Running low? You’ll never know.
Amazon on Tuesday announced the availability of the first smart devices compatible with its auto-order service, Amazon Dash Replenishment.
According to Amazon, the service allows compatible smart devices to automatically order necessary supplies from the online retailer when stock is running low. The service allows consumers to select their preorder preferences ahead of time, and the device notifies Amazon to send replacements before supplies run out.
Among the first devices to utilize the service will be select Brother printers, a GE washer and the Gmate SMART blood glucose monitor. Purell soap and the Whirlpool Smart Dishwasher have also joined the program to incorporate the service into their product offerings. Compatible devices from Samsung, Brita, Whirlpool, August, Oster, Obe, Petnet, Clever Pet, Sutro, Thync and Sealed Air are also expected.
“With Amazon Dash Replenishment, we want to make customers’ lives even easier so they won’t run out of items like laundry detergent, pet food or printer ink again,” said Amazon Devices director Daniel Rausch. “Customers simply activate Dash Replenishment when they are setting up their connected device and then rely on Amazon to automatically deliver those everyday essentials.”
Rausch said the service will be available to consumers starting immediately and Amazon expects to add new devices to the program throughout the year.
According to Tuesday’s press release, the Dash Replenishment APIs are available for integration into any device that can connect to the internet. The appropriate code is available on Amazon’s website.
