Nexus Basics

What is Nexus?

SAM Node Nexus is a cloud platform that functions similarly to Apple's iCloud. It stores your documents, photos, videos, music, and more and keeps them updated across all your devices. It lets you easily share photos, calendars, and more with friends and family.

How Nexus works

After you set up Nexus on your device, you sign in to Nexus on your other devices and computers using the same NexusID (you only need to do this once). After that, any changes that you make on one device appear on all your other devices. For example, if you create a new album in Gallery on your computer, the album automatically appears in the Nextcloud app on your phone, the Nexus site on your browser, and in your Nexus sync folder on your computer.

How can I use Nexus?

While Nexus is fully accessible from a web browser, it can also be used on your mobile devices. You can access your files and photos using the Nextcloud app from either the App Store (iOS) or the Play Store (Android). The Nextcloud desktop client for Windows, macOS, and Linux will allow you to sync your files automatically across your computers.

Nexus Messages can signed into using an XMPP compatible client, such as Monal for iOS, Conversations for Android, or one of many Jabber/XMPP clients for macOS and Windows.


Nexus Talk can be used by the Nextcloud Talk app from either the App Store (iOS), the Play Store (Android), or within the Nexus website using a modern web browser.















What is a NexusID?

A NexusID is the personal account you use to access SAM Node services, like Nexus, Messages, Talk, Nexus Intelligence, and more. It includes the information you use to sign in, as well as all the contact and security details that you will use across SAM Node services.
