Busylight is an open-source ‘busylight’ built on top of ESP8266 hardware and Platform.io. The aim was to make a cheap and easy-to-build busylight that I could use at home to notify my wife when I was on a call or concentrating.
It is designed to have three main interfaces:
- A simple HTTP frontend and API
- Telegram Bot frontend
The ESP8266 built-in WiFi allows the device to be placed anywhere with a USB power supply, making it convenient to stick on a door frame or somewhere easily visible.
