IFTTT library sendEvent difficulty

I am trying to send use IFTTT to notify me if my garrage door is left open. I’ve basically copied the example code from the library but I always get the error
2015-11-16 16:11:14 UTC-8 [Agent] ERROR: Failed to activate IFTTT trigger 2015-11-16 16:11:14 UTC-8 [Agent] ERROR:

Here’s my code:
`//function to allert through IFTTT that the door is open
function doorOpenIFTTT(device_reply) {
// Trigger an event with no values and a callback
ifttt.sendEvent(“Garage open”, function(err, response) {
if (err) {
server.error("Failed to activate IFTTT trigger ");

server.log("IFTTT request working " + device_reply);


This http request generated by the IFTTT maker chanel works…
https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/Garage open/with/key/<my_key>
with “my_key” being my key.

What am I doing wrong?

I figured it out… the space in “Garage open” is not allowed. Changing it to “Garage_closed” made it work. Just had to change my IFTTT recipie to the same thing.
