Mimolite signal input question / help

I installed and configured a Mimolite and am trying to figure out how to get the signal input to behave. Mostly for a proof of concept, but now I want to understand how this works.

I can control the device on/off via the Vera UI.

However, when flipping the wall switch, it won’t turn on/off.

I noticed that when I installed the Mimolite plugin, it also installed a device called “Mimo #5 binary sen” which appears as a motion sensor. Flipping the wall switch on/off makes that device show as tripped/not tripped. But it is as if there’s nothing else happening.

Picture attached.
