Updated models with Kwilt features are shipping out within the next few months.

In addition to accessing cloud storage, social media and smartphone photos, Kwilt offers seamless real time access to home-based collections stored on USB drives connected to the D-Link router. This allows consumers to store and access their precious images in a safe and private home environment while enjoying the benefits of private cloud access at no extra cost, actually saving them tens of dollars annually compared to typical cloud storage.

The Kwilt platform supports iOS and Android apps, Microsoft Office and Outlook, along with integration with the Kik messenger app, Facebook Messenger, and Apple Messages, making it easy to enjoy and share memories on virtually any platform.

“The Kwilt platform offers consumers a unique, seamless and secure way to access and enjoy all their digital memories wherever they are stored, solving the user-generated content fragmentation problem we all face,” said Marc-Antoine Benglia, founder and CEO of Kwilt.

“We are thrilled to welcome D-Link to the Kwilt ecosystem. Their market position as a proven innovator in the connected-home sphere matches Kwilt’s focus on bringing pioneering solutions to consumers.”
