The U2 curse will never go away

The U2 curse will never go away

So I have a home automation that triggers the HomePod to play a sound if the garage (or patio door) is open. Play a sound file in my library that says "the garage door is open"

It works for good months. Until today. I was doing things, I went in and out of the garage and on the terrace, and when I got into the house I didn't realize why my HomePod was playing U2!

Then I made the connection that every time I opened the terrace door it triggered not my sound file, but U2 (ugggghhh whyyyyy).

All the automation settings were correct and the sound file still works fine, only my automation doesn't work as expected. Tried to delete the sound file again and U2 again.

We have disabled the automation for now, because they cannot make them work as they have done so far.

Any idea?
