Hue Smart button does not run Shortcut when tapped, even though HomeApp detects presses

Cupertino, October 4, 2021

I have a Hue Smart button managed via HomeKit. It's been running a shortcut to conditionally set one of two scenes depending on the state of my lights. Has worked beautifully for months.

In the last week it stopped working. When I load the button's setting page I can see the button presses getting registered by, but my scenes do not change. If I tap Test This Action it works as expected.

Has this started happening to anyone else recently? I assume the HomePpd software was updated in conjunction with iOS 15. Is this a regression?
