Set the alarm without promptly using the smart jack

I try to respond to the "turn away from home" prompt because it doesn't work on my iPhone, sometimes I just get notified and I forget to set the alarm when I'm away from home.

However, I want to try to work out a solution, so I configured an automation in which a plug is linked to the alarm by an automation (plug on = alarm off, plug off = alarm on), and at the start you have to turn off the jack and as a result set the alarm, but this seems to be no longer working?

Has this changed in a recent update? When you go to this solution, it doesn't mention that it doesn't work anymore, so I wonder if this is a problem with my specific HomeKit settings (or an error) or intentional behavior.
