Two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, it is safe to assume that remote working is here to stay. The new normal workspace, wherever that might be, has prompted organisations to identify tech gadgets that allow staff to deal with their workload more effectively.

Logitech strives to empower people to do their work the best way they can, from wherever they are. Focused on innovation and quality, the company designs products and experiences that have a place in people’s everyday lives.

Theresa Relihan, Head of Marketing at Logitech Sub-Saharan Africa, says, “We understand that for many Nigerian companies, deploying remote work solutions at scale is new and can take time to perfect. Each of our products is designed with the customers in mind. We always focus on how people connect and interact in the digital world and ensure an efficient, unique and meaningful experience.”

Here are some tips, provided by Logitech, and supporting products that will to drive efficiency regardless of the location.

How to make a remote setup efficient

Webcams vs laptop cameras: The limitation of embedded cameras (in laptops) undermines the benefits of video collaboration. Problems arise from poor lighting, bad angles and poor resolution or clarity. If the camera isn’t positioned correctly or the user is in a dark room with a bright window behind them, or there is a strong light on one side, it can be difficult for other people to see that person clearly.

The quality of video technology is essential. If the experience of using video for meetings is bad, people are more likely to not attend or be frustrated by the experience. If the visuals and sound are clear, people can be seen easily, and the meeting feels like it is being held in person.

To deliver a superior meeting experience, a business-grade webcam will include a number of features that enhance the image. One of the most important aspects is the ability to compensate for the poor lighting.

Another is the ability to change the field of view and position the camera at a more favourable angle. This allows users to crop out distracting backgrounds, perfectly frame themselves, or capture the entire scene if needed. Integrations and certifications are other considerations. Webcams that are certified for video conferencing software help to ensure problem-free meetings.

While the experience of using embedded cameras is variable – sometimes good, often terrible – the experience with business-grade webcams is generally outstanding and highly predictable.

Wired vs wireless keyboards: A wired keyboard is best if users do not want to deal with input lag, the risk of interference or battery life. However, a wireless keyboard is an ideal choice, if users want to be mobile and use their keyboard from a long range.
