YOU MUST install all areas of EchoSistant, including the intent file and the utterances, along with the smartapp code and the Lambda code for this upgrade to be successful!
EchoSistant is now a single SmartApp; it no longer has a parent/child code base.
Updates and Other additions to this new version include:
- Bug Fixes/Optimizations - logic errors, misspellings, etc…
- Continued commands after sending messages, set per profile
- Repeat Last message with continued commands, set per profile

This smart app is for communication within your Home Automation Environment. It is not for HA Control or for HA Status/report inquiries. There are other very powerful and diverse smartapps for those functions. EchoSistant is designed to work with those apps to bring your HA experience full circle.
We hope you enjoy our new version of EchoSistant and we look forward to your feedback.
