Does automation take too long to start?

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

I have an automation that when the Aqara door sensor appears as open, HomePod playa audio file. The audio file is not delayed, the sound starts immediately after 0:00 from the audio file. When I open the door, there is a good delay of 5-7 seconds before I hear the "open door" over the HomePod. I have enabled iPhone notifications for this door sensor and it is instantaneous. I get a notification as soon as I knock on the door, so I know there's no delay in HK. What could be the cause and how can I speed this up?
