Anyone have problems with Siri not recognizing device names?

Cupertino, December 24, 2021

I have a SwitchBot curtain in the living room (connected via Homebridge). It's called the "Living Room Curtain." When I say, "Hey, Siri, open the living room curtain," she says, "I'm sorry, I can't find such a thing in your living room." However, she will recognize it as the "Living Room Window". I tried to rename the curtains in the SwitchBot application as well as in the HomeKit. Everywhere I look it is called "curtains", not "window" and yet the curse does not recognize the name I have. What's really confusing is that this was working until a few weeks ago, when I moved my Homebridge to a new computer. I reset all the HomeKit caches I can find in this regard and all my other devices on Homebridge migrated very well ... just not this one. Any idea?
