Ecobee Automation bug or expected behavior?

I was just setting up an automation with my Ecobee to change the mode to Home from Sleep if I get up earlier than the time when it changes on it’s own.

If I set the Condition to this:

I then get this error:

Now if I change the Condition to this, it doesn’t give me an error:

Not sure if that is expected or if I was doing something wrong. Anyone have any experience with this? I’ll test it out tomorrow morning to see if it actually works or not.
