As working from home becomes more popular, many people are trading in their cubicles and opting to work in their pajamas. No matter what you wear in your home office, having the latest technology to help you along the way can boost your productivity as well as your comfort. Here are four of the best pieces of technology you can have in your home office.
Cameras are a great addition to any home office. This includes security cameras and doorbell. Security cameras can offer you peace of mind as you work. Having your home monitored as well as your work space is recommended, especially if you have clients that visit your home office.
A doorbell camera is a good idea if you have a lot of packages that get delivered, or if you want to filter out people whom you answer the door for. Being able to see who is at the door can prevent you from having to stop working only to answer the door for someone you don’t want to talk to. You can also install an intercom system along with the camera so you can talk to people without having to move from your office. Cameras are also becoming a lot smarter now so you may not even have to interact with interrupting guests at all.
Virtual Voice Assistant
Alexa is one of the most handy, convenient, and amazing pieces of technology you can have in your home. With Alexa, you can have your very own assistant without having to pay your assistant an annual wage. This is perfect for small business owners or people who work from home. Let Alexa do all the grunt work–order more supplies, order your lunch, keep up with your appointment book, make phone calls, sort and read your email to you. Alexa Skills makes Alexa one of the best assistants you could ever have with or without hands. With all those pesky little tasks out of the way, you have more time to work on the tasks that are very important.
All-in-one printers have been a necessity for a home office for a very long time. You don’t want to have four different machines cluttering your home office, so being able to print, fax, scan, and copy from one machine can save you a lot of space.
Today’s all-in-one printers are extremely advanced. Many of them are wireless so you don’t need to have a bulky machine sitting right next to your computer anymore. You also don’t have to worry about having exposed cords which can also make your office look cluttered.
A lot of printers also work with Alexa. With a voice-activated printer, that is less time you spend fumbling with peripherals and more time actually working and being productive.
Hi-Tech Desktop Organizer
Having more space and reducing clutter comes to mind again when thinking about the benefits of a hi-tech desktop organizer. A good organizer would have spaces for all types of supplies like writing instruments, paper clips, staplers, post it notes, and more. It would also have a USB hub as well as a way to hide all of those unsightly wires that computers and all of their peripherals have. A good desktop organizer is basically a centrally contained office supply hub that is always at the tip of your fingers.
Technology Equals Productivity
There are plenty of gadgets and plenty of equipment that you can get to make your home office more productive and your life simpler. The four listed above will certainly make a huge difference in how much you can get done since they are all designed to keep you focused on the bigger picture. The best part is that all four of them are affordable, so you won’t have to break the bank to have a great home office.
