The best network for HomeKit to work optimally?

Cupertino, January 31, 2021

I used HK from the beginning and now I run about 50 HK devices on several vendors. I've almost always had issues with "no response" from Hue devices (wired hub), unless I open the Home app and let it sit for about 60 seconds. Then it all connects. Similar problems with Aqara hubs. The network is a hero-optimized system and works very well. I can't stand the delays and no answers anymore. Either I have to get rid of all the Hue products (which would be replaced) and all the Aqara products, or I have to consider that eero can under-optimize HK traffic. Is there anything with ARP or multi-casting that makes eero slowing down HK traffic? Oh, and I run more Apple TVs and more HomePods, so there's no shortage of hosts. Wondering if moving back to an airport as a router and eero in Bridge would help. Any other suggestions?
