Intent Script

The intent_script integration allows users to configure actions and responses to intents. Intents can be fired by any integration that supports it. Examples are Alexa (Amazon Echo), Dialogflow (Google Assistant) and Snips.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  GetTemperature:  # Intent type
      text: We have {{ states.sensor.temperature }} degrees
      service: notify.notify
        message: Hello from an intent!
