HomePipe Networks Unveils Free Secure Home Access Service for
Apple iPhones, iPod touch, and Any Web Browser
Consumers can finally access their photos, videos, music, and documents without the hassles of moving, uploading, or copying files to the cloud or mobile devices
SEATTLE - March 24, 2010 - HomePipe Networks (www.homepipe.net), the company that is changing the way people access and share their home files, announced today the public availability of its free Secure Home Access Service. This service is shifting consumer thinking - away from the hassles of copying, uploading and taking their home files or media with them, to the ease and simplicity of having access to those files from anywhere and from any device. With TappIn, anyone with access to a Web browser or mobile device - including a smartphone, iPhone (nasdaq: AAPL) or netbook - can now securely access everything on their home network without having to purchase expensive and complex hardware, software, or cloud-based products. No more uploading or copying now means that you have anytime access to all of your home photos, videos, music and files, from anywhere.
Users in the HomePipe Early Access Program have received the service with great enthusiasm. Julie Zancanelli, mother of three kids said, "It's such a pain to sort through dozens of digital photos from the weekend or sift through massive video files. TappIn removes the dirty work from managing and accessing my photos, music, and videos. For the first time, I can conveniently access my photos or have my kids watch their favorite videos that reside on my home computer from my iPhone."
HomePipe: The Secure, Convenient Way to Access Home Files
The HomePipe Service employs the same industrial strength security software that corporate firewalls use to give users secure access to their work networks. The TappIn software installs quickly on a Windows PC or Apple Mac without any expensive or clumsy hardware. With HomePipe, users don't need to move their home files or configure their home network or laptop. With a simple point and click, users have instant access to everything they need from any device.
And, unlike other cloud-based storage services, where users are limited to a certain amount of storage, HomePipe is completely free for all content. With HomePipe, people can access their content right from their home network, which means users don't have to worry about paying monthly fees to store content online or have to worry about exceeding storage limitations that never seem to be enough.
HomePipe customers will experience the following benefits:
- Get convenient iPhone and iPod touch apps for FREE.
- Never worry about forgetting an important file or document at home.
- Stream videos without having to dumb down the quality to meet a device's storage limit.
- Access MP3 files without installing complex software.
- Instantly view and share high quality photos without having to waste time uploading or attaching them to Internet photo sharing sites.
"HomePipe is shifting the way consumers think about and value their personal content - creating a new demand to have anytime access from anywhere, without the hassles of having to copy and upload home files or media. People want and should be able to play their favorite song, see photos, or watch a movie when it's convenient for them," said Chris Hopen, HomePipe Networks co-founder and CEO. "The rapidly growing Home Access Service market is as simple and as large as making Internet access two-way."
