You've been out of the office a while now, and it’s clearly evident that you're a pro at this work-from-home situation. You're off the dining room table and have a quiet space established as your new workspace. It’s now time to take it to the next level and automate your Monroe home office. Devices like smart thermostats, speakers, and lights have the ability to make your area more suitable for work.
The fundamental question that needs answering is: What components should you consider installing, and how can you optimize your Monroe home office with home automation?
Illuminate your online video meetings with smart lighting
One of the greatest perks of ditching the office is that you no longer have to work beneath rows of fluorescent lights. Illumination from a soft light or window is known to improve your mood, lessen the strain on your eyes, and enhance the overall vibe. Still, some light bulbs may also create issues on online conferences or on your computer’s screen. Naturally, you can keep rising from your desk, strolling to your light switch, and turning your lights on or off. But that may turn into a pain if you make that trip repeatedly during your work hours.
By using a smart light, you can better control your lighting without ever having to get up. Just pull up the smart lights on your mobile app and lower them until you have the light level you need. You also have the ability to set your smart bulbs to shut down when the day is over, letting you know that it's time to log off.
Smart thermostats let you easily adjust the temperature
As well as controlling your lights through your mobile app, you also have the ability to adjust your comfort levels. When you get warm during the day, are you rushing to another room to alter the thermostat settings? Or do you keep working and start falling asleep because your office is a bit too cozy? In addition, your computer will add to your warmth -- particularly when you spend the day with a laptop in constant contact with your legs.
A smart thermostat lets you to fiddle to your heart's delight to find the perfect temperature. This ability to adjust is helpful on a sunny day, when the sunshine comes through the windows and causes hot spots within your space. However, on days with wide weather fluctuations, you might see that you're remotely controlling the thermostat 3-4 times throughout the morning and afternoon!
Automate your home office in Monroe with your smart speaker
Even though smart light bulbs and thermostats tend to be the quickest path to automate your Monroe home office, you are able to bring together a wide array of smart components. For instance, a doorbell camera lets you know when boxes have been delivered without going to the front door. Smart locks have the ability to secure your sensitive information. You might also incorporate a smart plug that allows you to operate household devices, like your coffee maker or printer.
To tie all your smart components together, you can go with an easy-to-use command center that comes as part of your Vivint system, or you have the choice of adding a more convoluted assortment of skills within your Amazon or Google device. Regardless of the path you take, you can use your smart speaker to control your smart components through simple voice commands. For example, say "Lights dim 10%" to get the glare off your screen. Or say, "Alexa, Zoom call," and instantly transform your work space with the ideal light, temperature settings, and sound for your video conference calls.
