Question: Remote 2nd home HomePod

I have a HomePod and HomeKit accessories, e.g., iHome SmartMonitor, Phillips Hue, etc., at a remote 2nd home. HomePod lost connection to the internet/WiFi, but I know that WiFi and internet are working due other non-HomeKit devices still working. So, I think whatever happened was an issue with HomePod. How can I reset HomePod remotely to recover from such an error?

HomePod, iOS 11.3

I don't believe that you can. Potentially you could put the HomePod on a smart outlet that you could power cycle without HomeKit, or add an Apple TV 4/4K so you had a second HomeHub to fall back on. I've seen a suggestion that if you disable both Siri options on the HomePod it may have a tendency to drop its network connection, although I haven't tested that myself.
