If your job requires you to be on the phone a lot you probably understand the aggravation of being interrupted by coworkers. Headsets tend to make it worse because when you’re wearing one, it’s hard for others to know if you’re in a conversation or not.

The Busy Beacon indicator light is designed to communicate to coworkers in a clear, concise way that you’re temporarily unavailable.  A nice thing about it is that you don’t have to worry about inadvertently offending anyone.

When you answer a call, the red busy light automatically comes on, letting others know you’re with a client.  As soon as you hang up, the light goes off (this can be delayed if desired), signalling that your conversation is finished.  There are no misunderstandings or hurt feelings.  There is also a “Do Not Disturb” mode with a cool blue LED that lights up when you’re not on the phone but still want to be left alone for whatever reason.

The Busy Beacon takes just seconds to install and is guaranteed by the manufacturer to work with any phone or headset with a standard RJ9 phone jack (98% of phones and headsets use this).  It can also handle Skype calls.  With a sleek and modern looking design it actually looks pretty cool when in use.

If you’re tired of being forced to decipher two conversations at once while on the phone, or just want a few moments to yourself where you know you won’t be disturbed, getting a Busy Beacon indicator light for your cubicle will be well worth it in the long run.
