5 great tools to help you work from home

Victoria has gone into stage 4 restrictions and many have no choice but to work from home for the foreseeable future.

Here are 5 great tools to help you get the most out of your working from home space:

  1. A really good webcam with a built-in microphone. Communication is key when working from home and online video meetings are the next best thing to in-person meetings. Logitech has been the gold standard for external webcams and computer peripherals for decades. It’s worth spending the extra money for a full 1080p Logitech webcam designed for business with a great builtin microphone.
  2. A WiFi range extender is a cheap way to bring a strong WIFI signal to your home office assuming your modem/router is in another room. A fast internet connection is essential to work from home successfully.
  3. Soundproofing for your office – The most difficult part about working from home is noise and distraction.  Family noise, dog noise, the neighbour’s lawnmower, the list goes on. Block out home noise with acoustic foam.
  4. Excellent computer speakers – When you meet with colleagues or clients online, you can’t afford to miss what is being said. Invest in high-quality computer speakers that offer clear crisp sound and dynamic range. A great option is the wireless Audioengine A2+.
  5. A good quality monitor with a big screen – A good monitor can be the difference between a productive day and a wasted day. The Samsung 28inch UHD Premium series will keep you at your desk working productively.
