Working from home isn't particularly easy. With your office, you show up to a workstation that's already been configured by the IT department. When you need to attend a meeting, you actually attend a meeting, and when all's said and done, you log off, shut your machine, and leave the office. With working from home, you have to navigate the entire experience from scratch, getting a machine to work with all your new collaboration software, having peripherals that are well connected, needing a reliable home WiFi connection, and simultaneously learning the user interfaces for multiple video chatting apps.
Designed to act as the makeshift IT guy who sets up your workspace you can easily get to work without fiddling with wires, peripherals, and ports, the Logi Dock comes with all the ports you need at the back, effectively shifting the mess of cables off your desk and to its rear. It supports up to five USB peripherals and up to two monitors — while charging your laptop up to 100W and even giving you the ability to juice your phone/tablet. Once you've set your workspace up, the Logi Dock's buttons make it a breeze to enter and exit meetings, toggle your webcam (without interacting with the video-conferencing app's interface), and if you've got a headset, you can either use the buttons on the Logi Dock to switch the mic on or off or use the Dock's advanced speakerphone system to attend meetings without using headphones. The speakerphone doubles up as a music system while working too, allowing you to play your favorite tunes while you work, reducing the need to have an extra set of desktop speakers on your table… or having to rely on your laptop's crummy speaker system.
The Logi Dock is available in two colors: Graphite and White, and begins shipping in Winder 2021 for $399.
