Hi all. My HomePod and HomeKit automation is driving me crazy - when trying to activate a scene or turn on a light bulb, Siri on the HomePod will say that some devices are not responding. However, if i use Siri on my phone - it works as expected.

If power cycle the HomePod, everything works as expected for a short time, and then the problem starts happening again.

Anyone have similar issues. HomePod is running 14.1.

you could also try rebooting your router, shouldn't hurt, and might help


I've had issues in the past where devices use stop responding to HomePod, but work on the phone, just like you, it would last for a few hours to a day, and then it works fine.

Is the wifi in your house a good solid coverage throughout the house?
Some folk say that is the wifi in the house isn't that great then it can cause issues with smart home stuff working together.
