      • Thanks Jon... Can't believe I missed that.

        That being said, redoing my dev skill with "Leena" doesn't work when I tell it instructions to do. However, if I say tell Leena and just wait, it does come back with "You've started a session with your homeseer - what would you like?". Using the default HS skill works without issue. I thought it might need voice training and re-did that, but still nothing. I may try a different name...
        Very weird considering it worked without issue literally for a year....

        • I was wondering if the procedure in the original post can be updated to reflect the change in creating a custom skill. Amazon has totally revamped their custom skill creation pages.

          • Where can I see my custom skill in the alexa account ?

            I have a few issues with my Alexas. I had to unlink my Homeseer skill v3 and relink. As I am still having issues, I want to make sure not to accidentially disable my custom skill. Or if I (or amazon) do, I want to know how to relink it...
            Looking at my alexa app, I can see a Michaels Alexa Homeseer plug in. Its offline, and set to a US address (I'm in the UK). But could that be the custom skill ?
            The Alexa helper is working fine on 2 of my Alexas, but I am having issues with a Echo 2 showing as offline and not being linked to Homeseer when queried. I am trying to resolve this with amazon but so far no luck... just want to avoid loosing the voice control on the other 2 working Alexas...

            • As I am interested in using Jon00's helper script I thought I would have a go at building this skill.
              The development screens seem to bear little resembalnce to the tutorial at the beginning of this thread. Is it me or have Amazon changed everything?

              • The change in the dev skill process has been mentioned before. I'm not going to touch mine in fear of losing a working skill. If you do figure it out, please post the solution. You could also try sending a PM to Sgt. Shultz

                • How are you guys now getting around the "literal" issue when creating a custom development skill?
