HomeKit Controller – Bluetooth range / transfer

HomeKit Controller – Bluetooth range / transfer

Anyone has a configuration where there is a Bluetooth HomeKit device that is not within range of the HomeKit controller …. but you have another HomeKit device enabled as a controller and this device connects to the Bluetooth device and makes it work because is it in range?

We have an out-of-range Bluetooth Smartlock (intermittent “No Answer”) on the iPad controller and are considering using a new AppleTV configured as a controller, right next to the smartlock to operate it.

Does anyone have this type of configuration? Does it work reliably?
