Looking for a user-friendly alternative to PiKVM?
Look no further than the TinyPilot Voyager 2a.
The TinyPilot Voyager 2a and PiKVM are both KVM over IP devices, but they offer starkly different experiences.
From day one, TinyPilot's top priority has been user experience.
TinyPilot features a powerful web interface that allows you to control every feature of your device directly from the browser.
PiKVM prioritizes breadth of features over ease of use.
Many of PiKVM's features are not available through the web UI. Instead, the user must search online for command-line instructions and configuration file formats to achieve what they need.
To exercise the full functionality of PiKVM, users must install a custom circuit board on top of their motherboard and re-route their power supply's ATX pins.
To install TinyPilot Voyager 2a, just plug in three cables. No motherboard surgery required.
TinyPilot offers a searchable support forum, and we answer most questions within hours.
In addition to our support forum, TinyPilot offers easy private email support through our contact page.
PiKVM has no public help forum and does not offer email support. Instead, PiKVM has a support channel on their Discord chat server, which is not organized or easily searchable.
PiKVM sells its hardware through a network of independent distributors. If you have an issue, will you contact PiKVM or the distributor?
When you purchase from TinyPilot, you can contact a single team for all of your questions. We take responsibility for the full experience, including shipping your device to you, making sure you get up and running, and answering any questions as you use TinyPilot on a day-to-day basis.
