Troubleshooting – Hub Interval

Troubleshooting – Hub Interval

/ RateMyDiagnosis I have three light strips in the kitchen that are controlled by HomeKit and have some automation based on time and movement. The TV in the nearby room was the center and worked well. Before. I recently bought a HomePod Mini for another room, away from the kitchen. Automation seems to work, but only 1 or 2 of the 3 lights respond correctly (different lights at different times). I assume that HomePod has taken over the role of bridge, but it has problems with autonomy and walls, and the signals (Bluetooth?) Do not reach the lights well. 1. Does this seem like a reasonable diagnosis? 2. Are you likely to get a second HomePod Mini for the kitchen? How would HomeKit know to prefer the HomePod kitchen as a hub? All appreciative help, thank you!
