Siri asks for “White or Color” when it is called to turn the lights off or on

Hello everyone, the new mini HomePod owner here. In recent years I have had a kind of voice assistant in my apartment, starting with an Echo Show, then moving to the Nest Hub and now to a HomePod mini. So I got used to saying things in a certain way and this is the first problem that came up with HomePod. Before, I simply asked Alexa or Google to “turn off the lights” when I wanted all the lights to go out. When I say the same thing to Siri, she asks me “White or Color?” and it makes an endless loop, no matter what I say. If I say “Cancel,” Siri says, “Okay, I won’t.” This also happens if I say “turn on the lights”. If I specify a certain brightness or say “lights in room x”, then it works fine. What happens?

EDIT: I should probably mention that all my lights are LIFX. Some are GU10 color bulbs, one is mini color, along with a Z band, faience and beam.
