Amazon is rolling out Amazon Dash in the UK. This is a button which you set up to order anything off Amazon when pressed. The buttons are £4.99, which reduces to £0 when used, but if you choose the 3-5 day delivery option, you still get £1 credit for Amazon digital purchases.

Need three Dash buttons? Make three separate orders and check 3-5 day delivery on each one.

Notes: The buttons only become £0 when first used, but if I understand correctly they can be set up to order anything at all on Amazon.

It's only specific products/brands isn't it? Each Dash button has a brand name on it.

This is kind of stupid imo
I prefer to check price first before I reorder

I can just see people with the Durex one stuck by their bed. Talk about classy.

Not sure why this isn't hot? The concept is fantastic!

what a silly idea

A license to charge whatever the hell they like for products and dupe you into not bothering to check...

Yeh, fantastically ridiculous.

I like the concept, but when I checked the prices, Amazon were more expensive on some items. I suppose you're paying for the convenience, but it's not for me.

I agree with previous comments. Some of amazons price fluctuations are horrendous. Would never buy from amazon without checking the price !!

The concept is fantastic... for Amazon...
All these concepts have one real purpose... to part you from your money

Lots of other uses for these

Indeed there are ..... dashbuttondudes.com/blo…cks

Just to note though that they have a soldered AAA battery which apparently works for 1000 presses and can't be replaced. Personally I think there should be a law against such WEEE waste myself. However if you are going to rip it apart then that doesn't really matter.

I haven't quite found out how quick they are though as I want to use one to control a remote socket and would prefer it to be near instant.

To be fair, if they're likely to put any of the buttons next to their beds, it'll be the Kleenex one .

Have they got a mystery button? that way the drooling fools who use these could order a random product without knowing the price

Wish amazon would stop f*cking about with these little gadgets and just officially release the Echo in the UK. Having to bodge it with a raspberry pi isn't the same.

oO Dash 'Everyday Essentials' include NERF & Play-Doh haha.

Looks like they closed the loophole. "No rush" delivery is no longer available. Maybe it will happen again in the future. I can see they're running short of stock at the moment.

Wow. I just looked through the comments. Free money is voted -187 cold these days! Amazing!

I bet manufacturers have to pay to have branded Dash buttons too... Nice little earner for Amazon.

It is more than likely that this new release has an alkaline battery and features a different chipset, in addition to BLE.



I don't have any right now but mine will be turning up tomorrow. I've just been reading around the internet to see whats possible and its limitations and the 1000 press limitation was from an article on the programmable version of these for ~$20 in the US which makes them less attractive.

I can see more IoT buttons become available with as we have the kickstarter flic at $34 each and LG have just launched some at $39 but you need a bridge, so for $99 you get 2 buttons and a bridge! All way too expensive in my opinion.

I seem to remember Amazon were doing the dash buttons for $0.99 on a recent prime day in the US so who knows we might see that soon over here.

No rush delivery free £1 credit is still available on most of the dash buttons. Exceptions are Finish/Gillette/WilkinsonSword. Hot for me, ordered several as I can get my £4.99 back on a product I want and free £1 digital credit per button. I don't need to use if prices go stupid in future. Double bonus.

Although anonimousse appears to have disappeared, the model no. is JK29LP and appears to have bluetooth for the setup. Official config was very simple and I now have 45 bog rolls and 114 washing pods turning up tomorrow and they include the £4.99 discount on each order. Deactivation / returning to factory defaults is simple as well.

Thanks for the reply - much appreciated. The JK29LP seems to have the … Thanks for the reply - much appreciated. The JK29LP seems to have the holder for a removable battery and contains the newer Atmel chipset and BLE is a bonus. I have one on back order and once the credit is used, will try to re-appropriate it as a door-bell with IFTTT or something more interesting and useful ;--))



I'd be interested in how you get on as well. Currently I have some Orvibo s20 remote sockets that I'm planning on plugging in lamps to and controlling via a python script running on a Pi along with a php web app (all other people's work). I have also configured lirc to allow me to control them via an IR remote of my choice. So I should be able to control these via command line on the Pi, cron job on the Pi, IR remote, web app (a bit flakey) and I want to add one of these buttons next to the lamp as well. That's the theory just got to make it work in practice oh and stop the sockets phoning home to china!
