10 Ways To Make Working From Home Work For You

Have you found yourself working from home in the wake of Coronavirus (Covid-19)? Struggling with adjusting, or looking to create a comfortable, practical and productive setup? This blog will outline 10 simple ways to make working from home, work for you.

1. Create a permanent workspace

This will help you to get into a rhythm and the right mindset for productivity. However not everyone will have the space for a desk and as such the Kikkerland iBed can help solve this issue by providing a flat surface for anywhere in the house, ideal for turning your sofa or bed into a mini-office.

2.  Sit at your desk correctly

If you do find yourself sitting at your desk at home, reduce your risk of back pain by adjusting your chair so your lower back is properly supported. A correctly adjusted chair will reduce the strain on your back. It is also important to take frequent short breaks to give the back muscles a chance to relax whilst others take the strain.


3.  Access full strength WIFI anywhere in the home

Stay connected with NETGEAR N200 Wi-Fi- Extender, which expands the signal coverage in every corner of your home. Plugged in to the power socket it works with any standard Wi-Fi router & is ideal for keeping your laptop and devices connected. This could also open up a new home office workspace that was previously out of range


4.  Utilise your phone or tablet on your desk space

With just a simple product like the Olixar Aspect Premium Universal Metal Smartphone & Tablet Stand you will be able to multitask by making use of your phone or tablet as an additional resource. Just last week I attended a video meeting on my tablet, whilst simultaneously working on my computer. This sturdy stand is not only multi-purpose but also constructed from premium grade metal

5. Develop a morning routine

A great way to focus the mind and prepare for work. By developing a routine you will mentally prepare yourself for the day ahead. Setting an alarm, getting dressed and eating breakfast are just three basic things many people would give the slip with nobody to pass judgment, but are key to a productive day of work at home.


6.  Protect you  and your family privacy with anti-spy webcam covers

With all crises comes opportunists. You could be at risk if you have had to recently download video conferencing software, use a webcam; or brought a new webcam into the home. Ease your mind and make sure you are one step ahead and protected. The Olixar Anti-Hack Webcam Covers for Phones, Lablets and Tablets will protect you and your family’s privacy by ensuring all your device cameras are covered when not in use.

7. Check-in with Co-Workers frequently, and ensure cameras are turned on when video conferencing

Naturally, agenda focused meetings will have to take place, whilst occasional casual calls with your team will help everybody to stay connected. In my experience, engaging in video conferencing were cameras have to be turned on is a far more rewarding experience for everybody. Subtle body language and context can be lost in space. Seeing people’s reactions is crucial for effective conversations to occur.


8.  Use your tablet as an additional screen by mounting it to your laptop

Have the ultimate multi-monitor setup with the Mountie+ from Ten One Design. Clip your tablet or smartphone on to your laptop for seamless multi-tasking, browse the web or even video call simultaneously

9.  Invest in a good pair of headphones

Even if you have purchased a new laptop or smartphone recently, you will want to invest in a quality pair of headphones

A good pair of headphones complete with a mic would make conference calling a breeze, whilst keeping your meeting private from others in your household. You should look out for certain features such as the noise-canceling feature, which will improve the clarity of your phone calls. Other beneficial features would be long battery life and BlueTooth compatibility


10.  End your day with a routine

Just as you should start your day with a routine, it is crucial to end it with one. To get the best out of working from home you need to create a habit that signals the close of the working day. It could be as simple as shutting down your laptop, talking the dog for a walk, or leaving your dedicated workspace and shutting the door behind you. Whatever you choose to do, do it consistently, this will allow you to relax and unwind.

How to Improve WiFi Around the House

We’ve all been in a situation where we’ve wanted to stream a movie, game online with friends, video call loved ones or simply try to get some work done but then find you’ve not got a WiFi connection. This is potentially caused by a ‘WiFi dead spot’ in your house, which in simple terms means the WiFi signal from your router isn’t reaching that specific area. The dead zones are normally caused by stairs, certain electrical appliances and even certain materials that were used to build your house. This is where a WiFi range extender may be the solution.

What is a WiFi Extender and how does it work?

WiFi extenders are generally simple to install and work by pairing directly to your router and then boosting the signal out to areas which were previously not receiving the original WiFi signal.


Now that we’ve explained how a WiFi Extender works, you may have decided that you require one for your home and so we highly recommend the Netgear N300.

Netgear N300 WiFi Range Extender

Unlike other WiFi extenders available, the small and compact Netgear N300 plugs into your mains socket and so is great for space saving. Providing a wireless signal capable of up to 300Mbps, the two antennas provide a strong signal which will reach all areas of your home, whilst the LED indicators allow you to find the best location for optimal coverage. Most importantly, the N300 Extender is compatible with most routers, regardless of the brand or the internet provider.

Another great feature of the Netgear N300 is the integrated fast Ethernet port. This is ideal for connecting Smart TV’s and game consoles which may require a stronger connection.

How to Protect the Samsung Galaxy S20’s Camera Module

The camera module found on all three Samsung Galaxy S20 Series handset’s has increased in size vastly in comparison to that found on predecessor S10 Series. With the flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra having the largest camera ‘bump’ of the three new handsets, it’s certainly been a talking point about how much the module sticks out, rather than sitting flush with the back of the phone. As a result S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra owners may be worrying about scratching the camera and so we’ve found the best ways of to protect the camera module.

Olixar Tempered Glass Camera Protectors – Twin Pack

Available for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, S20 Plus and the S20, the team over at Olixar have used their expertise in screen protectors to create a tempered glass protector to protect the camera hump. Designed to be ultra thin, the tough 9H rated glass camera protector provides protection against scratching and drops. Most importantly, you’ll be able to continue taking amazing photos, as the camera protector ensures image clarity is not effected.

Available as a twin pack, the camera protectors are certainly value for money, especially when considering the exceptionally high costs of repairing a camera module on any of the new Samsung S20 Series phones.

Olixar NovaShield Bumper Case

Olixar NovaShield Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Bumper Case

A great alternative to the tempered glass protector, is the NovaShield case from Olixar. Whilst the NovaShield is a great way to guard and showcase your new Samsung Galaxy phone, it’s unique raised lip design is the talking point here. The raised lip around the camera ensures when your phone is left flat, the camera won’t be in direct contact with the surface and so preventing any scratching. Additionally the case combines an angled polycarbonate protector with the raised lip. This helps to prevent any reflection from the camera flash when in use. It’s also worth noting for ultimate protection, a camera module can still be applied with this case.

The NovaShield is available for the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra in both black and clear colour variations.
