Hue light scenes + Homekit automation = Failure

Hue light scenes + Homekit automation = Failure

I have 6 of the color-changing Hue lights installed as soffit lights on the front perimeter of my house. I created a scene for Halloween colors. When I create the scene in Homekit, it works as expected. However … When I add the scene to an automation (At sunset, turn on the lights and set the scene), some lights are set to the correct color and some by default to the soft white color that we have as standard. When I look at the Homekit scene, it tells me it’s not running. I wonder if there is an error with the way the scenes are set or if something else has to happen. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how did you fix or resolve it?
