Workaround to set multiple timers using voice assistants

Applies to all devices managed through voice assistants (Apple Home Kit to generation II only)

 

Though it’s still not possible to set more than one-timer at the same time via the Twinkly app, you can eventually reach the same results, setting multiple ones with voice assistants like Google Home, or Alexa, that's part of the magic of Twinkly compatibility!

 

Here's how.

  • How to set a timer via Alexa:

Open Alexa and go to More => Routines
Create a new Routine
In the section “When this happen” select the times and days you prefer
Then select “Add Action” => Lights => Twinkly => Power On
