New Hue Hub and Siri

I tried to do a forum search but couldnt find anyone answering this question. My apologies if this has been addressed.

Anyway, I updated to the new hue hub today. Process was pretty seamless. My question is this, when I use siri to turn lights on and off, does smartthings not see the change? If not, siri control is not very useful if you run lighting routines within smartthings.

SmartThings polls the Hue bridge about every 5 minutes. So it should catch up with the status eventually, but not immediately.

Why only every 5mins? Seems pretty slow considering its on an internal LAN and could do it every 5 seconds. You’d think one of the first things you’d program a hub to do though is push out its status straight after doing something though.

Maybe this helps:
