You've been out of the office a while now, and it seems that you're a pro at this working from home thing. You’ve moved on from the dining room table and have a designated area set up as your home office. You’re now prepared to take it to the next level and automate your Las Vegas home office. Devices like easily controllable smart lighting, thermostats, and speakers will make your area more efficient, more secure, and more conducive for your job.
But what components should you invest in, and how can you optimize your Las Vegas home office with home automation?
Create an ideal setting for your Zoom calls with smart lighting
One of the greatest perks of working from home is that you don’t have to sit under rows of fluorescent lights. Illuminating your space with light coming through a window or a softer bulb is known to lift your spirits, reduce eye strain, and enhance the overall vibe. However, some lighting options might also create issues on video calls or on your computer’s screen. Of course, you can keep getting up, walking over to the switch on your wall, and manually adjusting your lights. But that will turn into an annoyance when you are faced with this chore multiple times a day.
By using a smart light, you are able to easily manage your lights without leaving your chair. All you need to do is locate the lighting on your mobile app and adjust them until you have the light level you need. You also have the ability to set your smart bulbs to turn off when the day is over, signifying that you need to step away from the computer screen.
Smart thermostats let you easily adjust the temperature
Along with controlling your smart lights via your cell phone application, you will also be able to adjust your comfort levels. As you get warm over the course of your day, are you walking to another room to change the thermostat? Or do you keep working and start falling asleep because it's stuffy within the house? And computers generate heat -- most notably when you work with a laptop resting on your body.
A smart thermostat allows you to fiddle to your heart's delight to discover the perfect temperature. This convenient access is lovely on a sunny day, when the sunshine streams through and causes hot spots within your space. On other variable weather days, you might see that you're changing temperature levels from your smartphone many times throughout the morning and afternoon!
Automate your home office in Las Vegas with your smart speaker
Despite the fact that smart light bulbs and thermostats tend to be the quickest path to automate your Las Vegas home office, you can add a whole host of connected devices. As an illustration, a video doorbell lets you know when deliveries have been made without you needing to go check. Smart locks can secure your sensitive information. You could even use a smart plug that allows you to operate household devices, like your coffee maker or printer.
When you want to connect these smart items within a single platform, you can go 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 Echo or Google Home. Either way, you are able to utilize your smart speaker to manage all your home automation devices through simple voice commands. For example, say "Dim lights to 60 percent" to eliminate glare on your monitor. Or instruct your device by saying, "Alexa, start my meeting," and automatically adjust your office with the ideal light, thermostat settings, and sound for those fun video conferences.
