Working From Home

In recent months, millions of businesses across the world have had to radically alter the way in which they work in order to run smoothly and safely. For many companies, this means a large number of their employees have started working from home. 

Fortunately, working from home has proven to have numerous benefits, from eliminating tiresome commutes to boosting productivity and morale in the workplace. However, it is also important to remember that not everyone is equipped for office work at their home, especially in regards to technology. After all, many people have set up their ‘offices in dining rooms and bedrooms during this time. Therefore, we’ve put together a list of useful technologies you can purchase to make working from that much easier!

  1. An external Hard drive

Since you are working from home, you may be required to carry out your usual day-to-day activities on your home computer or laptop. As this was previously used for leisure purposes only, it may not have the same capabilities or storage as your workplace tech. As a result, load times for documents may be slower and you may struggle to access certain files. One thing you can do in order to combat this is to purchase an external hard drive. An external hard drive can: 

  • Backup documents
  • Store a range of files
  • Improve the speed of your pc/laptop

There are a range of external hard drives on offer, so it is important that you consider all the options available for purchasing. Check out this online guide that helps you find the best external hard drive for Mac equipment.

  1. Some Headphones

Working from home can easily result in getting distracted – whether that is due to working in proximity to your sofa and TV, or family members who may also be working from home – therefore it is also important that you invest in a set of noise-cancelling headphones to minimise distractions. They are also particularly useful during online meetings via zoom or Google meets.

  1. A Webcam

Another useful piece of technology to incorporate into your home office is a webcam. When we cannot have meetings in person, video conferences are the next best thing as you can see the person you are talking to and connect on a deeper level. However, some webcams, especially those on older devices don’t offer the best quality. Therefore, you may benefit from purchasing a new webcam device to use for meetings.

If you don’t fancy buying a webcam that you’ll only use for work, you can use a canon DSLR as a webcam on Windows devices

  1. Software

When working from home, you also need to ensure your computer/laptop hosts the necessary software required for you to do your job. Office 365 is a good starting point, providing you with access to word documents, presentations and spreadsheets with the click of a button. You may also want to ensure you have access to cloud storage apps, cloud storage apps which mean you can safely access important files wherever you are.

I have to say that I am biased, I love Xiaomi products! And as a loyal fan I checked also this LED Ceiling light which I absolutely love. It seems like a normal ceiling light but it has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth and also 240 LED by OSRAM. Also comes with a handy (and beautiful) remote control. The Yeelight Smart LED Ceiling Light is right now on a flash sale for just $74.99 / €68.45 / £61.17! 

The dual-chip three-way dimming system allows a flexible adjustment of brightness and color temperature. In addition, a moonlight mode which gives the look of the moon when turned on is surprisingly comfortable. Being a smart lamp, the light can be controlled by smartphone through WiFi or Bluetooth. The Bluetooth remote controller of the Yeelight Smart LED Ceiling Light allows you to remotely switch it on and off without even being in the same room.  Read more

Gearbest.com the Asian direct competitor of Amazon.com get’s 3 years old! In order to celebrate accordingly it offers thousands of products on sale! The sales extend in every single one category, from Home & Garden to Apparel and of course into Electronics and Computers departments as well. In these 3 years the HK based super-store brings the best prices available since they are able to make deals directly with the manufacturers / factories that eliminate the re-sellers. Inside the super-store you will find thousands of genuine products and some of the most known brands in China which is a huge market but now all known to the western world, at least not yet. Of course there are also low quality products as in any store but that’s why I do research before recommending a product, in order to give you the best possible for your spend money.

The 3rd Anniversary brings great buying opportunities! There are products with more that 70% sale currently on their store and products that literally sell for $0.99. On the main anniversary page you will find more on these that do not appear in the $0.99 category: http://www.gearbest.com/m-promotion-active-283.html?lkid=10569015 Read more
