Registering Sentences


The conversation component handles incoming commands from the frontend and converts them to intents. It does this based on registered sentences.

As a component, you can register sentences with the conversation component to allow it to be remote controlled. Refer to named slots by putting the slot name between curly braces: {item}.

Example code:

@asyncio.coroutine
def async_setup(hass, config):
    hass.components.conversation.async_register('MyCoolIntent', [
        'I think that {object} is very cool',
        'Nothing is cooler than {object}'
    ])

If a sentence like “I think that beer is very cool” comes in, the conversation component will generate an intent of type MyCoolIntent and with 1 slot, named object and value beer.
