How to control a digital picture frame on the wall?
With most cheap and mid-range digital picture frames for the wall, the only way to control them is direct via the frame’s onboard controls. In some rarer cases, a handheld remote control is provided, though they generally have a very limited range and aren’t very responsive (though they’re usually great with premium frames.
A handful of the best digital picture frames like the Pix-Star offer versatile and user-friendly ways to control the frame. While there are still on-frame controls and a handheld remote, these aren’t needed very often. This is thanks to advanced Wi-Fi & cloud functionality that lets you remotely control any of your Pix-Star frames via the web interface – from anywhere in the world.
This remote-control feature is not universally offered – despite being extremely versatile and well-suited for family use. Pix-Star’s remote-control feature lets you manage up to 25 Pix-Star frames from a single user account. Here you can adjust any of your frame’s settings, start slideshows and adjust their settings, manage local & cloud storage, update the frames’ firmware, and import photo albums from external sources like social media, photo-sharing, and online storage platforms.
Is wall-mounting a digital picture frame a good idea?
Wall-mounting a digital picture frame is an excellent idea. It lets you fill up empty walls and breathe new life into bland rooms. They add a lot of character to any room they’re mounted in – and offer versatile and immersive slideshows to bring old memories to life again.
That being said, there are a couple of things to be on the lookout for. Firstly, make sure that the digital frame has some sort of built-in wall-mounting system. For example, Pix-Star’s digital picture frames offer a standard VESA mount (the most robust mount) and dedicated hanging holes if you change mounting positions often. There’s also an attachable stand for resting the frame on a flat surface in either orientation.
Secondly, ensure that the frame’s USB/SD card and power inlet ports aren’t blocked when the frame is wall-mounted. Most premium frames consider this during the design phase and it’s usually only an issue with cheap frames. Also, make sure to keep the frame out of direct sunlight and away from any overly hot or humid spots like small kitchens and most bathrooms.
Finally, check that the frame offers Wi-Fi connectivity. This must-have feature lets you send photos and other media to the frame wirelessly, remotely control and manage the frame’s settings, slideshows, and more, and grants access to more advanced features like cloud storage, web music & radio, and more. Pix-Star’s digital frames are a great example of a wall-mounting frame that makes excellent use of Wi-Fi and cloud connectivity – and they offer great value for money for the modern home & family.
Can Pix-Star’s digital picture frame wall mount?
Pix-Star’s digital picture frame can be wall-mounted in several different ways. Pix-Star’s frames offer a robust and sturdy standard VESA mount that lets you mount the frame on the wall in either landscape or portrait. Each frame also comes with dedicated hanging holes for wall-mounting without committing to a full VESA mount. This is a great option if you like to move the frame around regularly.
Pix-Star’s frames are one of the best wall-mounting frames thanks to their extensive Wi-Fi-enabled feature sets and robust real-world performance.

Additionally, Pix-Star’s frames use a 4:3 aspect ratio – which is the ideal ratio for displaying photos taken on smartphones. They’re far better suited to photo slideshows than 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios (photos are frequently surrounded by black pillar bars to fill the space). Pix-Star’s frames have a broad viewing angle and come with either a 10-inch display or a larger 15-inch digital frame.

Wi-Fi isn’t an essential feature of a digital picture frame for the wall. That being said, it goes a very long way to help the frame become versatile and capable enough to cater to the needs of the modern home & family. Another consideration is that Wi-Fi is the key component of features like cloud storage, access to a mobile app & web interface, and wireless photo-sharing.
All premium digital picture frames that can wall mount offer some form of Wi-Fi connectivity. It’s this feature that makes these some of the most functional frames on the market.
