Connected Life StoreHow digitally savvy would you say your business is? We understand how busy things can get when you’re running a small business. So, every little bit of extra help you can get will always go a long way.

Now we’re not suggesting you head out and get every smart device you can think of. That’s just like buying a bunch of study guides that you’ll never use. There are quite a few considerations to think about when trying to boost the firing rate of your office’s synopsis. Will the layout of your office influence the effectiveness of smart office devices? What are your expectations for creating a connected office? How compatible should your IoT (Internet Of Things) be with each other? What connected features are most important to you and your business?

To be perfectly honest, the list of questions like these could go on and on. But before you feel like you’re getting in over your head, allow us to throw you a digital life preserver! We went ahead and built a small list of smart office devices we feel every small business can benefit from. And the best part, not only are they all app-based, but they’re all either offered at Cincinnati Bell or are compatible with our network.

Explore these app-based smart office devices:

  • Ring Floodlight - There is so much comfort to be had knowing at any time you can see, hear and speak to people on your property from the comfort of your phone. Shine the lights on all your blind spots, sound the siren on suspicious activity and keep any unwanted people away from your business.
  • Roomba- Make close of business easier with an iRobot Roomba. Control and schedule from your phone, even when you’re away. The Roomba creates a detailed map of your layout so it knows where it is, where it has been, and where it needs to clean. With one less thing to do, it keeps you walking into your business with a fresh start.
  • TPLink Wi-Fi Power strip – Need a smarter way to control multiple devices from anywhere with voice controls? Just plug in connecting your lights and devices, allowing you to turn on/off based on your command or program-specific times you set to help with your business’ energy savings.
  • TP Link Bulbs– Did someone accidentally leave the lights on? No worries! Internal and external smart lighting systems allow owners and managers to control lights (guess from where) – YES, right from your phone. PS, you can also monitor motion-activated lights for security purposes.
  • Sonos Speakers – Hate the idea of elevator music? Well, now you can create your very own ambient noise and music selection to create the perfect customer experience.
  • NEW!  Bosma Security Camera-  There’s plenty to love about IoT security cameras. This new Bosma camera gives you amazing 145° Wide-Angle Views & 360 Degree Panning. Having one of the widest view angle among security camera, the Bosma makes sure there is no blind spots in your business.

We would love to hear from you and how your business could benefit from any of these devices.  Enter-to-Win a new Bosma Security Camera below just by telling us which featured item from the above list your business would use and benefit from the most.  One not shown?
