Video Demo of Busylight UC for Microsoft Lync

Published 02/04/2012 - 2 Comments



Busylight UC is a USB call alert/Presence display device for Lync. It has a bight LED to indicate your presence state/an incoming call and an built in Speaker to play ringtones directly from the device.

The idea:

  • Never miss a Lync call
  • Mute your ringtone and have a flashing visual alert for incoming calls
  • Have an audible ring alert on a PC with no speakers
  • Avoid interruptions as your colleges can see your presence state from a distance

Busylight kindly sent me a sample to play with. I’ve done a quick video of the device in action. The video doesn’t really doe the light justice, it’s a really nice bright LED.

It could be a great device for someone who misses Lync calls or spends all day with the headset on and doesn’t like being interrupted when in a call.

Interested to hear your thoughts. More info on the product and ordering details at

Here are some screenshots of the tray configuration options:
