Thick white circle around iOS garage door widget?

Cupertino, October 8, 2023

Hello - I have a HonmeKit bridge setup via HomeAssistant that links my Chamberlin garage door to my iOS Home app. The Chamberlin garage door opener is not a HomeKit model, so I use the HomeKit Bridge through HomeAssistant. I can control my garage door through the iOS Home app and see its open/close status correctly in the iOS Home app - no problems there. Occasionally, however, a thick white ring appears around the widget on my iPhone (iPhone 12/iOS 17), shown in the photo. The ring doesn't affect the operation or status indication of the garage door - but I can't figure out what it means or how to remove it. I've tried deleting the HomeKit Bridge from Home Assistant, removing the bridge from the Home app, removing the iOS widget - then adding everything as new. But the thick white circle persists. Any ideas what this circle means and how I can remove it?
