Make helpers available to voice assistants?

Hi there,

as far as I can tell, it’s not possible to make helpers or template sensors available to voice assistants. They simply don’t appear in the list of available entities.
Am I missing something or ist there a workaround?


I think that most helpers and template sensors can be available to voice assistants - as long as they have a unique id. Helpers defined in the UI and Template sensors can have this id. Some sensors configured in yaml and some entities created by integrations don’t have this id. It’s a small propotion. Hopefully this will improve.

I’m sorry, I seem to have used the UI in the wrong way. Now, it works just fine.
