It has been years since the COVID-19 pandemic plunged us into the habit of remote-working – but now, it is beyond doubt that hybrid working is here to stay.
While many of us are embracing the flexibility and advantages of this work-mode, collaborative working and home-schooling can be a challenge without ways to connect seamlessly with our peers. Smart whiteboards are the ultimate tool for engaging, uniting and inspiring people.
However, with so many different models, options and accessories to choose from, identifying the best smart whiteboard for home use is a challenging task in itself.
At Speechi, our goal is to offer as much guidance and support as possible to every customer – so you can rest assured that you will get the best smart whiteboard setup for your home. Read on to learn about the factors that will impact the cost of your smart whiteboard for home.
The size of your space at home
Firstly, it is important to measure the dimensions of the room in which you intend to set up your smart whiteboard. If you are setting up your smart whiteboard screen for remote working, what does your home office look like?
For example, is it a cosy nook, a spare bedroom, or a larger study? If your space is smaller and you will be in close range of the screen, then a 55” or 65” model would be the best choice.
Otherwise, do you intend to replace your TV screen with your smart whiteboard, or home-school your children in a larger space? If this sounds more like your use-case, you will need one of our larger screen models.
Your smart whiteboard’s screen size and resolution
These will be the primary factors that influence the cost of your office’s smart whiteboard. Speechi interactive whiteboards are available in 5 different sizes: 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch, 86-inch and 98-inch dimensions.
As a general rule of thumb, the larger the smart whiteboard is, the higher its price will be – but since some models have Gen 1 and Gen 2 versions, the cost may vary. Smart whiteboards for home will generally be used by a limited number of people at a time (often just one person), you will likely be able to narrow down your choice to smaller models, like our 55” and 65” options.
Android or Windows operating system
While most smart whiteboards from Speechi are powered by an Android UI, we have recently added Windows interactive screens to our range.
However, it is important to note that picking Windows over Android comes at a higher cost. Android interfaces are built with speed and lightness in mind, which is perfect for small- to medium-scale video calls. However, if you will be connecting to a dozen or more team members across the globe, the reliability and robustness of a Windows UI will be worth the price.
Our electronic whiteboards boast an outstanding range of built-in hardware and software options, but depending on your use-case, you may want to add to these with Speechi’s state-of-the-art hardware accessories.
Do you intend to use your smart whiteboard to host massive video calls with colleagues or extended family worldwide?
If so, a wide-angle 4K UHD camera may be of interest. On the other hand, if you intend to play a lot of music and videos on your smart whiteboard, it may be worth looking at our speaker systems and loudspeakers.
