Do you have any ideas on how to isolate / secure HomeKit devices on a network without a HomeKit router and without the ability to create separate VLANs, but still be able to access the HomeKit hub?

Do you have any ideas on how to isolate / secure HomeKit devices on a network without a HomeKit router and without the ability to create separate VLANs, but still be able to access the HomeKit hub?

I have an Orbi mesh network that I am very happy with that I bought before going into home automation, so I don’t want to replace it. I would like to secure my network by isolating or restricting HomeKit smart devices from the network. The Orbi router does not have the ability to create multiple VLANs, and using the “Guest” network keeps all devices on it isolated so that it can’t talk to anything else on the guest network, including the HomeKit hub. not work either. Do you have any idea what I could do? For now, I’ve tried to use parental controls (Disney Circle) to block Internet access, but I know it’s not a complete solution.
