The 3 Best Webcams for WFH Employees

Even before the pandemic caught the world off guard, there was a growing trend among many of today’s corporations, large and small, to hire a flex workforce. Not only did this help to reduce overheads, but it also enabled employers to recruit the top talent from literally every corner of the earth. It also gave workers the ability to take positions they would never before have been able to accept without relocating to a new city.

If you are an employer with work-from-home (WFH) staff, you will want to provide them with the means of staying in constant communication with the home office. Videoconferencing platforms are a priority and you will also want to be assured they have a good quality HD webcam.

1. Brio Ultra HD Pro Business Webcam

If your home worker will be collaborating with other creatives, this would be the webcam of choice. With its 4k HD resolution, meetings will be crystal clear, making it easier to share even the tiniest detail with crystal clarity. Typically priced at just over 200 GBP, this is an extremely cost effective piece of technology for all the features available. When meeting with clients, this particular webcam functions well in literally any light condition for extremely low light to high contrast lighting, and even handles direct sunlight well. This light-handling feature is what also makes it ideal for collaboration among creatives. What sets this webcam apart from so many 4k webcams on the market is in how it is able to stream videos at any resolution, making it adaptable even to servers with limited bandwidth capacity.

2. Razer Kiyo

While a good, low cost webcam, this is not one you’d want to use for collaboration among creatives or for videoconferencing with important clients. The Razer Kiyo offers resolutions at 1080p or 720p. It is advertised as offering full HD resolution, but you will not get the quality or clarity of top shelf webcams like the abovementioned Brio Ultra HD. The main attraction of this webcam is the low cost, making it cost effective for companies with a large WTF workforce. This is a good option for those workers who simply need to communicate with the home office from time to time but aren’t likely to spend much time impressing clients.

3. Logitech C925e Business Webcam

Here is another Logitech webcam that is suitable for most business applications. It is mid-range in cost and offers many of the same features as the abovementioned Brio by Logitech, but without all the bells and whistles. This particular model is designed for all-day collaboration and is ideally suited for home workers who need to connect regularly throughout the day with other team members and/or departments.

While many of today’s all-in-one PCs have built-in cameras, they tend to lack the quality of external cams such as those mentioned above. Whether your employees are working from a desktop PC, a laptop or even a tablet, you should consider the benefits of providing webcams designed primarily for business use. According to Bloomberg, at least half of London firms are forecast to employ a large number of WFH employees which means that webcams are a key piece of technology necessary for connectivity within a WFH workforce.
