In the future of the internet, every internet connected device – appliances, security systems, home computers, phones, etc. – needs a trusted hub for data storage and negotiation protocol to empower people with data sovereignty and complete device control.
Especially with recent data breaches (like Equifax), consumers are now very aware and concerned with privacy, safety, and security of personal data. However, with no other option, consumers continue to submit themselves to unreasonable terms of service and loss of ownership, privacy, and control. Digital freedom literally hangs in the balance.
The option for people to purchase a plug and play home system that gives them the ability to take back data and control from cloud service providers is very attractive. They will maintain privacy, safety, and security for their digital life without losing any convenience.
At Daplie, we recognize the home server is the next ubiquitous home appliance.
The Problem is the Cloud
The cloud is just someone else's computer. When you use centralized cloud services like iCloud, Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box.com, Facebook, or a hundred others, you gain the convenience of storing your data on someone else's computer, but you make some huge tradeoffs in return. You lose ownership, security, privacy, and control of your digital assets and you even grant advertisers access to your personal information.
"When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services,
you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store,reproduce, modify,
create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform,
publicly display and distribute such content."
- Google Terms of Service
Ownership is the Solution
With Daplie, there's no need to sign away your rights to ownership, sacrifice security, or relinquish control. You own the hardware, you own the software, and you own your content — no terms of service. You know where your digital assets are physically, not metaphorically. You know — and that is important to us. And ever more importantly, the power to control your digital life resides where you do, in your home.
Convenience is the Key

Our Homes are Under Attack
Before Daplie, companies like Google (Nest), Vivint, ADT, etc., have had a direct connection and access to your home via cameras, home security systems, smart door locks, etc. A good home invasion test would be: “If you don’t pay the water bill, can they turn it off?" Or does the box say, “Cloud storage?” Daplie is fundamentally restructuring the data model and putting a device in the home that gives you, as the home owner, the keys to the data your home creates, like video feeds when you're home or away.
Home is Where We Should Always Feel Safe
Daplie Home creates the necessary infrastructure (authentication, server architecture, human-readable domains, protocol negotiation, hardware, etc.) that allows the homeowner to easily take complete control of the data and devices within a home and make those devices accessible from anywhere, securely. Daplie has a complete line of home security and home automation devices ready for the masses and is developing other game-changing devices as well.
The "Daplie" Market: Over $160 Billion by 2020
Because of the modularity of Daplie’s system, Daplie is able to enter into new markets and effectively compete by utilizing the same underlying software stack and modular hardware design. This nearly doubles the market size from an $80 billion personal cloud market into a $160 Billion combined home automation and personal cloud market - an entirely new market unto itself.

Let's Take Back the Internet
Freedom. It’s what drives us. The freedom to do more, be more, experience more. Technology should bring us freedom and enhance our lives. Unfortunately, technology today sacrifices our freedoms of privacy and control of our digital lives for convenience. It’s hard to share something with someone without the world or at least a major company knowing about it. And that’s why we’ve decided to Take Back the Internet.
Building a cloud infrastructure utilizing personal servers by Daplie is our way of doing just that. Through building this company and our products we have developed a way for our technology and the Internet to not only enhance our lives but better protect them in the process. With a solid team and commited investors we are excited to lead the next technological revolution and help everybody take back control of their digital lives. Join us and be a part of the movement!
