I don't really use Airplay so can't help there. Maybe when I get my HomePod. At the moment still playing with the Homekit stuff. About half way thru. So far it looks like this.

I saw you have fan in your control list, do you use Aqara 3 rockers D1 switch to control your fan? is that normal celing fan?
i have 2x 3 rockers wall switch and 1x 2 rockers switch (not D1) installed in my home, 3 of them connected with 1 fan and others with florescent light, 3 rockers wall switch will burnt off and smoke coming out from it when 3 connected devices all switch. But 2 rockers wall switch safe.

Answer from the seller (TMALL- China) told me that this switch cannot connect with ceiling fan.

Yes, control on and off for the fan will be fine, usually speed will not use to be change frequent.

The danger with fans is the power factor. Old AC electrical fans can use up to 100W average at maximum speed and this can potentially burn the switch relay when spinning up. So it is not advisable to use the smart switch with electrical fans.

DC fans have much lower power requirements. It is still a bit of a risk due to the power factor, but less so.
Having said that, I'm using a Terncy no-neutral smart switch with an AC electric fan so far without an issues. However, I don't run the fan at the maximum speed setting. I have no experience with the Aqara D1 switches.

You need to look at the individual gang power/current rating (not the total current or power loading of the smart switch). A factor of 5x (rating of the gang is 5x the max power/current requirement of the device) should be the minimum when trying to determine if it is safe. Also, don't put the fan in series with any other electrical device.
