The “Lights on” command to cover two rooms?

The “Lights on” command to cover two rooms?

Hello everyone, I have an open plan house, where the kitchen and living room are practically a large room. I have a HomePod in the living room and when I say “lights on” I would like both the kitchen lights and the living room lights to turn on, rather than the lights in the living room as it happens now. I appreciate that HomePod knows what room / area it is in, so just turn on those lights – but is there a way for two to turn both rooms / areas back on? At this point I have set up an automation (turn on the kitchen lights when the lights in the living room are on), but I’m surprised at how flakes they are. I have never had problems with HomeKit (strong mesh network, etc.), but for some reason this automation is sometimes delayed by a few seconds or sometimes fails completely. When I was in the Alexa ecosystem (I gradually replaced all my echoes) I could only group the areas.
