Getting Started

Everything you need to know to get started with Formant.


    A command is a directive sent to the device in order for it to perform a specific task. One can use Formant's built-in commands (available by default) or create custom commands of their own (using Formant APIs). Commands may be used to trigger data ingestion, run scripts, or a variety of other, similar behaviors. 

    A command includes the following information:

    • Command definition, which determines what behavior to invoke on the device
    • Parameters created by the administrator when defining the command, or by the user when issuing the command
