    Had a very brief (10 minutes) power outage yesterday morning. Noticed last night that my automations didn't trigger. Not this morning either. Apple TV is working fine. Any idea why the power outage would cause them to stop working? Rebooted Apple TV and we'll see what happens when next automation triggers.

    I've had exactly the same thing ! I had timers set up on my smart-switches and light bulbs and they stopped working after power outages, I've deleted the timers and reprogrammed and nothing ! not sure if this problem is deep-rooted in Homekit or if its in the device app, however my devices are not all the same brand and have individual apps and the problem is the same.

    A small UPS could be the best thing for this kind of problem.

    I think Apple Fixing it would be the best kind of thing for this problem.
