HomePod mini temperature sensor does not trigger automation

Cupertino, February 12, 2024

I have two automations configured in Apple Home: 1. When the temperature is below 18°C, turn on the smart plug, if the time is between 7:00 and 23:00 2. When the temperature is above 20°C, turn off the smart plug The temperature sensor is my HomePod mini, and the smart plugs are Eve Energy (Matter) Smart Plugs. Automation 1 (Start) never fires, while Automation 2 (Stop) works fine every time. If I test the automations in Apple Home, both work fine. I also have a shortcut that records the temperature in a note, and I have a bunch of automations to trigger that every 6 hours. I can see this morning that the HomePod mini registered a temperature of 15.9°C at 6am, so I have no idea why Automation 1 isn't working. ​ ​
