HomeKit broke on macOS after updating devices to iOS 15

Has anyone noticed that HomeKit is broken on macOS? I think it started when I updated my iOS / tvOS / etc devices to iOS 15. None of my homes are charging [Home.app](https://Home.app) or third party applications on macOS. This is the case on three separate MacBooks. Instead, a new empty “My Home” is created. However, this house is not visible on iOS, which shows that the original houses are very good. I tried to disable and re-enable HomeKit on macOS devices. I also disabled and re-enabled iCloud Keychain if it is somehow involved. None of this helped. I thought maybe iOS 15 made changes to the HomeKit database that were incompatible with Big Sur. I upgraded one of my Macs to the Monterey launcher today and that didn’t help either. I’m starting to think the problem is on my side somehow. The attached screenshot shows the empty house, without cameras, scenes or accessories. https://preview.redd.it/xsuz8nyv9gv71.png?width=1238&format=png&auto=webp&s=9c2bd728f5d2144a23ec36ac9e92eb9f7e0f91f8
