HomePod Mini causes problems with HomeKit - does that mean it's faulty?

Cupertino, January 7, 2022

I have a HomePod mini among 4 HomePods, 2 Apple TVs and 3 other HomePods. Since iOS 15 or so (last month) I only had problems with HomeKit in an almost flawless system that has been running without reset for the last 2 years or so. We've established that this mini creates a kind of lock. When it crashes, first all cameras stop recording, all cameras stop motion detection and notifications. I can still get a live video. When the cameras do this, the lights become delayed in response to switches and more. Removing HomePod mini from HomeKit will leave a HomePod mini "kitchen" in my system, which then causes a bunch of unanswered issues. If I wait about 30 minutes, it will eventually be over. Then I have to do a clean install. I had to do this process a few times ago. I find it flawed. Has anyone seen this before?
