Intra-Office Communication made simple

BlueNote Lights connects Dental, Eyecare, Medical, and healthcare teams together for one-click intra-office communications. Communicate with sound, color-coded alerts, SMS alerts, and private messages.

Why should I try BlueNote Communicator Lights?

Because BlueNotes need to be experienced first, by the people who will actually be using them. The program isn’t simply technology that you can view on a monitor to understand how it really works. Strictly speaking, blue notes are the microtones between the regular notes on a musical scale. You can hear them when they’re played or when someone sings them, but there’s no way to write them down. Blue notes are soul - they are what make all the difference between classical and modern music. There is so much more to our BlueNotes than messaging. The system becomes the living heartbeat of an office, so that everyone knows where kindness is needed, every moment of the day.

It all starts with a Click.

Set your office in motion instantly. Whether you need to notify someone that a patient has arrived, a task should be managed, or a room is ready for a provider, one click of a Light is all it takes. With visual and audible indications that your staff can easily understand, BlueNote Lights is a powerful digital representation of your communications workflow.

Important communications never get lost or missed.

Conversations allow team members to target specific computers for private messaging, while the BlueNote Light Panel alerts and timers ensure that notifications and tasks are shared between all users.

Tasks can be seen and handled by anyone.

Need something to happen in the office quickly? Turn on a light. When the task is complete, the light is turned off. Each user can choose to opt out of notifications for any task or timer, which prevents unintended interruptions.


Every user can choose precise alerts for each Light. The user can select Tone only, Popup Only, or both. A text message or email can also be sent to a user's mobile device if needed.

It’s an intuitive system that needs no training.

Communication Systems should be reliable, repeatable, and effective. Because BlueNote Lights essentially is an overlay of your current workflow, it gives the team a familiar way to check in with one another to make sure everyone’s needs are being met.

BlueNotes (Quick Messages)

BlueNotes are defined comments inside a light that can modify an existing light with a color-coded message and can be accompanied by a unique tone if needed.

Designed to be different

Before computers and wifi networks were introduced throughout medical practices, it was necessary to install external doctor call boxes to walls and counters, such as The Communicator, Porter Navicoms, Comlite, Visicom, Theta Lites, DigitUp, Cornell Lights, Expeditor, KelKom and others. BlueNote Lights requires no additional hardware expense, since existing Windows PCs host the program. More importantly, BlueNotes are far more effective than plastic light panels for summoning the right person at the right time.

When you know what your office needs in order to communicate better, it’s easy to set up BlueNote Lights for everyone from your computer, so that each user will receive the office-wide settings automatically as the program is added to all the other computers.

It's not OK for your practice to use free cloud-based chat

The relaxation of enforcement policies that allowed healthcare businesses to function without fear of fines is coming to an end. Now that patients are allowed to visit providers again and we're no longer in an emergency situation, there's not an allowable excuse for a security breach or a privacy violation…

  • So easy to set up and use. Really easy to communicate specifically using this service. I can't believe it took me so long to get it.

    Premier Vision of Dallas
  • We love your software! It is so easy to customize, and even easier to use. The switch from our old software was painless and required essentially no training of our staff. Even better, we get to say goodbye to monthly fees!

  • It has been a life saver during covid-19

    Advanced General Dentistry
  • Great communication tool within the office! A little tricky to set up because you have to go to each individual computer to change settings so that only relevant notifications pop up for each computer. However once it's set up, it works flawlessly. We used to use headsets, but they got cumbersome ever since the pandemic and we had to ramp up the amount of PPE we are wearing. We love the pop-up notifications as it helps remind the Drs about hygiene exams (we tend to forget about them sometimes :P). We also use it with the front desk to notify the back of patient arrivals. We had a couple trial periods prior to finally purchasing it and any time it got discontinued due to being in between trials, there was an uproar in the office. Needless to say, all of the staff loved the software as well! Great product!!

    Moore Dental Care

    Dr. Jeannine E Wyke DMD
  • The BlueNote system has been amazing for our multi-chiropractor clinic. It has made us so much more efficient. Not sure how we functioned without it! I would highly recommend this to any and every doctor office. It is easy to use and to modify for your specific office and also very affordable.

    MY Life Health Center
  • Had Comlite system in the past and this was a seamless transfer to a new system.

    Kenneth Brossel DDS
  • This communication system is awesome.

    Park Center Dental Care
  • (5 Stars) Rating is based on testing product to purchase. It is user friendly and customizable. Seems to meet all the boxes of what we were looking for to meet our large office's needs of communication.

    Grove City Family Dentistry
  • Our staff love using BlueNote Lights. It has enhanced communication and increased our clinic's productivity exponentially. We would love a lot more animal sounds to be added though!

    Sterner Veterinary Clinic
  • This is the intra-office communication software I've been looking for! Love everything about it: the customization, ability to install on unlimited workstations with one license, and the always on status (no additional logins required). So much better than other internet or EHR based messaging systems we have tried. You have made my communication dreams come true. No more having to pick up a phone or leave the exam room to get what I need for a patient. The clinic is starting to hum with efficiency. Thank you so much!

    Nathan Heilman, OD - Northfield MN
  • SO happy and thankful! Our veterinary practice is more efficient and thorough, and communicating has improved above and beyond my expectations as a manager. Such an easy transition for the staff. The alert sounds are a fun addition too of course!

    Pine Tree Veterinary
  • We have been very pleased with our 30 day trial and are looking forward to using it. Everyone that I have dealt with has been very friendly and so helpful!!! I would highly recommend BlueNote.

    Ash General Dentistry
  • Great way to communicate across a large office. Wearing radios allows one conversation to be held at a time and it goes to all parties. Blue Note allows the customization for multiple conversations to be held at your fingertips and you can control who gets the messages. We love the alerts that stay up until doctor has taken care of exams and the quick messages that can be sent to a specific computer instead of everyone hearing the message. It helps cut out confusion on which person is sending the message. Great investment!

    Valerie Moore - My Dentist Joplin
  • This has been a life saver for our practice and our patients! THANK YOU!!!!!

    Tammy Boudry, DDS
  • We love it...we went away from it for a while, were using a different program, and the whole staff is excited to come back to BlueNote.

    Brad Redmond - Riverstone Dental Care
  • I like BlueNote lights a lot…. I prefer BlueNote lights over google's chat, Squiggle (intranet messenger) and another that we tried that I can't remember. We used to be with Practice Director and they had a great inter-office tracking feature, but other negative aspects of that software meant that we could not keep the sound up on the PCs running that software, so having the sounds with BlueNote is great.

    Jay Chretien, OD
  • The flexibility and ease of use is amazing. Super user friendly which has made for a great transition from our hard wired system ! Customer support also has been great!

    Becky Rottman, Endodontics PA Baltimore
  • We started using the Blue Note System when we moved into our new office about a month and a half ago. We absolutely love it. We are able to communicate with each other without having to get up and go from operatory to operatory. “When the patient gets here I can just send the Doctor a blue note instead of having to get up and interrupt his work to tell him his patient has arrived. The hygienist can request exams without having to go down the hall and find the dentist. It makes everything run much smoother and in a more timely manner. I would recommend the system for any type of professional office.

  • BlueNote saved our practice over $8000 by not installing a new Theta communications system in our new office. Love it!

  • BlueNotes are awesome! We’ve used this program now in our dental office for about two years and love it. It’s easy for everyone on our staff to use–installation and training was a breeze. We appreciate being able to customize it to our situation and would recommend it to anyone needing great communication throughout the office.

  • Just a quick note to tell you (y'all?) how much we LOVE BlueNote. Within a half-hour of downloading and installing it we were hooked. This simple little program has made such a huge difference in how smoothly our day runs. Hands-down, this is one of the best purchases we have ever made for office! Thanks again for a wonderful product.

  • I received the software with my morning package delivery and within an hour we were using it. It was simple to install and has worked flawlessly. We have 12 networked computers and a server and have been able to use BlueNote on all of them. “My staff loves that they don’t have to use the keyboard much, just a click or two of the mouse and the message is sent with a personal tone to alert others. My office is 3400 sq. ft. and the staff found it inefficient to walk around looking for who they needed. The cost was a fraction of a wired in communicator and much more flexible. And what is even better is if I ever move I can take it with me and start over without added expense. We have used the communicator for several months now and have not had to change a thing. It was designed to work perfectly in a dental office and I highly recommend you try it in yours.

  • We are new to Blue Notes, but we have loved using the system for the 30 day trial period. What an awesome way to be able to try it out without an initial financial investment!

  • We had previously used the typical 10-light button system dental offices have used for years and occasionally used the software included in our practice management software. However, with the installation of BlueNote, we’ve been more efficient in our “silent” communications, resulting in better service to our patients. “Your support has been exceptional and your responsiveness to our suggestions for software enhancements has been unparalleled. Please count me as an enthusiastic user of BlueNote Communicator!

  • Our whole office loves BlueNote Communicator. I want you to know how happy I am with my Communicator/Timer combo. It's already the coolest dental product on the market. Our patients think we're really "high tech" for just using it. Thanks for improving our workflow.

  • We have been looking for something exactly like this for two years. Now we don't want to spend a minute without the system. We have fine tuned all the messages to what we use and it works great, especially the hot keys for quick paging! We are now sharing the great find with any one who will listen (including our patients). Great system, what a time saver! We also have started using the Blue Timer for dental procedures and employees really like it compared to the old digital timers we had in each operatory. Thanks for your software - both have saved us time in many ways.

  • This program has greatly increased the efficiency of our office. We have been able to expedite our patient flow and become extremely efficient.

    Heber Springs Eye Care Center
  • We love BlueNote so far - we had tried a trial with another product and was very disappointed. Called local dentist in our area and they stated they use BlueNote and loved it. We were able to get it up and running in no time and have really liked the product on our trial basis.

  • I would like to thank the people of BlueNote Communicator for coming up with an outstanding product. We have a very busy dental office with eight operatories. Our office employs two dentists and three hygienists. For well over a year, our in-office communication system, [a wireless light panel] was a source of complaint at our weekly staff meetings. We continued to work at tweaking the way we used it, for we didn’t know of any alternative. “We heard about BlueNote and decided to download the free trial software. It was an instant hit at our office. We knew after one or two days we were not going to practice without this program again. It seems as though our communication system continues to be a topic of conversation at every staff meeting. Only now, it is a “thank you” for purchasing BlueNote Communicator. It has greatly decreased the amount of stress in our office. Now you can look at the screen and immediately know who needs you and where you are needed. It even lets you know how long your hygienist or patient has been waiting, so that you can prioritize which room to go to next. I just wanted to take the time to let you know of the impact you have made on our practice. Thank you BlueNote!
