PSA: Yale Lock Assure SL with M1 module does not work with HomePod Mini (works well with HomePod)

I’m moving into a new house, so I bought a mini HomePod to be a hub for the new location, while keeping the HomePod in the old location. My Ecobee thermostat works perfectly, the Logitech Circle View works perfectly … but the Yale Lock with the M1 wouldn’t work with the mini hub at home. I managed to use the lock only in the Bluetooth range. Always “unanswered” and without error codes when it failed. Anyway, I tried to goog and couldn’t find much useful help, but then I brought my HomePod to the new house and now it works perfectly. Are there two different Home Hub APIs implemented on these different hub devices? This seems strange to me.
