You haven’t been to the office for a while now, and it’s apparent that you’re pretty good at this working from home thing. You no longer need to use the kitchen table and have a designated area established as your new workspace. It’s now time to take it to the next level and automate your Tempe home office. Devices like smart lights and smart thermostats can make your area more efficient, more secure, and more conducive for work.
The question you need to answer is: What components should you think about integrating, and how can you optimize your Tempe home office with home automation?
Create an ideal setting for your online video meetings with smart lighting
One of the best advantages of ditching the office is that you won’t have to deal with harsh light from fluorescent bulbs. Illumination from natural light through a window or a more appealing light source can boost morale, lessen the strain on your eyes, and enhance the overall vibe. However, some light bulbs may also cause problems on video calls or computer screens. Of course, you can keep rising from your desk, strolling to the wall switch, and flipping on and off your lights. But that can become a pain when you complete that task repeatedly during your work hours.
When you install a smart light, you can better control your lighting without ever having to get up. All you need to do is locate the lighting on your cellphone application and lower them until you have the light level you need. You even have the option of presetting your smart bulbs to turn off at the end of the day, telling you that you need to step away from the computer screen.
Smart thermostats let you easily adjust the temperature
As well as controlling your smart lights with your smartphone app, you also have the ability to manage your comfort levels. As you get warm throughout your working hours, are you rushing to another area of your house to alter the thermostat settings? Or do you stay there and then get drowsy because your room is too toasty? Keep in mind computers will also add to your warmth -- especially if 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 come upon the right temperature. This control is lovely on pleasant days, as the sun comes through the windows and causes hot spots in your work area. However, on variable weather days, you could find that you're remotely controlling the thermostat many times a day!
Automate your home office in Tempe with the help of a smart speaker
Despite the fact that smart light bulbs and thermostats are likely the simplest method to automate your Tempe home office, you have the option of adding a whole host of connected devices. For example, a video doorbell lets you know when boxes have been delivered without constantly checking the front porch. A smart lock have the ability to keep your home office secure. You could even use a smart plug that allows you to operate common conveniences, like your coffee maker or printer.
If you are looking to combine these smart items together, you can streamline with a home automation system like ones offered by Vivint, or you have the choice of adding a more complex mix of skills programmed to your Amazon or Google device. Regardless of the path you take, you have the ability to use your smart speaker to manage all your home automation devices with your voice. For example, say "Lights dim 10%" to remove glare. Or instruct your device by saying, "Alexa, join my meeting," and automatically adjust your office with the optimal light, thermostat settings, and volume for those fun video conferences.
