Rounding out the home office: The ideal accessory

Rounding out the home office: The ideal accessory

These components will help you to reach your 100 percent of your performance at home:

USB Hubs

If you use a laptop as your primary computer or regularly do more than just sending emails and writing, a small USB hub might be a really useful tool.

A USB hub will enable you to be more productive by eliminating the need to swap cables in order to access different peripheral devices. Regardless of the number of USB ports built into your machine, a USB hub will allow you to increase the number of devices that you can concurrently support.

Audio Video Cables

HDMI is the cable of choice for the home entertainment market, as we all try to connect more and more devices including laptops, Skybox, Xbox, Blu-Ray, Playstation, and more into our television/projector. If you have more than one device you’d like to have permanently plugged in, consider an HDMI Switch. If you’ve just had it with cables in the house, go Wireless. Wireless HDMI is one way to reduce HDMI cable clutter over a longer distance.

Pro tip: For the HDMI Switch get more inputs than you need. Sure it's possible you'll swap out a console for a new model, but equally likely you'll get something new and need yet another HDMI input. Not a deal-breaker, but definitely a convenience.

You control the playlist in your home office, so a pair of great headphones is an investment in both focus and enjoyment.

If you’re looking for a single side headset, order our Speed-Link handset. With In-earphone and with secure around-ear support with adjustable height it’s designed for a comfortable working experience.

Do you need the headset to connect to a telephone line? We recommend the Dacomex Professional Mono Headset for Telephone Set if you’re in client calls throughout your day.

Do you miss the experience of picking up the phone? Check out our handset, designed for an old-school call experience.

External Hard Drives & Pen Drives

If you’ve filled your laptop with recorded online lessons (or downloaded one too many films. We don’t judge.) and you need a hard drive to archive or free up space on your laptop, consider an external hard drive. Your laptop doesn’t need to slow down, just because the world is taking a breather.

Of course, if you’ve been super efficient during self-isolation, don’t forget to back up your work on an external hard-drive. Backing up your work is something we always recommend for peace of mind. This is your friendly reminder to get it done.

Cable and cord wrangling

The strongest and most flexible fix for your messy desktop cables is also the simplest and cheapest—and it's one you probably discovered back in year 1. It's Velcro, specifically, our Hook & Loop range.

You can bundle up a cable for storage, cinch a tie and leave it on a cable, tie cables to your desk legs, or bundle up excess cable length.

Secondary Monitor

Published studies conclude that by working with dual monitors, overall productivity increases by 20-50%. Reducing your toggling back and forth between tabs, reduces error, and frees up time to complete more projects.
