Bought these for use within a call center. After installing the drivers/software it’s really just plug in and go. It works great and really helps give me at a glance the status of each person. Glad we went with this first.
Works great for the office especially with people who use a headset so you know they are on the phone. Only thing is the software occasionally freezes and you have to quit and restart it to get the light working again.

There's far too many plug-ins to install. Just give us one nice app to install and a config screen! I took another star off because the magnets on the base come out of the base constantly.

Got this one because I had another brand but the light was so dim in comparison. I also like that this is magnetic. I use this for Teams and integration was very quick once I figured out what software to download. My only complaint is that it’s not fully customizable like the other brand, so I can’t fully customize each status with different colors/flashing/sounds. Only the standard color for each status.
I use this for my home office so my family knows if they can disturb me. First the good stuff: The size and form factor is excellent. Not too big not too small. Easy to mount. Long cord (spec says 9'). The hardware is generally excellent. Easily 5 stars. What needs to improve: The cord is not replaceable if it breaks, or if you don't need 9'. I'd prefer a removable USB cord so it could be replaced. The biggest need is software. The software is easy to set up, but configuration choices are minimal. Because it is used at home, I need it to turn off especially when the computer sleeps. It stays on so I have to unplug it. The easiest way to fix this would be for me to be able to configure the color for every state. If I could set Away as off, it would turn off when it sleeps. I'd also like off for when I am available. Software changes should be pretty easy and would make this a solid 5 star purchase. Use: It changes color with manual state changes faster than the Teams app! When driven by the Teams app it works flawlessly. I was real concerned about working with teams, but it seems to be perfect. Overall, I give it 4 stars due to the lack of configurability of the software. Fix that, and it is a very solid 5.

I dislike nothing. Easy to mount and works well. Let's my office mates know when I am on a Teams call.
This product solved my issues with interruptions by my family while I work at home. Works seamlessly with Teams and Zoom, great options to allow detailed control of when/how it reacts. Hotkey to toggle it on and off for times when you need to trigger it outside of a Teams/Zoom meeting. Customer support was phenomenal - they contacted me within seconds of submitting a service ticket (I was stunned at how fast it was). The technician (Ember) was not just there to resolve my issues (that were self-induced as I failed to set it up correctly) but also hung on the line to make sure I knew of other cool features it had. Highly recommend this product.

Walked in thinking this would be a night mare to set up but was happy to find it wasn't. Plugged in downloaded software for my soft phone app and boom like nothing it was up and running
