Asking Homekit Siri to show a specific camera always shows only the same camera. All settings are correct to the best om my knowledge. Could ir be that none of the Arlo devices including the Base are not Homekit Certified?

4 Arlo Pros connected and showing in HK. At first the names appeared in HK as serial numbers for two of them and the other two were just blank. So I changed their names manually in HK. Then I tried to show one with Siri command, show. I tried all 4 different names and always showed the same one. I restarted my iPhone and they are back to serial numbers for two and blanks for the other two. In Arlo app, if I go to Settings -> HomeKit you see the blanks, and serial numbers. If you go to Settings -> My Devices you will see the names I gave them in the Arlo app. I attached photos. I have no idea what I did wrong. I imagine when I added my cameras I must have done it wrong.

I am having the same issue.  Cameras have same names in both Homekit and Arlo.
