Lights come on in the middle of the night (since installing HomeBridge)

Cupertino, February 11, 2024

I have a very minimal Homekit setup with a few IKEA lights, Apple TV and a humidifier. Nothing fancy or complicated really. There are a few scenes and automations, but again nothing more elegant than turning everything off when no one is home and turning on the humidifier at sunrise. I installed HomeBridge for the first time sometime last week to use the enhanced Apple TV plugin. Since installation there have been two nights where the lights would randomly turn on while I was sleeping, at least the two light bulbs next to the bed (maybe even the ones in the living room but I can't remember because I just hit "turn off all lights ” while still half asleep). Because it started happening since I installed HomeBridge, I'm guessing that's somehow the source, any idea how I can figure it out and/or fix it? Thank you! P.S. I haven't noticed anything else weird with the lights going off/on randomly or when they shouldn't, except they won't automatically turn off when I leave (yet?) although I'm not 100% that that automation actually worked haha .
