I have multiple remotes in my Harmony account

After authenticating Harmony and IFTTT you'll be able to create recipes triggering an Activity from any of your Harmony hub‑based products. Activities from non-hub based products will not be listed. If you have multiple Harmony hub‑based products then all Activities will be displayed in a single list.

Note: If you have identical Activity names across two of your Harmony hub‑based products then both will be listed. You'll have to try creating a recipe in order to determine which Harmony hub‑based product the Activity is associated with.

Information Harmony shares with IFTTT

Harmony only reveals a list of your Activities, plus a unique token that authenticates IFTTT to start and stop these Activities. IFTTT does not have access to your name, email address, nor the devices in your Harmony Account.

My Activity includes a smart lock device

For security purposes, Harmony doesn't allow third party appications to control smart lock devices (e.g., August Smart Lock). This includes triggering Activities which include a smart lock device. Therefore, triggering an Activity that contains a smart lock device is not possible.
