Amazon selling [sold out] programming Dash Buttons

It looks Amazon has taken notice of all the Dash hacking interest and produced a very limited run of programmable Dash Buttons.

The big problems are:

  • Already sold out and it is unknown if they will make more
  • It requires an AWS account and all of the logic runs on Amazon’s cloud so if you are a local only HA implementer this is probably not a good choice
  • I’ve no idea if it is more responsive than the known hacks (script on dd-wrt router, ARP sniffing, etc).

It might be something some of you may want to watch though.
