Top picks to replicate your office environment at home
Work from home (WFH) may prove to be challenging and it is crucial to have a proper setup. Let us help you build that perfect WFH setup to maximize productivity.
While some of the workers find it easy to WFH, there are others who are not adept to WFH culture and are facing difficulties to cop up with their productivity. If you are among those people, don’t worry. We have come up with a list of useful gadgets that will help you survive WFH like a pro.
Cable clutter is one of the most frequent distractions, which is why we recommend everyone to get a Bluetooth keyboard. The one from Satechi is a good buy because it has backlit keys, which is extremely rare for a totally wireless keyboard. You can connect it to three devices using the Bluetooth pairing buttons above the number pad. Satechi’s keyboard can be recharged using a USB-C cable (included), so you don’t have to worry about keeping a stock of batteries.
An ultrawide monitor is the best purchase you can ever make for WFH. You can have three full-size windows up at the same time or countless windows overlapping. However, any monitor that is at least 34 inches in size with 1440dp or better resolution is what we recommend.
