Luxafor On Air

Windows 10/11 app to set Luxafor RGB lights according to whether your microphone is in use by other applications. Allows you to use your Luxafor lights as an 'on air' indicator to show when you are taking part in a web meeting and should not be disturbed, regardless of the meeting software you are using.

Luxafor lights can be used in a variety of ways to show your status to others at your work or home office without being interrupted, such as changing color according to your free/busy status in Microsoft Teams. But what about those times you get pulled into a customer meeting on Zoom at the last minute without time being reserved on your calendar?

In these cases, one of the most reliable indicators of whether you are free or not is whether your computer microphone is currently in use, which Windows 10 and 11 keeps track of and displays to the user by adding a small microphone icon in the taskbar notification area near the clock.

Luxafor On Air simply watches for this indicator and sets your connected Luxafor light accordingly.
