I am looking for an app that will allow me to transfer files from my Android device via the wireless connection. This device is used in a business setting to take pictures. At a later point these pictures are transferred to a workstation. Currently this means that I can do one of the following
- Find the device's cable, plug it into the machine and device, navigate to the storage location on the device, click/drag images to the workstation
- Utilize Samba shares on the device to manage this wirelessly. Still requires navigation to storage location to transfer data. Also requires root access, which voids my warranty. It also requires that IT (or someone else with experience) set up network shares that all users can access.
- Utilize bluetooth. Not an option as the workstation doesn't have a bluetooth connection
Ideally, this tool will allow me to select files to transfer and they will go to a predefined location on the workstation. I won't have to select the "save to" location each time. I do not want to utilize Dropbox/Google Drive/other cloud service due to the business nature of these images. It does not need to operate over the cellular network. I'd also prefer not to manage network shares for all workstations.
- A daemon running on the workstation is acceptable, as long as it is not utilizing a third party storage location (Dropbox/Box/Google Drive)
- Can transfer any type of file from device to PC
- I'd prefer not to have open shares on the network if at all possible
- Operates on wireless (non-cellular) network
- No need to navigate to save to location each time data is transferred
- Data does not need to transfer to workstation automatically. A process to bulk select files is acceptable. If an automatic transfer occurs, need the ability to filter what does and does not get transferred (ie. all files generated by the device do not need to end up on the workstation)
The workstation is running Windows 7 with plans to upgrade to Windows 10 at some point in the future. The Android device is running 4.4.4 but will be upgraded to Lollipop "soon". As this will be a business solution, I expect this will not be a free application on the Play Store. That is fine.
