SkypeSignal

Skype signal is a simple .NET console app and Arduino sketch to build your very own Lync/Skype status light pretty easily

My solution comprises of two main parts:

  • An Arduino nano connected to a couple of RGB LED lights
  • A .NET application which uses the Lync client SDK to send commands to the Arduino via serial (over USB)

The operating workflow:

  • Device connected to USB
  • Relevant COM port set in SkypeSignal Config and started on PC
    • A thread is started to run a small tray application on the windows task bar
    • A thread is started to subscribe to Skype/Lync client events using the client SDK
  • On client status change a command is sent down to the Arduino where it switches the light to the colour/pattern representing the presence of the user.
