iOS 17 Fan Changes?

Cupertino, September 29, 2023

Hey guys, not sure if this is a universal change or something with mine. I'm using homebridge to get some ceiling fans into HomeKit, which has worked flawlessly since I started about a year and a half ago. After updating to iOS 17 I noticed that I can no longer say "Hey Siri, set the bedroom fan to X" Previously if the fan was off it would beep (to indicate the command, just like if I pressed the button on the fan remote ) and would set it to the stated speed, now it beeps but doesn't start the fan at the stated speed. I also used to press the cursor in homekit (instead of sliding my finger to the desired speed, which has some problems with fans in my experience), but I can't do this. Just wondering if anyone else is having this experience with the fans or if this is an isolated issue? Luck
