Amazon today announced a bevy of new connected devices now apart of its Dash Replenishment program, allowing customers to automatically order everything from vitamins to dog treats.
Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) leverages sensors in a wide range of devices to detect when new supplies need to be ordered, triggering an automatic purchase and order from Amazon, based on the user’s settings.
New brands include companies like AESOP-Works, which sells a smart device that keeps track of when medicines and vitamins need to be consumed — with Dash, supplies are automatically reordered when they run low. There’s also GE Appliances’ Wi-Fi connected dryers and dishwashers, which will soon enable automated reordering of dryer fabric softener sheets and dishwasher detergent packs.
Other brands now in the Dash program include: Behmor, JP Certified, Neato Robotics, Perfect Company, Petcube, simplehuman, SmartThings, The Hershey Company and Vivint.
Previously-announced brands include August, Brita, Brother, Cleverpet, Whirlpool, Samsung, and others.
Amazon also announced today that developers can use a new interface to get a device or service integrated with DRS, removing the need to build a separate back-end infrastructure for authentication, payment systems, etc.
DRS is a companion project to the Amazon Dash button, which lets consumers press the button to trigger a new order for whichever product (laundry detergent, Mac & Cheese, etc.) is associated with that button.
