I am a software developer (who would have thought?) so I can do a lot from home, but the debug must be done in a laboratory with expensive instrumentation and bulky frames, plus a the selection of different models.

The bare minimum instrumentation I use costs upwards of 50k, requires more power to operate than what a home in Italy gets from the line (3.6 kW max for each home contract, 6 kW if you have an EV, pay a premium and your line supports it) and at 3-phase 380V to boot, which isn't available at all in homes.

When we get to thermal chambers, EMC rooms, anechoic chambers and load tests there is no way I can stay away from the lab proper.

That said there have been long stretches of time (months) where I worked exclusively from my office desk and could have debugged with less than 2k€ of instrumentation that would easily fit in place of my flight simulator joystick at home so...
