Your next printer will order ink automatically from Amazon.
Amazon today announced the first devices available with Amazon Dash Replenishment, including select Brother printers, a GE washer, and the Gmate SMART blood glucose monitor.
Amazon's Dash Replenishment Service enables connected devices to automatically order physical goods from Amazon when supplies are running low.
For example, a Brother printer can order toner or ink when it’s needed. Customers who already own a compatible Brother printer can start taking advantage of Dash Replenishment immediately, and the General Electric washer and Gmate device will be ready by the end of the month. There is no need to buy a new device. Owners have to only sign up to activate Amazon Dash Replenishment.
Additionally, new brands and devices have joined Amazon's Dash Replenishment program, including Purell soap and hand sanitizer and the Whirlpool Smart Dishwasher. Brands that want to incorporate Dash Replenishment Service into their connected devices can now easily access the APIs to start an integration.
“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—customers simply activate Dash Replenishment when they are setting up their connected device and then rely on Amazon to automatically deliver those everyday essentials,” said Daniel Rausch, Director, Amazon Devices. "It’s exciting to make Dash Replenishment a reality—customers can start taking advantage of the service today and we will continue to launch and add new devices to the program this year.”
Devices available with Dash Replenishment include compatible Brother connected printers that measure toner or ink levels. Dash Replenishment enables automatic ordering so that customers always have the supplies they need to print. Customers can sign up for Dash Replenishment via Brother’s website when setting up their compatible printers.
“We are excited to work with the Amazon Dash Replenishment Service, and be a part of its official launch,” said Don Cummins, SVP Marketing, Brother. “Brother has over 45 models immediately compatible with Amazon Dash Replenishment, making it easy for our users to automatically have their ink or toner replenished when they need it.”
GE’s washer with Smart Dispense technology stores detergent and automatically dispenses the right amount for each load so customers don’t have to worry about it. With Dash Replenishment, customers use the associated app to set their preferred preorder level and Amazon delivers detergent when supply is running low.
Gmate’s SMART Blood Glucose Meter is a device that connects to a smartphone to make testing blood sugar easy and convenient. With Dash Replenishment, testing strips and lancets are automatically ordered when needed so customers always have the critical supplies they need to stay in good health.
Amazon has already announced dozens of other connected devices that will also integrate Dash Replenishment Service, including devices from Samsung, Brita, Whirlpool, August, Oster, Obe, Petnet, Clever Pet, Sutro, Thync, and Sealed Air. Today, the Amazon added Purell and Whirlpool.
Amazon Dash Replenishment is the natural evolution of the Amazon Dash Button. Amazon is getting closer to the often demod fridge that orders automatically the things that run out for real.
