I know IFTT has changed alot, but I was able to figure it out. Spending too much time here, need to get busy on Honey-DO-List…

Here is my Alexa Open/Close Trigger recipe:

This is built on IFTTT.com Maker Platform

For ‘IF’ trigger choose “Amazon Alexa”, and “Say a specific phrase” from the dropdown. I chose “garage door 1” as my phrase.:

AlexaTrigger

For Action use Webhooks, and Select “Make a web request” from the dropdown. Field Label will be URL, and for “Value” enter “http://devip/cc?dkey=xxx&click=1”. You will need your device url (external ip:port), and device key in place of the “xxx” (dkey=xxx).

Alexa Action 1

The next step will have Field Label – “Method”, from the dropdown select “POST”.

Alexa Action, cont'd.

The rest of the Action is optional, and I did not use any of it.

Now, I just say “Alexa trigger garage door 1”, and the OG relay opens/closes the door.
