The commute to the office hasn’t happened for quite some time, and it’s apparent that you’re pretty good at this remote work reality. You're off the dining room table and have a quiet space established as your new workspace. Now you're ready for the next step to automate your San Bernardino home office. Features like smart lights and smart thermostats will make your new digs more efficient, more secure, and more conducive for working.
The fundamental question that needs answering is: What components should you think about integrating, and how can you optimize your San Bernardino home office with home automation?
Set the stage for your video conferences with smart light bulbs
One of the greatest perks of abandoning office life is that you no longer have to sit under rows of fluorescent lights. Sitting under natural light through a window or a more appealing light source will improve your mood, decrease eye strain, and elevate the room’s general feel. However, some light bulbs may also cause problems on online conferences or computer screens. Naturally, you can keep standing up, stepping over to the wall switch, and manually adjusting your lights. But that can become an annoyance if you are faced with this chore multiple times a day.
When you install a smart light, you have greater command over your lighting without leaving your chair. Just pull up the lights on your smartphone app and dim them until you no longer feel eye strain. You also have the ability to set your smart lights to flip 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
In addition to controlling your lights through your mobile app, you also have the ability to manage your temperature settings. As you get hot throughout your working hours, 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? Keep in mind computers will also give off heat as well -- particularly when you work with a laptop in constant contact with your legs.
A smart thermostat lets you to easily alter comfort levels until you come upon the ideal temperature. This ability to adjust is helpful on a sunny day, when the sunshine streams through and generates hotter areas in your work area. However, on days with wide weather fluctuations, you could find that you're changing temperature levels from your smartphone many times throughout the morning and afternoon!
Automate your home office in San Bernardino with the help of a smart speaker
While smart light bulbs and thermostats tend to be the best way to automate your San Bernardino home office, you have the option of adding a whole host of smart components. As an illustration, a smart doorbell shows you when boxes have been delivered without going to the front door. Smart locking systems will keep your home office secure. You might also incorporate a smart plug that automates household devices, like printers and coffee machines.
If you are looking to combine these devices into one place, you can go with a smart home system, like Vivint, or you have the choice of adding a more hodge-podge dump of skills in your Amazon or Google device. Whatever you choose, you are able to utilize your smart speaker to manage your smart components by simply speaking. For example, say "Dim lights to 60 percent" to remove glare. Or give the instruction, "Alexa, Zoom call," and have your entire home office turn the proper light, comfort levels, and speaker volume for those fun video conferences.
