The Dialogflow integrationIntegrations connect and integrate Home Assistant with your devices, services, and more. [Learn more] is designed to be used with the webhook integration of Dialogflow. After each phrase a user says, Dialogflow sends an action and parameters to the webhook.

To be able to receive messages from Dialogflow, your Home Assistant instance needs to be accessible from the web and you need to have the external URL configured. Dialogflow will return fallback answers if your server does not answer or takes too long (more than 5 seconds).

Dialogflow could be integrated with many popular messaging, virtual assistant and IoT platforms.

After the [Conversational Actions sunset on June 13, 2023](https://developers.google.com/assistant/ca-sunset), Dialogflow can no longer be integreated with Google Assistant

Using Dialogflow will be easy to create conversations like:

User: What is the temperature at home?

Bot: The temperature is 34 degrees

User: Turn on the light

Bot: In which room?

User: In the kitchen

Bot: Turning on kitchen light

To use this integration, you should define a conversation (intent) in Dialogflow, configure Home Assistant with the speech to return and, optionally, the action to execute.

Configuring your Dialogflow account

To get the webhook URL, go to the integrations page in the configuration screen and find “Dialogflow”. Click on “configure”. Follow the instructions on the screen.

  • Login with your Google account.
  • Click on “Create Agent”.
  • Select name, language (if you are planning to use Google Actions check their supported languages) and time zone.
  • Click “Save”.
  • Now go to “Fulfillment” (in the left menu).
  • Enable Webhook and set your Dialogflow webhook URL as the endpoint, e.g., https://myhome.duckdns.org/api/webhook/800b4cb4d27d078a8871656a90854a292651b20635685f8ea23ddb7a09e8b417
  • Click “Save”.
  • Create a new intent.
  • Below “User says” type one phrase that you, the user, will say to Dialogflow, e.g., What is the temperature at home?.
  • In “Action” enter an action name. This should match the name of an IntentScript within your Home Assistant configuration, e.g., in the example below “Temperature”.
  • In “Response” enter “Cannot connect to Home Assistant or it is taking to long” (fall back response).
  • At the bottom of the page, expand “Fulfillment” and check “Use webhook”.
  • Click “Save”.
  • At the top right of the screen where it says “Try it now…”, type, or say, the phrase you have previously defined and hit enter.
  • Dialogflow will now send a request to your Home Assistant instance and display the response.

The V1 API will be deprecated on October 23, 2019. If you are still using the V1 API, it is recommended to change your settings in Dialogflow to use the V2 API. No changes to your intents YAML configuration need to take place after upgrading to the V2 API. Change to the V2 API by clicking on the cog button here and then select the V2 API.

Take a look to “Integrations”, in the left menu, to configure third parties.

Configuring Home Assistant

When activated, the alexa integration will have Home Assistant’s native intent support handle the incoming intents. If you want to run actions based on intents, use the intent_script integration.
