In order to use IFTTT as an sensor on Conrad Connect please follow the instructions:

Log in to your IFTTT account

On “Webhooks” service page go to settings. You will see URL your unique URL. Copy a key after “https://maker.ifttt.com/use/” E.g. If your URL is: https://maker.ifttt.com/use/abc123, you need to copy "abc123".

Make a new applet on IFTTT. As “this” select something you want (e.g. Button or Email)

As “that” select "Webhooks"

URL: https://dashboard.conradconnect.de/api/webhook/ifttt?key=abc123 (Where "abc123" is the same key you used to authenticate with)
Method: Post
Content-Type: application/json
Body: {"event":"EVENT_NAME"} Create an"EVENT_NAME" which will be used for IFTTT sensor on Conrad Connect in the "event" field
Now, on Conrad Connect you are able to use IFTTT applet as a sensor.
