Homepod mini one-time automation not possible via Homepod‘s Siri, but works via my iPhone‘s Siri

Cupertino, July 27, 2023

Hi, I have set up my Homepod minis as a stereo pair in Homekit and added a hue bridge with a hue light as well. Everything’s working as it should, except one thing: if i ask via Siri to turn off the light in x minutes, the homepod always says „i don’t recognize your voice, you can set up recognition in the home app“. It‘s already set up, I can ask for personal messages and it will play them happily.

The weird thing is that the request to turn off lights in x minutes works if I use Siri on my iPhone.

I have 2FA enabled, restarted the Homepods, iphone, I have deleted the Home and re-set everything, Siri is enabled in iCloud, and I have tried both myself and „homepod account“ as a primary user.

Any ideas?
