I can't get the Home Assistant to constantly communicate with the HomeKit. I have Home Assistant installed on a Raspberry Pi 3 that spans two networks. eth0 is connected to the network on which my HomePit HomePod is located. wlan0 is connected to the VLAN on which my Tasmota devices are located. I added Home Assistant as a bridge in Home and Home shows Tasmota devices, but the status of Tasmota devices is always "No Answer". I use the latest Homekit, Tasmota and Mosquitto Broker integrations in Home Assistant. I can control Tasmota devices in the Home Assistant, so I know that the Home Assistant communicates with the devices. In comparison, I have Homebridge installed on another Raspberry Pi 3 with the same network configuration, i.e. eth0 is connected to the network on which my HomePit HomePod is located (the same ethernet network to which the Raspberry Pi Home Assistant is connected). Wlan0 is connected to the VLAN on which my Tasmota devices are located (the same wifi network to which the Home Assistant Raspberry Pi is connected). For Tasmota devices that are configured to communicate with Homebridge, they respond in the HomeKit. I have an Ubiquiti USG with a firewall that blocks (eliminates) traffic from the Tasmota VLAN to the main network, but has no specific rules for the Home Assistant Raspberry Pi that is connected to the main network via ethernet. That is, the Raspberry Pi Home Assistant can communicate with any client on the main network just like the Raspberry Pi Homebridge. Do you have any ideas or suggestions on what might cause the Home Assistant's unresponsive devices to not respond to HomeKit?
