I just noticed this in the 1.4.0 version that in insights it groups amazon devices under Apple HomeKit.  As far as I know HomeKit cannot manage these unless someone has differing info?  @Robin or @Ciaran , fyi...

    Hi @Marc
    Thanks for your post. To explain, it is not grouping devices under some category. These Device details and Insights report show information and shortcuts for integrations like Applekit or openHAB or any other which can be used by the user if the user is looking for information on which devices are suitable for integration.

    @Robin , right, that's the issue.  Amazon devices CANNOT be used via HomeKit.  So these devices would not be suitable for integration and the grouping is misleading.  Thats where the confusion arises from.
