Just put the printer somewhere it doesn't disturb anyone, like the shed, the basement or a spare bathroom.
But actually watching it print is so mesmerizing and calming, and I also want to make sure nothing goes wrong!
So I can just put it somewhere within my Wifi's range and be able to access it without spending too much money on this convenience.
So I can always be sure that it's doing what it's supposed to be doing.
So I can still watch the printer do its magic.
So that I can quickly check up on it from any of my devices without the need to install anything.
All this in a reactive web interface using modern web technologies that ensure an experience just like on the desktop.
