I am trying to replace a single pole light switch.it has one black wire(verified as hot) and one white wire (verified as neutral).  The switch controls power to the fan / light.  When switch is on, the light and / or fan will work based on its controls.  After connecting white to white and black to 1 black wire on HS200, I am able to setup switch on wifi.  Problem is it wont turn on the fan / light.  What am I missing?

You need two black wires - line in and load out, and a white wire - neutral.  If you don't have that 2nd black you've probably got a "power through fixture" circuit and the switch won't work there.

What if you tie both black wires to your load wire?

Nothing will change, that simply bypasses the HS200's relay.
