Siri ask my on or off - why?


I want to control my Roborock S8 maxv Ultra with HA. Now I want to use Siri to say to HomePod, for example: “Hey Siri, clean kitchen”. I use an automation for this and add it to HomeKit. Now when I give the command, Siri asks me, “Do you want to turn this on or off?”

Does anyone have any idea that Siri won’t ask me that?

It’s because automations and scripts are exposed to HK as switches. So, Siri needs to be told to turn it on or off. There are ways to get around this (create a scene in HK that turns the automation “on”, for instance).

Perfect it works - thanks
