Samsung sleep mode and next alarm

When accessing the next alarm sensor on a Samsung device that has enabled the sleep mode schema, the companion app picks the sleep mode start time rather than the actual clock alarm.

Anyone also having this problem?

Anyone who uses a Samsung app with the next alarm sensor will have the issue. Samsung apps are known to misbehave here .

It was not a problem until one of the family members discovered the sleep mode “feature” recently.
Poor design not to use a separate counter for the sleep mode and re-use the alarm counter :frowning:

This time I could mitigate with a time condition in the automation and thereby ignore the sleep mode next_alarm start time.

yea samsung and xiaomi apps are particularly bad about this, some of their apps even set alarms for the calendar.
