You will be able to import your pictures over your hard drive, but we have not enabled that yet. You can follow our most up to date feature roadmap here. Please note that we also intend to release PC and Mac clients to help importing further down the road. Currently, you can import from your mobile device or SD card.
The easiest way to import is to put your photos on an SD card that is formatted either with FAT32, NTFS, or HFS+ (avoid exFAT format and SDXC cards). Insert the SD card into your Monument using the slot in the front, and let it import all of the pictures. The LED in the front will blink green during import. Once it stops blinking green, you can remove the SD card. Depending on the size and the contents of the SD card, this may take a while.
Why do you need the IP address?
Remote access will be available by the end of January.
