Help with HomeKit and Thread

Hi all! We hope you can all help me, because I’ve really tried to figure out how to make Thread work in my HomeKit setup. Thread-enabled setup is as follows: – x1 Apple TV 4K – x2 HomePod minis (stereo pair) – x2 Nanoleaf Essentials light strips – x4 Nanoleaf Essentials A19 bulbs I noticed when I received the lights that they were * extremely * slow to responds compared to my Hue lights, with scenes that constantly fail because of how slow they were. After researching in the Thread network section of the Eve application, I found that all my lights work on Bluetooth, without accessories designated as hubs / routers – HomePods and Apple TV do not even appear. I updated, started and reset everything, completely unable to put Thread to work. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated! ** Edit: ** In an interesting development, some accessories now say that they are on the Thread, despite the fact that they are connected to Bluetooth. Everything still works extremely slowly. We’ve also included some relevant screenshots: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0JbFjKMdcC2lR-kK6-8IleDjA
