Virtual Switch not under Misc Devices?

Is there a plugin and/or a way to create a virtual device that’s a virtual device (a switch) that actually goes under the “On/Off Switch” category? I’m trying to get a virtual switch that will play nice with the Python library, but it seems hungup on the fact that the VirtualSwitch plugin creates a Misc Device as opposed to an actual On/Off Switch.

Might be the same issue that was seen when trying to use the virtual switch with Alexa. Try category 3, subcategory 0. See this post:,47297.msg313690.html#msg313690

That was it, thank you!
