With some businesses deciding to keep a work at home environment for a while you have to come up with some creative ideas to actually get some work done. I am sure a lot of you have a similar story; your kids are at home trying to do their schoolwork online for the first time, you are at home trying to get your work done. Your kids get tired of it and start trying to get your attention, but you are on a video meeting. It can get pretty loud pretty fast.

Everyone is trying to figure out how to tell their family that they are busy and, on a call, or in a virtual meeting and to please come back without sounding rude. Well there are a few things you can do especially if you have a home office set up in a room.


Crestron makes room status indicators that mount to the ceiling or door. A lot of corporate offices use them to let other people know that there is a meeting going on (red indicator) or if the room is free (green indicator). You may not want to go this route as it would make your house look like an office.


Another option you could do would be putting LED lights above the door that would change colors. Red for you are in a meeting and cannot be disturbed. Green for when you are in between meetings and you can help out if someone needed you. Then when you were done for the day you can turn off the light and it would look like the outside of the room.

A lot of people use LED lighting for different parts of their houses. Cove lighting, lighting around your television, under your steps. The best part about using either of these options is that you can integrate it into your Crestron system. If you decide to use LED lights on your Crestron system to do something similar, you could have control over when the lights would be on. 


If you would like us to take a look at doing this for you, give us a call and we will set you up with an appointment to go over your options. We will make sure that you have all of the information you need to make the right decision for you and your home.
