The Digital Frame for Grandparents You Don’t Want to Miss!


What is the simplest digital frame for grandparents?

The Pix-Star digital frame for grandparents is one of the only high-end Wi-Fi frames made with both families and grandparents in mind. This is seen through features made for grandparents (remote configuration, automatic photo-sharing, simple interface, controls, etc.) and Pix-Star’s quick setup/ease of use.

Using Pix-Star’s remote configuration feature, you can manage and control up to 25 Pix-Star frames from anywhere in the world from one account, adjust their settings, start and change slideshows, change how the motion sensor functions, and much more.

Pix-Star’s web album feature lets you sync and save photo albums from a dozen external sources to any of your Pix-Star frames. Web albums are saved to internal storage and are available to access and view while offline. The most elderly-friendly part of Pix-Star’s web albums is their automatic updates. Once a web album is linked, set it to sync automatically. Each time you add new photos, Pix-Star will sync the new photos to all linked Pix-Star frames – automating the most time-consuming part of the photo-sharing process.

Together with Pix-Star’s remote configuration feature, grandparents can receive all of the latest photos on their frames, view them in slideshows, and more – all without having to lift a finger. It’s perfect for grandparents or any family members that aren’t very tech-savvy. They can share photos with the rest of the family using the simple Pix-Star Snap mobile and even send pictures over email! It’s so simple that getting your grandparents involved will be easier than ever before!

How to remotely control a digital frame for grandparents?

Pix-Star’s remote configuration feature is quite versatile when compared to what most competing frames offer. You can manage and control up to 25 Pix-Star frames from a single user account using Pix-Star’s web dashboard. Here you can adjust each frame’s settings, start slideshows, manage local and cloud storage, import and update web albums, and much more.

Using Pix-Star’s remote configuration feature gives you control over most of the frame’s features. You can change and adjust slideshow settings (play order, frequency, transition speed, etc.), adjust how the motion sensor works, set auto-on/off schedules, and much more. You can start slideshows from specific web albums that have already been synced and saved on the frame – and change between them – from anywhere in the world.

Can a digital frame for grandparents work without Wi-Fi?

Pix-Star’s digital frame for grandparents offers extensive offline functionality thanks to its 8GB of internal storage, internal file browser, USB/SD card support, and USB/SD card plug & play feature. Pix-Star doesn’t restrict the maximum size of supported USB/SD cards, so you can connect any size of drive/card loaded with photos and play slideshows directly on the frame (without needing to copy the USB/SD card’s content to the frame’s internal storage).

With Pix-Star – and almost all other high-end frames – you need to connect to Wi-Fi to download pending photos, update web albums, and receive photos/videos from the mobile app and email. All incoming photos are saved to the frame’s internal storage and are available offline. Additionally, you can use a USB or SD card for potentially unlimited storage space.

How to send pictures to a digital frame for grandparents?

Using the Pix-Star Snap mobile app, you can send up to 250 photos to several Pix-Star frames at the same time. This is ideal for grandparents as anyone in the family can send pictures to their frames from anywhere in the world. Family members can send entire collections and folders to make bulk-sharing simpler – and you can set your grandparents’ frames to display all incoming photos in the current slideshow as they’re received.

Other popular ways to share photos to a digital frame for grandparents include emailing photos (as attachments), viewing photos from a connected USB or SD card, and importing them as web albums from a dozen external sources including Facebook, Instagram, and Google Drive & Photos, and more.

Can a digital frame for grandparents mount on the wall?

Pix-Star’s digital frame for grandparents mounts on the wall with a standard VESA mount and additional dedicated hanging holes. Pix-Star supports both landscape and portrait mounting, with slideshows being able to play in either orientation. Additionally, you can rotate pictures within the slideshow by pressing the “Menu” button, navigating down to the rotate icon, and clicking to rotate the image 90 degrees at a time.

Wall mounting a digital frame for grandparents is a great idea as they don’t need to worry about knocking the frame over. The motion sensor and auto-on/off schedule can easily be set to make sure the frame is awake when someone is at home or in the room. Pix-Star’s broad viewing angle, handheld remote, and remote configuration support (via the Pix-Star web interface) give grandparents and families all the control they need over their frame.

Do digital frames for grandparents play video?

Pix-Star digital frames for grandparents can play 2-minute video clips and audio recordings. Send video clips to any of your Pix-Star frames using the Pix-Star Snap mobile app from anywhere in the world. You need to select the video from your phone’s gallery. Audio recordings are recorded live within the app.

Unlike many other top digital frames for grandparents, Pix-Star’s frames let you play video clips in slideshows alongside photos. While 2-minute clips might not seem like much, it’s more than most other frames on the market in this price range.

Some digital frames even charge extra subscription fees to unlock and extend video and audio playback (e.g., Nixplay and Skylight frames). Aura’s frames can’t play video or audio, and Dragon Touch frames only let you play 30-second video clips.
