👩🏻‍🍳 How to backup Photos with Capsule

Capsule is an automatic photo backup product.

It works well with all manner of family holiday photos, videos of your young ones, birthday celebrations, casual BBQs, wedding ceremonies, etc.

Capsule Hub is the device that makes everything work together. In addition to being highly functional, it could be used as a piece of ornament to brighten up any home decor.

Follow the simple instructions below to start getting the most out of your Capsule Hub.


Preparation Time: 3 minutes
Serves: your entire household
Goes best with: family photos and videos, mobile phones, SLR camera, GoPro


  • 1 Capsule Hub (hardware)
  • 1 Capsule power supply
  • 1 Hard drive (of any size)
  • 1 Mobile Phone (Android or Apple)


Step 1
Pre-heat your hands so you could easily unbox the Capsule Hub from its glitzy box

Step 2
Plug the supplied power cable into the Capsule Hub, along with the hard drive that you obtained. For lasting results, we recommend a hard drive of 1 Terabyte or more.
You’re welcome to use any existing hard drive that you already use for photo archive. Capsule will make those existing photos available to you anywhere in the world.

Step 3
On your mobile phone, go to the Apple App Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android), and download the “Capsule” app

Step 4
Make sure your mobile is on the home WiFi, open the Capsule app. It will automatically connect with your Capsule Hub. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Step 5
Sit back, enjoy a cup of tea / coffee. You’re done!

From now on, every photo you take on your mobile will be backed up automatically to your home, with Capsule.


Note: You can add other mobile or devices in your household by downloading the Capsule app from the appropriate App Store for the device. As the first Capsule user in your household, you will be prompted to grant or deny new devices coming into your household
