Smart Home Skill API Does not support device type = "Hub"

I am trying to add my device through Smart Home Skill API. Since my device is a hub, I would like to categorize my device as a "Hub" type. The Logitech Harmony Hub currently categorizes its device as "Hub" when added as a device through their Smart Home Skill. However, I currently don't see device type = "Hub" in the Smart Home API documentation.

Hi,

thanks for your post.

The 'HUB' category is not publicly available.

All the available smart home categories can be found here:

Kind regards,
