The Busy People

Be a Pro at Home

Work Uninterrupted
Keep the interruptions to a minimum by letting your home team know you're BUSY.
Create a Professional Space
Nothing says “I’m not professional at home” like an awkwardly timed entry into your space during an important call.

Create Deep Focus Time

Dive Into Work
Sometimes you need to really focus to get that next big thing done. BusyBox lets those around you know that now is not a good time to interrupt.
Send the Right Signals
Sometimes you’re grinding to meet a deadline, sometimes you’re just cleaning up your inbox. Use the light color options to signal (red) “now is NOT a good time” or (green) “now’s a fine time to visit.”

Not Now Please

Flow Time
Streaming is about being in the moment, and interruptions can ruin your flow. Let the house know what you’re doing before they knock on the door, or walk right in.
Looking Legit
Your streaming space looks like a professional studio. Don’t have someone walk in and ruin the facade.

ON AIR

It’s Showtime
When you’re podcasting, or broadcasting, interruptions can be a big problem. Let the folks outside of your headphones know that now is not a good time to barge in or practice guitar in the room next door.
Multi-room Control
You’ve got 4 rooms recording going at once, and the last thing you want is someone to walk into one of them and disrupt the take.  Grouped BusyBoxes give you control to let the outside world know when it’s go time.

Focus. Study. Succeed.

Give Your Students Time
It’s hard enough to get kids to do their homework, but when everyone in the house is interrupting, it makes things even harder. Actually, now is not a good time to walk in and ask “How was your day at school?” Give your students time to study, to read, to focus, by putting a BusyBox on the door.

I’m on a Call

Call Time
Use the countdown timer to keep the kids out until you’re done with your call… they are much better at waiting when they know you’ll be off your call soon.
Office Decor
Match your office decor with a new color or style of cover.

Inspired by Necessity

Interruption Free Zone
To make sure every take was the best it could be, the old recording studios had signs illuminating the knowledge that something important was happening inside, and to not go in the room. Now you can do the same.
Grouping
Grouping BusyBoxes together allows for multiple devices to go on/off at the same time, from one central control… either the app or a BusyBox Button.

Home studio

Deep Focus
Video editing doesn’t take focus, it takes deep focus. You need time to find content, rearrange content, and to stitch it together into a 30 second story that flows and makes the message clear. Even the smallest interruption can set you back. Let those outside the cutting room know, if it can wait, that would be great.
Remote Worker
Be a Pro at Home

Work Uninterrupted

Keep the interruptions to a minimum by letting your home team know you're BUSY. 

Create a Professional Space

Nothing says “I’m not professional at home” like an awkwardly timed entry into your space during an important call.

Freelancer

Gamers
Level Up

Game On

When my headphones are on I can’t hear you yelling at me from across the house.  So, when you see the “Game On” sign illuminated, I’m in the zone and not ignoring anyone.

Raids Take Time

Not all achievements are quick. Sometimes a gamer needs to carve out time to level up.

Students
Focus. Study. Succeed

Give Your Students Time

It’s hard enough to get kids to do their homework, but when everyone in the house is interrupting, it makes things even harder. Actually, now is not a good time to walk in and ask “How was your day at school?” Give your students time to study, to read, to focus, by putting a BusyBox on the door.

Grouping

Grouping BusyBoxes together allows for multiple devices to go on/off at the same time, from one central control … either the app or a BusyBox Button.

Control Your BusyBox

Manage your BusyBox with the mobile app. Both iOS and Android platforms are supported.
Control Freak
BusyBox Control app allows you to set on/off, pick light colors, set modes, group signs together. Control like this never felt so easy.
Groupie
BusyBox signs can work alone, or together as part of a one team of devices. You decide. Simplify your status control with groups.
1,000 Words
Sometimes an image is worth a thousand words. Use the App and the BusyBox D to make your message clear, fun and visual.
Hands Free
Go “hands free” at home with integrations. You can let your favorite apps control the BusyBox.  Link to your Google Calendar or say “Hey Siri, turn on my BusyBox.”

Take Control By Letting Go

With the BusyBox integrations you can make your apps work for you.  Google Calendar will update the BusyBox automatically with your status, or ask Siri to turn the sign off now that your call is done.
Stay up to date as we announce new integrations

FAQs

What’s the difference between the BusyBox S and the BusyBox D?
Primarily three things. Flexibility of message, battery life and cost.  The S is lower cost, longer battery life but not as flexible with your messages.  The D is super flexible with messages, but has less battery life and costs more.
Do both products, BusyBox S and BusyBox D work together?
Yes.  BusyBox signs are made to team up, or go solo.  The app allows for grouping (and ungrouping) of signs, as well as individual sign controls.
How do I make a sign to display on the BusyBox D?  What are the options?
Using the BusyBox Control app you can create your own message.  Check the BusyBox D’s details page, and the Control app page, for cool examples of what you can make right in our app.
How hard is it to change the message on the BusyBox S?
Pull the cover off.  Slide the old message out.  Slide the new message in.  Put the cover back on.  The world record is currently held by me at 2.9 seconds.  Try and beat me.
How long does the battery last between charges?
That of course depends on quite a few things, how bright do you run it, do you use blink mode, are you using red or blue?  But, let’s go with “approximately” answers so you can get a feel for it.  The BusyBox S can run more than 120 hours non-stop on a single charge in a low-light setting, and 40+ hours in a normal bright room setting.  The BusyBox D is designed to run 10+ hours under normal conditions. Why the difference?  The BusyBox S uses 20 high powered LEDs, the BusyBox D uses 614,400 low powered LEDs.  So, the math is too tricky to nail down how it’ll work for you. Luckily, it’s easy to recharge, and recharges quickly via using USB-C.
