As PhotoSync uses WebDAV to send files, PhotoPrism will automatically start importing/indexing each time it receives new files.

As long as you run PhotoPrism on a device where it is possible to enable Samba (Windows File Sharing), you can use this free opensource Android app: SMBSync2 - Github | SMBSync2 - Google Play
