So in this new era of working from home all the time my family asked a very important question. “How do we know when you are on a call and cannot be disturbed?” Up until COVID-19, I would work from home several days a week, but the difference is I would have the house mostly to myself since my wife would be working and my kids would be at school. This question reminded me of a post by Scott Hanselman from several years ago. Busylight to the rescue.

There are plugins for various communication software packages like Skype, Teams, Zoom, and others. There is also the kuandoHUB, for setting the light (and sounds) manually.

To check out the rest of my work from home setup, head on over to my github page. If you have any questions, hit me up on twitter.
