Good morning everyone,
I recently picked up a ceiling fan that uses WiFi. It is a Hampton bay that uses the Hubspace app.

I can connect it tough Alexa. I tied just adding a virtual switch but not working as is should. Didn't know if anyone has had any luck or working on a integration. When I added the virtual switch with HE on the Alexa side it shows up as a light and not a switch so unable to tune it on with routines. Any thoughts would be great. Thank you.

My Alexa app allows me to choose between light and switch for virtual switches. Have you tried going into Alexa and tapping the device's settings icon?

I will have to look into that. Thank you. I will also let you know if that worked.

Thank you. I was able to get the light over to a switch. I still can not make the virtual switch show up under "when this happens" \ "smart home". I think if i could i would be able to connect this and make this a button on my Dashboard.

You’ll need to have a virtual contact sensor for it to trigger an Alexa Routine. I use the following driver for this purpose:

I have the same fan and it works very well in Alexa but I want to add it to Hubitat C7. Is there an integration with Hubspace and Hubitat ?

By the way, I am completely new to Hubitat.


There's currently no Hubspace integration (native or community).

Since Hubspace is a cloud-based wifi system without a public API, there's little (realistically zero) chance of ever having a direct integration with Hubitat.

ETA -- as a new user, welcome to Hubitat! I realize this news of non-compatibility with Hubspace is a bummer, but Hubitat is focused on ecosystems that are designed for local control (e.g. zigbee / z-wave) or offer a pathway to local control (e.g. a public API to tap into). Perhaps they'll someday open an API -- that would change things.

I ended up connecting it to my home assistant.
