Was trying to automate our Wemo Mini Smart Plug to turn off 30 minutes after being turned on. Works fine using Wemo app but thought I would try it via the Apple Home App.
Went into the Home App, chose automation and wanted to set up a rule via "An Accessory is Controlled" to turn off the plug after 30 minutes. Unfortunately this type of automation is grayed out even though the Wemo plug is accessible in the Home app and responds correctly to direct commands from there.

This could isolated on the Homekit App itself since you can control the unit with no issues on both apps. You may try contacting Apple Support and have their insights on the setback.
