Amazon just announced the first Amazon Dash Replenishment devices are now available. These include select Brother printers, a GE washer, and the Gmate SMART blood glucose monitor.

If your'e unfamiliar with the service, it lets connected devices automatically order physical goods from Amazon when supplies get low. Printers can order more toner or ink, for example.

The program also now includes new brands and devices including Purell soap and hand sanitizer and the Whirlpool Smart Dishwasher.

“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 for 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.”

“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.”

Brands that want to incorporate the service into their own connected devices now have access to APIs to integrate accordingly.

GE, August, Gmate, Obe, Oster, Petnet, CleverPet, Samsung, Sutro, Thync, and Sealed Air were announced as partners back in the fall.
