The beginning of 2020 brought telework, with a rapid change in labor standards. At the same time, home automation has undergone a transmutation with the emerging need for solutions that would help us work at home.
If until then the main IoT gadgets were used to assure the user of the security of his home while he worked outside, now we work at home and there are even more affordable products that we can buy for “Smart Home”.
So we chose some products that you can buy to help you work better at home, from comfort to lighting.
1. Streamline home control with smart outlets
Price: since € 9.99 at Amazon ES
TP-Link smart sockets, available in multi-unit packs, can be controlled by voice with Google Assistant, or Amazon Alexa. They have Wi-Fi connection and can also be controlled via smartphone via app.
This home automation solution helps us, for example, to connect or disconnect an appliance without having to leave the sofa or the work table. They are ideal for, for example, turning on a heater or fan while we are busy working.
2. Keep an eye on everything with TP-Link cameras
Price: since € 27.99 at Amazon ES
Surveillance cameras are available in several configurations, but the best have bi-directional communication and 360 rotation for full coverage. This means that we can hear and speak through the camera, in addition to seeing everything that goes on around us.
Especially for those who work at home and have children, with these cameras we can better control what goes on in the bedroom, or in the living room. Through the smartphone we can see the feed, listening and failing to control children or pets.
Fixed surveillance cameras are even cheaper
Price: since € 22.99 at Amazon ES
They are fixed points of surveillance with wide-angle lens and night vision to capture what goes on around. They send the image to the smartphone so that the user is always aware of what happens at home.
They are easy to assemble and perhaps the best home automation product for those just starting out, being generally inexpensive and intuitive.
3. TP-Link smart lamps are good and cheap
Price: since € 9.98 at Amazon ES
Light control is probably the most popular commodity that home automation can offer us. The simple fact of being able to turn on, off and control the light intensity with voice commands from Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, in itself, is incredible.
We warn the reader, however, that it is difficult to just buy a light bulb and that, after the first one, it is likely that he wants to exchange all the ones he has at home for these really comfortable solutions. They can also be controlled through the app.
To work, natural light is always preferable, however, it is not always available. As such, we recommend these good and cheap smart lamps, with 806 lumens, the equivalent of light to an incandescent bulb of 60 W.
The best solution to increase productivity is an intelligent lamp that allows you to regulate its intensity and adapt it to each need.
“Smart Home” went from luxury to necessity in 2021
A year later, in 2021, the perception changed completely in society. Being more efficient when working at home has gone from being a mere option to a necessity for many users.
At the same time, the Internet of Things (IoT) is experiencing growth that exceeds all industry expectations. From lighting solutions, virtual assistants to schedule meetings, or air conditioning solutions, home automation is here to stay.
The future is already here and betting on home automation will help us to be happier, but also more efficient.
