At lot of us are still working from home. If that’s you, and you have zoom meetings all day, this might be a handy project that will let the people you live with know when you’re having a meeting! Here’s more from Rebecca Deprey via hackster.io:
With so many of us working from home, there’s a new need to let others in our homes know when we’re in meetings during the workday. To help with this around my home, I decided to make a simple “meeting indicator” device that shows when I’m busy/free during the workday by:
Checking my Outlook calendar every 15 minutes to see if a meeting is happening
Turning the LCD red if I’m in a meeting or green if I’m not
