    Trouble with IFTTT Applet

    I'm trying to create an IFTTT Applet that will trigger an Alexa routine to tell me when someone has rung the doorbell - because my Insteon doorbell sounder broke a while back, and naturally, SmartHome has seen fit to discontinue the thing..but I digress....

    In the IF section, I have the HomeSeer service activated, and tI want it to search for an ON signal from the Input Sensor on an IOLinc device. But I can't find that particular device - I see the Output Relay, but the Input Sensor from that selfsame IOLinc is not listed. Would this have something to do with the latest troubles with the Alexa discovery process? Something about finding the root device but not the children?

    PS: If you're wondering what the THEN is going to be, it's going through the SendAlexaActionBymkZense service, which will call an IFTTTrigger, which in turn will call an Alexa Routine, which will say "Ding Dong" on all my Echo devices.
