      Hello, please note that this is based on your system's 12/24 settings in phone settings - time and date..but we had reports that there are bugs in custom ROMs for example.. anyway we simply ask the system what mode to use..no charges there and no this is the only report we have about this if this would be a non device specific issue we would be overwhelmed by emails now..

      Hello, this is probably CM bug :( hopefully gets addressed soon..

        Hello Luke, I doubt Gadget Bridge would allow to get direct access to the accelerometer sesor which Zdenek Horak’s Tools & Mi Band can do..this is what we need to implement our own sleep tracking algorithms and smart wake up on the mi band..

        AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

        +Charis.. sorry I missed the response was not from you..

        Just to clarify, we do not support Tools & Mi Band, but Tools & Mi Band implemented support for our wearable API into Tools and any other Mi Band app can do the same thing.

        So if my understanding it correct (I would need to check GadgetBridge implementation more to be sure here), but either we would need to integrate parts of Gadget Bridge into Sleep as Android which we cannot at the moment as GadgetBridge is under GPL and also it would not make any sense from a maintenance point of view as with any updates to GB we would need to integrate those etc..

        So the obvious way to go would be support for our API which is really straight forward within GadgetBridge. That been said I think this feature request is on a wrong feature request forum.

        Hello Chris, I'm not really involved in this matter and do not want to get involved.

        According to what I know from Zdenek the screenshot story is completely made up, the real issue was a GadgetBridge team member posted part of Zdenek's decompiled code online and they did in fact encourage the community to decompile his app.

        The real problem I see here is Xiaomi and their approach to make the protocol as closed as possible so that it is extremely hard to do any integrations. They did even break all integration efforts several times.

        In this situation I would ideally suggest people to boycott such product (the Mi Band). But the reality is that after Pebble's fall there really isn't any proper wearable product on the market, so even I feel very bad about this I even started to recommend people the Mi Band because if Xiaomi breaks all integrations once again, at least they did not spend too much on the band and the battery really lasts..

        Anyway as I said anyone can integrate any device with Sleep as Android using our APIs..

        AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

        Hello Chris, many thanks for your opinion.

        In fact I know Zdenek Horak and I know about that case. I was also asking him what happened?

        He has assured me that he did that as a last resort action after GadgetBridge kept steeling his code from Tools & MiBand and made it public to be used by his competition.

        In fact I can understand that BT sniffing requires an incredible amount of time and knowledge and he did put an immense effort into the app and of course I guess everyone wants to get payed for the job he is doing.

        So IMHO this is not a free software vs. paid software dispute but something completely different.

        Anyway we have an open API. So like Zdenek Horak utilized our API and implemented integration with Tools & Mi Band the Gadget Bridge team or even anyone else can do that same for Gadget Bridge..

        The doc is here:

          +Leesa, I really doubt the app could prevent long press on the power button, no app can do that..I did test this and I can turn off the phone during alarm with Alarmy..

              +Kevin, in fact the app tries to reconnect to the oximeter whenever the connectivity drops every 15+ minutes I think..

                Hello, can you please use menu – report a bug? normally we use the smallest increments we can in audio volume. Did you try to send a longer Gentle volume increase period (Settings – alarm defaults)?

                AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

                Hello Maxance, normally we do not use the system-wide increments - we use our own media player for the alarm there we can set volume freely - so in case of 24 minutes of gentle volume increase you probably would not even recognize the increments with your ear...

                But in some special cases we need to rather control the system-wide volume - for example when you use a Spotify alarm and we do not have direct control over the media player. And in this case we need to rely on the increments you phone provides..

                I do not know why your setup uses the system wide volume but there is a reason for that which I would find out from a menu - report a bug..

                  Many thanks for your message. Please note that we use gentle vibrations. It starts with a single vibe, another in 30s, than again in 20s and so on. After few minutes the vibrations will be continuous. You can control when vibrations on the watch start using settings>smartwatch>vibration and you always have a backup alarm on your phone in case something would happen to your watch.

                  Can you explain in more details what you don’t like on the current pattern?

                  AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

                  Hello Anthony.. the vibe patterns increase to maximum intensity - to nearly constant vibration over time..

                    Hello, we use standard system alarms which should also affect DND.

                    More over if you use DND while sleeping, we should enable DND as you start sleep tracking and disable it in the morning as you end it..

                    AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

                    Guys, are you TouchWiz (Samsung)? They did havily modified standard DND mechanism. We do not have one of their devices in the office to test this. Anyway we do turn off DND in the morning when tracking stops, if Sleep as Android did enable it when sleep tracking started, if it was already on we do not touch it..

                        I think that this would be really hard to implement, Actions on Google do not have any way to start your phone apps from your voice commands, there is only a web service to trigger, even implementing a dedicated web service for that would also not help much as the service would need to somehow know what devices you use and where to send a Google Cloud Message for instance to trigger something.. This is something only Google knows so I believe support for this should be implemented on Google side as it was in Google Now actions (for example Sleep tracking can still be started from Google Now).. So at the moment I do not see a way how we could possibly implement this… sorry..

                        Here is a related technical thread:

                        +Robin, shortcuts won't work :(.. with shortcuts you can only substitute long commands to short.. but "Start sleep tracking" was supported in Google Now Voice Actions and is no more supported in Google Assistent which completely dropped support for on device actions for whatever reason only Google understands..

                        AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

                        I did not test on Google Home, but we had previously Now integration so basically telling Google Now "Start sleep tracking with Sleep" will start sleep tracking, also we support the standard start workout fitness intent and on Android Wear you can use "Start sleep tracking"..

                          Hello, in general recording should be paused if lullabies are used without headphones…

                          Also please note that there are 2 measured: snoring and noise and lullabies should really not affect snoring..

                          AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

                          Hello Gustavo, please setup a turn off when sleeping option, this will make sure to turn off the lullaby after the defined time or we sense you are sleeping, at that time we won't record your sound and analyze it for sound recognition..

                            +Yuri.. you can do that, if you turn off vibrate in Lucid settings your watch won't vibrate..an you can use Automate to vibrate on the phone if you need that..

                            AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

                            You can adjust number of repeats, but I think on most Android devices there is no vibration intensity only length..

                              We allow to add Play Music playlist as your alarm, but this may not work on all environments as there is no API for Google Play we have to use a reverse engeneered approach, definitely only local music will work..

                                Are you reffering to Twilight? In this case:

                                Sorry but this not technically feasible.. nothing can cover the nav bar buttons in Android and immersive more can only be set with activities but not with a background service for other screens..

                                If this is about Sleep as Android:
                                - this is Pixel problem only – do hou have a Pixel phone? IMHO there is a bug in Pixels in immersive mode..otehrwise sleep tracking uses an immrsive mode and it works well on my nexus 5x for example..

                                AdminPetr Nálevka (Developer, Urbandroid) commented  · 

                                Adras, when screen is dimmed in sleep tracking (after 20s) the navigation bar get hidden as well, does that not happen on 1+?

                                Othrwise there is always your device screen timeout which will turn off screen and also prevent overburning..

                                      Unfortunately those service do not have an API in most cases.. we have integrated Spotify but even there the API far from perfect to allow us a problem less integration..

                                        Many thanks, we should improve here, but please note that we only connect to devices in range which have HR service, after we first successufully get HR from a device we use that device next time when we connect without a new search among near by devices.. only if we cannot connect we search again..

                                        +FireNight TV is never selected as it does not have a HR service :) but we may be connecting to your neighbors HR tracker that's plausible.. :).. anyway as I said this is only the first time we search for a device, as we have it we connect to that device directly..

                                            +Stefan.. many thanks.. we try to avoid any custom components on screen shich are so important as the alarm dialog... but we have an option - long press to dismiss in settings-alarm-control.. you can also setup an CAPTCHA which we strongly recommend...dismiss is only possible if you complete a little task.. but for obvious reasons both options are not ON by default..
