Trouble with HKSV multiple homes homepods and hubs since iOS

Wondering if anyone else is having the same trouble I am.

I have two HomeKit homes. One is my home, the other is my studio a few miles from my house.

At the studio I have a HomePod being used as a hub along with a Logi Circle setup with HomeKit secure video.

At home I have two HomePods and an Apple TV.

On Wednesday, all my devices got the update. So iPhones, watch, iPad, Apple TV, and not homepods. I figured that since the studios hub is a HomePod I wouldn’t get face recognition or zones there until the HomePod has that option. These things are working fine at home with my netatmo welcome.

After the iOS 14 update, at the studio, it stopped recording when it was supposed to. And in the recordings timeline it shows a time it was offline when around the time my home devices updated. See photo [here](https://i.imgur.com/hHkTlNt.jpg) Oddly I do have the option to enable face recognition and zones at the studio, even though it the hub there is only a HomePod.

Even more interesting is that if I check the hub for the studio, it lists my Apple TV from the other home as being used. Look at this [screenshot](https://i.imgur.com/GeUQjy2.jpg)
Only the “office HomePod” is on this HomeKit at this location. The other two are at home. Is this a bug?

How do I fix my recording issue? I tried to follow circle WiFi update instructions [here](https://support.logi.com/hc/en-hk/articles/360023265434-How-do-I-use-my-Circle-2-Camera-with-Apple-HomeKit-#h_80435716-ae70-46c0-b187-cc55120a3069), but step six never shows up. So now it’s just on not responding.

I knew that not releasing a HomePod update was going to make things screwy.
