Is there a way to configure it to send the person that triggered the event or specify a regex group to send the message to? 

When entering the room

Hi Tony - unfortunately Botler doesn't support sending 1-1 messages due to limitations in the HipChat API (basically, it doesn't have a user principal with which the message can be sent). I believe the code for Botler is public, however, so it might be possible to add functionality to get close to the behavior you're looking for. The repository can be found at
