A few questions from a noob HomeKit

Hi everyone, I just started using HomeKit and tried two cameras to get started. Aqara G2H and Eufy Pan & Tilt. We’ll keep Aqara, but I have some questions about how to optimize the setting. In general, my intention is to use the Apple Home application exclusively. 1. When you use two-way sound in the Aqara app, it’s like you’re on the phone, good quality and uninterrupted. When you do the same in the Home application, the sound from the phone to the camera is very agitated. Although in our test, both devices were on the same WiFi. Can I do something about it? 2. The Eufy app has a nice alarm function. Is there anything I could imitate with Aqara? 3. We have two mini-homepods. Is there an option to play loud music through those when there is movement in the house at a time when we are not at home or even better an alarm sound that we mentioned earlier? 4. Once, one of us leaves his phone at home, so HomeKit would not recognize that we are gone. Is there an option to manually set the house “away”? Thank you in advance!
