Thank you for checking out Eanix. We are working on something really cool that ties in with awesome-selfhosted, self-hosted podcast, ease of use, and more.
The intent of this project is to create what many celebrities and wealthy individuals have, but at a cost that the lower middle class can afford.
There are a few key factors that I would like to discuss.
- Online Privacy – Privacy online has become a hot topic for debate. People are slowly beginning to realize what the power of metadata can actually achieve. Not to mention scandals such as Cambridge Analytica that Facebook had to deal with – forcing them to lock down and cripple a good bit of functionality.
- Online Safety – Another important topic is online safety. When you sign up for a web app, only to use it once, you still give it permissions. Sometimes these permissions are taken advantage of and can harm your safety online.
- Kids 13-17 – Advertising, & Hollywood. Disney was caught sending subliminal messages through it’s VHS tapes years ago. Home Server by Eanix grants you as a parent the controls necessary to protect your family from predators. Not just sexual predators, but those out to con you out of money or dignity. As for advertising – you can choose to block all advertising if you desire. I see no problems doing this for the kids, but advertising is a way that many site owners make money; so if you can handle the ads then we encourage you to leave them on for adults.
- Content Catalog – Streaming is done from your Home Server, and you are responsible for what media shows up for the rest of the family to see. This puts you in full control of what is shown to your child, which is a major factor in this day and age. I for one would not want my child to see any LGBTQ+ content. LGB maybe, but not any further.
- Centralized Family Backup – All devices can backup to your Home Server. Meanwhile, server backups run often and can use any S3 bucket for the backup. By default the service Storj is used.
- Apps For The Family – Unlike traditional phone or tablet apps that install only in one place and heavily rely on the cloud for any content sharing, the home server runs apps on the server. These apps are accessed via the internet (or intranet, if locally) and can be installed onto your mobile device in a way that feels almost exactly like an app you would install through the store. All content is safely stored on your server and not in the cloud or on your device, which could be lost or stolen. This concept is somewhat derived from Firefox’s OS or even Web OS, and has native support on both iOS and Android. Apps from your home server are more interactive than apps that store data on your mobile device and sync to the cloud. Be sure to check out our app showcases to learn more about the apps available on Home Server by Eanix.
