    So Ive been having this pretty annoying problem with my homepod where I'll ask it to adjust my lights and it will say nothing for about 5 seconds and then respond with "checking" and then it won't do anything. If I use my phone it works perfectly. If I unplug the homepod and plug it back in it will work for awhile, and then it will eventually have the same problem. Seems to happen after a day or so. Anybody else having a similar issue and have some sort of fix? I'm considering brining it back and seeing what they say, because home kit control was a huge part of why I got it to begin with.

    Have you tried removing HomePod and then setting it up again? Are both on the same WiFi network? I had this problem a while back. In my case removing HomePod and setting it up again did the trick.
