Work From Home Solutions

 

Navigating the new work environment, we are all experiencing is challenging enough; connecting your equipment shouldn’t be. But we have all experienced frustration as the ports on our laptop don’t mate with our monitor, or are cable isn’t long enough to reach, or are new “co-workers” ala our pets and children interrupt our conference call. We can’t help you with everything, but navigating connectivity issues is our specialty.

Our sales and support team are here to help you find the tools you’ll need to expand your workspace, connect your laptop, adapt old equipment to new equipment, remotely connect to your office network while powering everything from your peripherals to your PC. No experience is required on your end. Just send us some pictures, and we can quickly identify what you need.

Here are a few of the most popular work from home solutions.

 

Mult-Port Adapters

Multi-Port adapters take a single port and adapt it to more than one port. This is very common with new laptops using USB-C. Because of its small form factor, USB-C is very popular. While it’s streamlined approach allows your laptop to be thinner, it also creates the need for dongles and adapters. For example, our 3-in-1 USB C adapter adapts a single USB-C into a multi-port connection providing USB, HDMI, and RJ45 (ethernet).

Adapters

Standard adapters take a single port and adapt it to another type of port, gender or form factor. In a work from home environment, the most commonly used adapters are audio/video. For example, if your laptop uses HDMI, but your monitors have DVI, an HDMI to DVI adapter bridges the gap allowing you to connect your equipment.

Cables & Adapter Cables

Cables are the most reliable way to connect equipment. They provide less interference and loss in the signal chain while providing greater working distances than wireless solutions. Adapter cables perform a similar function as a cable with an adapter but offer it in an all-in-one solution.

With thousands of unique cable combinations, there are numerous solutions we could spotlight, but one unique cable that can help you get connected are our premium DisplayPort cables. After being frustrated with computer to monitor synch issues, we looked for a reliable cable that works every time. So far, we have not had one compatibility issue with our premium cables.

Power

Everyone appreciates the importance of power. I want to focus on preventing dangerous power from damaging your equipment. Power spikes and surges can quickly ruin your entire work from home setup and most people don’t think about it until it’s too late. While we offer lots of technical surge products, this is a useful product for your desk. It offers six surge-protected outlets, two USB ports, and clamps that attach it to your desk.
