Routers Home Kit – Velop Configuration

Routers Home Kit – Velop Configuration

So I set up the network and routers – pretty simple. 3 nodes AC2200. I’m going to install a HomeKit configuration for mine and I thought it would be best and easiest to set up a direct network if they have questions. My question is about HomeKit routers – does it really matter which one? when I add them, it shows 3 nodes, but does not distinguish which is which. when I identify routers through HomeKit, it always flashes green only on the main router. So I don’t really know which router is in which room. HomeKit also states that “your router name does not match the WIFI name (SSID), it is the third party application to change this”. I could disconnect each of them, see who doesn’t answer, and rename them. But … some of this matters … really. I don’t see any value in knowing what room or group it’s in, because it doesn’t do Airplay or really any other real HomeKit function. Mostly just interested, does it even matter? Thanks!
