The wife cannot accept the HomeKit invitation

The wife cannot accept the HomeKit invitation

I’m still trying to give my wife the ability to accept the HomeKit invitation. I can add other apple IDs, but it locks to the “spinning wheel” when it joins (despite the fact that it seems to have been accepted from my end). I read that I can connect to iCloud on her device with an account that was successfully added to HomeKit on her device, then log out and log back into iCloud with her account. My question is, how do I log out of iCloud and keep HomeKit data on my device? I use an iPad with an Apple ID / iCloud account separate from hers and mine (but it was added to my HomeKit account), but when I log out of iCloud it doesn’t give me the option to keep the HomeKit on my iPad. I logged out of this third account, but I only say Keychain and another option, but without HomeKit. Suppose HomeKit data is saved under the Keychain? I didn’t choose any, but I logged out, then immediately reconnected to iCloud and noticed that the HomeKit data didn’t exist, despite the fact that this Apple / iCloud account is listed as a user in my Home app. I’m sorry for the long post and I hope it makes sense. I saw a forum where I can download a profile made by Apple and sent to a user to delete all HomeKit data, but I want to try everything possible, so I don’t have to add all the devices / automations / scenes again etc. … Also, the profile I mentioned only works if I manually set my time back to Feb. First, because this profile was created for a person / Apple case ID. I tried to call Apple, but they weren’t very helpful. Any suggestions?
