I had altogether too much fun telling Siri to "turn off the Space Shuttle" (basement) or "turn on the lights in the Pittie Palace" (living room full of dogs). But then, disaster struck: After disabling my house's power that evening to install a thermostat, I found myself prompted with the worst alert — the one that told me Siri wasn't connecting to HomeKit. After a bunch of panicked troubleshooting steps that mostly boiled down to "turn the HomeKit router on and off again", I finally considered that it might be a bug on the iOS side. Ding ding ding!
