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

Cupertino, November 19, 2020

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.
