MINIR4M and Matter

Hi Everyone,

I have installed MINIR4M and used it with Apple’s HomeKit post pairing with the eWeLink app first. But on random intervals, I get device unresponsive messages on Apple’s Home app.

Does this mean, it’s using Matter over WiFi and not using my Apple TV or HomePod as Matter hub? (I don’t have any other Matter hubs at home)

Do I have to pair it with Apple’s Home App first and then pair with eWeLink app? Do you think that will solve the issue? Or I am making some other mistake.

Any help is appreciated.
