    The reflectors is just advertising.  What you need is to put a firewall between the VLAN's.  Have you tried to use the rules to block local network segments?  you can do that for both incoming/outgoing traffic.

    @firewalla yep, the rules are set up, but I think that's the problem. The reflector advertises my light switch on a VLAN that's blocked by a rule, so the software says the device isn't reachable. If the advertisement did not do that, then HomeKit could look on the Internet and hit my bridge, which talks to the devices on the VLAN that's blocked from internal communication.

    As it stands, it just stalls out. If I drop my Wi-Fi and switch to cellular, then my phone can see my HomeKit devices from outside (via the bridge), but I want to be able to do this while on an internal Wi-Fi network.
