Visionect: The perfect home office device to stop your kids from hopping on your conference call

April 02, 2020

The perfect home office device to stop your kids from hopping on your conference call. 

(Silicon Valley, CA, April 2nd, 2020) Visionect, the leading innovator of ePaper solutions, has announced the release of its newest innovation for your workspace at home – Joan Home.

Built on the legacy of the popular room booking management solution, Joan, which is being used by many leading companies across the globe such as Microsoft, NASA, Samsung and Amazon, Joan Home leverages the most energy-efficient technology to bring productivity and efficiency to your home.

Visionect’s innovation addresses the recent shift from working in the office to collaborating with remote teams from home, and the challenge of dealing with constant interruptions. The sudden change in work dynamic has forced millions of parents and individuals living in shared accommodation to restructure their workdays and tackle issues around their own productivity.

Employees who are interrupted during their deep work sessions and conference calls face a significant drop in the quality and speed of work, resulting in prolonged working hours. Those extra work hours are eating up time that could be spent with the family – the most important element of most people’s lives.

What’s more, young tech enthusiasts working in global tech centers live in shared accommodation with their housemates, making working from home especially challenging. Interruptions can cause lost deals, output is prone to human error, and their focus is pulled away from building successful businesses.

Staying close with our customers has enabled us to understand how people work and what they need to be their best selves. That’s why Visionect, at the recent turn of events, sprung to action and developed a solution for easing workflow and reducing meeting interruptions at home“, says Matej Zalar, co-founder of Visionect.

Joan Home is a home office device which displays your current availability and your calendar/schedule for the day. Its hardware was inspired by Joan and so it is energy-efficient, easy to attach and extremely secure. It also has a wireless design that resembles paper, making the device both simple and elegant.

Created on the principle of simplicity, Joan Home connects to your calendar and updates in real-time, allowing you to stay organized. Installation takes just a couple of minutes. Simply stick a magnet to any clean surface and place Joan onto it – that means no drilling, wiring, or damage to your walls. The device is completely wire-free and thanks to its energy efficiency, it only needs to be charged every few months.

Joan Home is the perfect household companion. It ensures that everyone’s work stays disruption-free and provides you with the opportunity to schedule meetings and conference calls without any distractions.

Visionect-powered electronic paper reports zero failures

Visionect-powered electronic paper reports zero failures



Sydney’s solar-powered e-paper traffic signs are improving daily transit and simplifying road sign deployment in Australia. Developed by Mercury Innovation and running on Visionect technology, the hardware reports an impressive zero failure rate since first installed in 2013.

To see road traffic information on the go, drivers in Sydney have been relying on unique electronic paper signs optimized for road traffic.

The e-paper traffic signs are the result of a close collaboration between Visionect and Mercury Innovation and represent a fusion of experience in deploying low power digital signage and expertise in traffic related products. Powered by Visionect and developed by Mercury, the traffic signs are especially designed to support the many challenges of outdoor deployment. Since first installed in 2013, the technology has had zero failures, proving that Sydney’s Intelligent Transportation System is both rugged and durable.

Visionect is known for working on numerous electronic paper development projects for many different industries. Equipped with the experience and know-how from past electronic paper development projects, Visionect has developed other similar quality products that are powered by the company’s state-of- the-art technology for rapid electronic paper development. Joining the Sydney traffic signs are, among other, e-paper museum labels, truckside displays, and the company’s flagship product Joan, a digital door label and meeting room scheduling solution with impeccable energy efficiency.

To improve daily transit and simplify road sign deployment, the Australian Road and Maritime Services had installed e-paper traffic signs on Sydney roads, representing the first time that electronic ink, a technology best known from e-book readers and smart watches, had been used in traffic signage. A unique Internet of Things ecosystem of digital displays was designed to overcome the usual visibility, powering and connectivity issues of traffic signalization.

“The road signs in Sydney are based on years of experience developing rugged but reliable products”, said Matej Zalar, CEO of Visionect. “The signs build on Visionect’s years of electronic paper signage expertise, and can, thanks to Mercury Innovation, withstand heat, humidity and direct sunlight and wind. We are proud of our zero failure rate.”

To reliably display road information, wireless signs had been built that communicate over the cellular network and don’t malfunction in the sun’s heat or during a power outage.

In addition to saving energy, the fully customizable e-traffic signs (which integrate displays from E Ink®) help cities save on temporary road sign placement as well. To further optimize and protect the electronic traffic signs, detection of location coordinates and tamper attempts has been developed, enabling road services to react quickly should any of the signs be damaged for whatever reason. For better nighttime visibility, the signs’ front panel light is triggered when it gets too dark for drivers to be able to read the signs.

“We wanted to create a product that was lightweight, but thin and solar powered. This means that no holes were dug to incorporate cables for power or data,” said Enrique Esquivel, the Co-founder of Mercury Innovation Traffic Solutions.

New South Wales Roads Minister Duncan Gay added that “to be able to bring a simplicity, to bring a clear message on that night or that day through this new technology is just terrific.”

“In providing drivers and passengers with customizable real time information in traffic or public transport, smart road signs create user-triggered content on the road signs, more than exceeding the goal of building a comprehensive road signalization system. We are very proud of our partnership with Mercury Innovation, E Ink and the local authorities, which resulted in a successful project,” said Zalar.
