BRING IT HOME: GETTING A HOME OFFICE SAFE
Many of us have had to adapt to the pandemic by taking more time to work at home. Working at home involves having some sort of space to set up, ideally a home office. For those of us who use these home office spaces, our desks and cabinets can be quite cluttered. Apart from being disorganized, this clutter can also potentially be a major risk to your work.
If you've moved important documents or files home, you want to make sure that they don't get lost - or even stolen. It's for this reason that more workers are installing a small home safe in their office. This piece will explain the benefits of a home office safe, and our tips on home safe installation.
BENEFITS OF A HOME OFFICE SAFE
Many of us have become so used to having our own office space, that we've forgotten how to manage organization at home. Many of us may be moving to remote work in the future, so having a clean and organized home office will be key.
One of the best ways to get organized is with a small home safe. When it comes to getting a home office safe for organization, there is a certain appeal in knowing 100% that important items or documents haven't been moved. If you live with pets or children, you might end up with documents being moved accidentally - unless they are in your home office safe.
There's also the question of security. Depending on your business, you may have a legal obligation to keep certain sensitive items (such as printouts of client data) secure. These sensitive items could be physical documents, or they could be stored on USB keys. By getting a home office safe, you can be assured that anything sensitive from work will be safe and secure.
Of course, you can all use a home office safe to secure your own office valuables in case of a home intrusion. Laptops and personal documents are popular items to keep in a small home safe when not in use.
INSTALLING YOUR HOME OFFICE SAFE
Thankfully, home safe installation can be done pretty easily. If you're getting a Mycube, we offer plenty of great installation and set-up guides. In many ways, the hardest part about getting a home office safe is deciding where to put it! You can simply place it on your desk, but without bolting it down, you're liable to have the safe be taken entirely, or fall off the desk.
Finding a shelf in your office to secure a small home safe can be a somewhat better arrangement. This lets the safe be easily accessible, but also difficult to take. There are also safe models that fit snugly into drawers, letting you discretely keep the safe out of sight, while still being near at hand.
