Notification received

Is there a way to use a notification received by my phone to turn on a switch in Hubitat

Not natively--the Hubitat mobile app does not support "actionable notifications," nor does any third-party solution I'm aware of. But it's possible I'm missing something there; perhaps someone who uses one of those can chime in.

Tasker is probably your best bet, if you use Android phones. You would need to use AutoNotification I think as well.

Not on your phone per se (but you could have the notification go to both), but you could set up a virtual notification device that is also a switch, maybe something like:
