Problem with HomeKit recognizing switching, but not activating automation

Cupertino, January 31, 2021

I have some pretty simple action settings when I press a button on an Ikea Tradfri remote (connected via Homebridge). Some buttons set a scene, while others simply switch or turn off a light. I have an Applek 4k that acts as a hub. From time to time, I will press a button and no action will happen. I can see the activated button if I pull up the Home application (the remote icon reacts to the push of a button) and I can also watch the push of a button in the Homebridge logs. When this happens, I am also not able to control the lights remotely (tested using my mobile phone), which makes me think it is a Hub problem. So far I have tried to connect and disconnect from iCloud on AppleTV, which temporarily solved my problem, and I have completely restarted AppleTV, which has solved the problem so far, but only a few hours have passed so far. AppleTV is on TVOS 14.3 Is this a common problem? Is there a solution?
