    I have several items controlled via HomeKit through my HomePod and Apple TV’s. Every so often, an accessory becomes uncontrollable by HomeKit. At the moment, my TV bias light is out of the loop. I say “turn on the tv light” and the HomePod gives me “uhoh something went wrong, please try again” and the AppleTV says it cannot find that device. However, in each case, the accessory is still showing in the Home App and still controllable in the Home App. Adding to the weirdness, I create scenes as a workaround. I make the scene “turn on tv light” and now HomePod can turn on the tv light.

    Anyone else see weird HomeKit behavior like this?

    Hopefully those who HomeKit enabled accessories will reply soon.

    I get this same thing quite often. I can't figure out what's going on with it.
    Sometimes I get Siri telling me that I don't have any HomeKit devices set up, but I have 11. I wait a minute or two and it works just fine.
    I don't have a HomePod, so can't help there.
    I'll be following this in case someone can come in here and explain how to fix it.

    Isn’t these kind issues traceable to eventual connectivity issues going on with the WiFi router?
