Once back at home or in the office you can simply configure Volumify to turn the volume back to normal. Volumify developers Rolling On The Bed explain:
“Volumify is a very handy utility to automatically adjust your Mac’s volume according to your current location and to disable the startup sound. All you need to do is configure your locations in the app’s preferences. Volumify automatically detects your locations by available WiFi networks and adjusts your Mac’s volume accordingly.”
