HomeKit button shortcuts no longer work

HomeKit button shortcuts no longer work

Any actions I’ve assigned to a HomeKit button as a shortcut (the “Convert to shortcut” option at the bottom, under Advanced when you select scenes or actions to assign when you press the button) have recently stopped working. I had set up some simple automations to dim / light the Philips Hue lights based on their current brightness when I pressed the button. These automations still work as expected in the iOS Home app when you click “Test this action”. The button icon also animates in the Home application when the physical button is pressed, suggesting that the pressed buttons are received, but the assigned shortcut action is still not running. Does anyone else have a problem with this? Any help / uggestions would be greatly appreciated!
