How to start an instant timer

In this example, we’ll explain how you can set up an instant timer such as sleep or reminders in Apple’s Shortcuts app to put your Philips Hue lights to dim down or let them remind you of something. This feature is available with a Pro Membership.

Tap on “Instant Timer (Pro)”.

Tap on “Timer type” to select the right timer – either Sleep Timer, Reminder (short) or Reminder (long)

Tap on group to select the group of choice

Tap on “Duration (minutes)” and adjust it to your preferences.

If you want to rename your shortcut, for example to sleep timer, tap on “Instant Timer (Pro)” and then on “Rename”.

That’s it. You have successfully created your own shortcut to set a timer.
