How would I go about setting a repeating reminder that just lights up the Edge on my S7 Edge?

I have a need for a reminder that just lights up the edge in the same way as it does when the phone is face down and you receive a call (Edge Lighting in Settings).

I have to do something every hour but I don't want the phone to vibrate or make a sound whilst I am in the office do as not to distract my colleagues.

Ideal situation:

  • I set a reminder for 9am to repeat every hour
  • At 9am, 10am, 11am, etc. the edge lighting comes on with no sound or vibration
  • As per this blog , edge lights up only when selected people call . Is there any other condition under which it lights up? Please mention all events that trigger that to think of a solution – beeshyams Mar 30 '17 at 18:14
  • I'm not aware of any other condition. I can't believe it hasn't been done already though, seems like a really obvious feature to add given the capabilities of the device. I don't want to have to write an app, I only need to use it for a few weeks. – Sean Airey Mar 30 '17 at 18:43
  • I suspect the answer to this question is "no, not without a 3rd-party tool". Might have to resort to some third-rate Q&A site like Quora if that's the case.... shudders – Sean Airey Mar 30 '17 at 18:47
  • Hmm..I was thinking of automation since you are talking of hourly schedule but that would mean that the automation app runs on another device and gives you a call every hour. Not convenient, but that's the only idea I have – beeshyams Mar 30 '17 at 18:47

    Yeah I won't see the light but I can see the Edge... "This awkward bugger.." I hear you say. Well, you're not wrong :D thanks for all your suggestions though :) – Sean Airey Mar 30 '17 at 19:22
