The automation created in HomeKit starts with its trigger, it does not stop (completely) after the required time

Cupertino, October 12, 2020

I installed the widely discussed Netatmo ringtone on Reddit. It works well here, but Homekit works against it.

I created a trigger scene, all my Hue bulbs turn red. The Apple Home application does not allow "pressing the button" on Netatmo as a trigger. Therefore, I used the "EVE" application. (I used the same EVE. To close window curtains when the outside temperature gets above 23 ° C and that works well)

So go back to Apple's Home app. In "Automation" I find the EVE. created the "If-Then" rule. At the end I can choose "stop after ...". It's 1 minute.

After the bell rings, all the bulbs turn red, but after a minute, sometimes no bulbs go out, other times some of the bulbs go out instead of all the bulbs.

Can anyone tell me why Homekit doesn't complete this automation?
