Hue buttons do not respond to the first press

Cupertino, October 6, 2021

If anyone has a solution, I would really appreciate it. So this may be a Hue problem or a Homekit problem, but for about a week or so, the Hue Tap, Dimmer switch and button need to be pressed 3 times to finally respond and turn on the lights. I'm using Hue Bridge and I changed the channel number, but that didn't fix it. It is not too close to the router (about 1.5 ft). So I don't think interference is the problem. All accessories are configured through Homekit and for the most part use shortcuts to press buttons. I'm not sure if that could be a cause or not. ... Edit: (8/28) troubleshooting ... After comparing the responsiveness of the accessories with the homekit vs. pressed twice before starting anything. Okay, so now that's been discovered. Which is the solution?
