Hello RE! This applies to Thread networks in general. The Thread Border Router (HomePod mini and/or Apple TV 4K 2nd generation) set up the Thread network only contains Thread enabled accessories. It is the border router to other communications like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. So a Thread enabled accessory can't connect an accessory that is not Thread enabled. Bluetooth is only used as a fallback and for adding a thread enabled accessory. Best regards, Volker
