Home Office Productivity Improved Using A Wireless Intercom System - Articles Surfing
One of the most frustrating things about working from home is when you*re on an important phone call and the door bell rings. Then you have to decide whether to put the call on hold and make the journey to the front door for what could very well just be the neighbor girl selling cookies.
The trip to the front door really isn*t the worst of it. It's the interruption to your concentration that causes a drop in your productivity. If whoever is at the door is a sales person or a pizza delivery person for a pizza you didn*t order, then you may add a little anger on top of your interrupted concentration.
Once you get rid of the distraction and head back to your office, now you have to get back in the mode of concentration you were previously in. This is not always an easy task, especially if you*re still angry.
One solution to this problem is to add an intercom system with a door phone to your residence. If you*re building a new home, you can easily add the wires to do this before the walls are closed. Unfortunately, it's much more expensive to do this for existing houses, condos, or town homes.
That's where a wireless intercom system works nicely as long as the system is totally wireless. That means you don*t have to run power or any other wires to the units at the front door or on your desk.
You also want a system that provides digital security so neighbors with similar units or cordless phones can*t listen to your conversations. Many digital systems also provide quieter operation so you won*t have any static noise drowning out your conversation.
The system you choose must have a waterproof outdoor wireless door intercom unit available so you can talk to whoever is at the door. If you have a larger house, or one with walls that could block the transmission signal, you'll want a long range system.
Some systems even let you add a remote door lock control, which is nice if you want a delivery person to just slide a package in the front door.
By installing a wireless intercom system you can quickly run off sales people with barely a break in your concentration. That improves your productivity*not to mention lowers the stress caused by being angry for having someone make you walk all the way to the front door for nothing.
