Having the same issue. I have a new Echo registered under my wife?s profile and have added the Vera skill but it doesn?t work. What was the solution?

You pinged this thread at exactly the right time! I'm just adding some more devices to Vera during the holiday. The trick is this: For each *profile* used on an Amazon device, you need to have a different Vera login.

Example: I have 5 Echo devices in the house. 4 of them use my Amazon profile, 1 of them uses my daughter's profile. I have my admin login for Vera that I can use with the Vera skill on all 4 of "my" Echo devices. I also created a basic user login on my Vera for my daughter. I then used this secondary login on her Echo device where the Vera skill was installed.

This makes it all work for me.

Caveat: If you try using the same Vera login credentials on different Amazon profiles, only the last one will work. Must be a different Vera login per Amazon profile (regardless of number of devices).

Hope this makes sense.
