5 Tech Gadgets to Make Quarantine a Little Easier
Ever since the coronavirus sent much of the country into lockdown within their homes, we have been looking for ways to make the adjustment a little easier.
While at first more time at home may have seemed like a gift, the challenges of working from home and entertaining ourselves without being able to go out quickly became apparent. Even as cities begin to reopen, many of us are still working from home, movie theaters and other entertainment remain closed, and we’re staying home more to slow the spread of the virus.
Luckily, there’s plenty of tech that can help make quarantine a bit easier. Keep reading for a few gadgets your home needs right now.
1. WiFi Range Extender
Stay-at-home orders meant that many employees who once trekked to an office found themselves working from home. The dream of rolling out of bed and skipping the commute and the business casual clothes quickly turned into a nightmare of finding space to work and dealing with slow connections.
Now that you’ve had a few months to adjust, you might be thinking about moving your home office away from the kitchen table to your backyard, bed, or basement. That means it’s time to invest in a WiFi range extender.
This simple tool boosts your existing internet so that you can work from wherever you want without sacrificing your signal.
2. Live Streaming
With live events slowly making a comeback, we finally have something new to look forward to on TV.
But if your current television subscription doesn’t offer the right channels, you’ll need to make sure you’re ready to tune in ahead of time so that you don’t miss a minute of the action.
Now is a great time to learn what you need to know to watch the Oscars, Emmy’s, GRAMMY’S, and more, all in real-time.
3. A Device Dedicated to Video Chats
Now that many of us are staying connected to friends and family through video calls, the tiny screen on your smartphone probably just isn’t cutting it.
Google and Amazon, and even Facebook, have all rolled out smart home devices designed to make your video calls a little easier, and bring you a little closer to your loved ones.
Google’s Nest Hub Max, Amazon’s Echo Show, Facebook’s Portal, and other similar devices all feature larger screens, great speakers, and convenient designs you can set up in the kitchen, living room, or anywhere else in your home. Use these to host a virtual family game night, weekly check-ins with family, and more.
4. Robot Vacuum
Being home all day means more opportunities for your house to collect dust, dirt, and clutter.
If you haven’t already bought one, it’s time to upgrade to a robot vacuum. Turn it on, kick back and tune into that live show while your vacuum cleans up for you!
5. Home Theater Projector
Who needs a movie theater when you can bring the big screen home with you?
A home theater projector lets you turn your backyard or living room into a fun theater. Add some popcorn and candy and you’ll quickly forget those movie theaters are still closed.
Upgrading Your Tech to Make Quarantine Easier
From a WiFi range extender to a home theater projector, these tech gadgets can help make working from home easier and quarantine a bit more fun.
