Tech upgrades for productivity
Technological innovation is constantly changing. Due to the pandemic, people have been getting used to home office setups. The space that one works from is essential for one’s productivity. Remote workers should take the time to choose the right setup as it is a worthy investment. Using outdated technology can negatively impact work. Adopting upgrades not only leads to more productivity but it also gives users a competitive edge. There will also be fewer errors. Given below are some tech upgrades that would help to increase speed and productivity at work.
Wi-Fi 6E Mesh System
The Orbi Quad-band WIFI 6E Mesh System by Netgear gives faster speeds and can be used on up to 200 devices. If a wireless router is older than 8 years, it is time to upgrade to this system. A pack of 3 costs $1500. The price would appear reasonable as the hardware is substantial. It works effectively in large homes. The kit comes with a single router and two satellites that can be placed in the house and can boost the network. The router and satellite are 11-inches tall. It also has a lot of built-in tools that include parental controls and security.
A great pair of speakers can make a lot of difference. Portable Bluetooth speakers are becoming popular because of their connectivity features. The Sonos Roam is a popular pick because of its design and sound. Priced at $169, it is a versatile speaker. It supports hands-free voice commands and includes wireless charging. Its size may be small but it delivers a powerful performance and features prominent bass. It comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and can become part of the wider, multi-room Sonos system. With Alexa on board, it works as a smart speaker too. This speaker can also be used outdoors as it has a waterproof and dustproof build.
Motis by Deskview
This lightweight laptop stand weighs just 4.5 pounds. It can be easily slipped into a backpack. It can be installed and removed in seconds so that the user can have a personal desk no matter wherever they are. Motis has a suction cup that can hold weight up to 40 pounds and a vacuum-tight seal that does not come loose until the locking mechanism is released. It is priced at $195 and can create a steady surface. The suction cup can be used to stick the stand to a window that will double up as a desk with a view.
Nest by Orbitkey
This is a 10-watt wireless charger. It is a hard-case organizer and can safely store fragile items. The box has a charger in the lid and can organize office essentials like a stylus, memory cards, keys, and even a snack. The dividers are repositionable hook-and-loop, so the space inside can be customized. The dividers stick to the cloth surface firmly. This also prevents the things inside from jostling around.
