Your formula is valid, and it will alert at the first occurrence of the H touching or crossing the S1 from below.
But to color a price bar, you must use the formula in the Color Bar Based On Alert Condition study's Alerts tab.

However, the H rarely crosses S1 from below, so you may not see many colored bars.

The formula to compare price to S1 in $ would look something like this:
AND(C[-1]>ID1.SG3[-1]-TICKSIZE*100,C<ID1.SG3-TICKSIZE*100)
This will alert at the first occurrence when the Close price is $1 below S1, assuming the tick size is 0.01 and equals 1 cent.

Your formula AND(H[-1]<ID1.SG3, H>=ID1.SG3) alerts when the High of the previous bar is below S1 and the High of the current bar is touching or above S1.

Use a formula like this to alert when the price first comes within $1 from above S1, assuming the tick size is 0.01 and equals 1 cent:
AND(C[-1]>ID1.SG3[-1]+TICKSIZE*100,C<ID1.SG3+TICKSIZE*100)
