Frustrated with lack of control over hubs

Cupertino, July 27, 2023

Granted, I know I have a more unique setup, but damn it’s annoying. I have two houses next to each other with Apple Home set up in each. Every few weeks, a few HomePods (in house 1) will decide to jump ship and connect to house 2’s Wi-Fi. When this happens, all the devices in house 1 go offline. I then have to switch Wi-Fi networks on the affected hubs and wait for HK to sort itself out afterwards.

Next thing that happens, the HPmini I have at house 2 will become the connected hub for house 1 (even though they’re in different homes and on different Wi-Fi networks!), rendering everything offline. When you go to the hubs tab, all hubs show up and are not separated into their respective homes. And we now don’t have the option of disabling hubs like before. Now the only way to remedy this is to physically plug out the HPmini and wait for HK to choose another hub to connect with.

Is there a way to stop HomePods from searching for known networks? I’m assuming it is pulling network info from iCloud.
