Camera summaries for lights and blinds no longer appear when turned off/closed?

Cupertino, September 17, 2023

I'm not sure "summaries" is the right terminology. I'm referring to the section at the top of a room view that has transparent tiles that say "4 lights on" or "2 blinds open" for example. They appeared regardless of the state of the devices. It would say "On" or "Off" depending on the state of the lights and "Open" or "Closed" for the blinds. This was useful because I could toggle the entire set with one tap without having to explicitly group them or create separate "open all" / "close all" / "turn on all" / "disable all" scenes . However, now they don't appear at all if the blinds are closed or the lights are off. They only appear if they are open/on. I don't think this coincided with an iOS update (unless there was one happening in the background that I just missed) and seems to be new since this morning or maybe yesterday. Anyone else experiencing this? Is this a bug or was it intentional? Neither force quitting the app nor restarting the phone helped.
