Now a days, we hear a lot about automation, robotics, IoT, cloud services, digital transformation.  All these terms are not easy even for a techy guy to digest then how can we expect a common man to understand them. For a common man, its just another technological advancement happening in the background. Amazon gave it a thought and has brought the complexity out of one their innovations which is Amazon Dash – IoT Button.

IoT Button – Easy way to order stuff

Amazon Dash – Iot Button is so simple and easy to understand, program and use that a common man can use it with maximum utilization. It is one such small IoT device which can assist you in remembering things which we usually forget. The most common use depicted by Amazon is to order on Amazon.com through this button. You can put this button close to your washing machine and use it to order consumables related to it. Similarly, it will be for kitchen and office stuff also. I would say that these are easy things to consider for such an innovation.

Innovative ways to use Amazon Dash

One of the most important use which I think of it as a safety switch. Anybody can carry it along with himself/herself and press it in case of any adversity to send message to the dear ones. This can be very useful for people who needs to travel late night or to far off places. You might not have a chance sometimes to give a call to your loved ones but this button can be savior in such cases. It can also be used by elderly people to alert their loved ones in case of emergency.

Another innovative use of this button could be to call a waiter at a restaurant. Instead, the waiter keeps on watching the customer at all times for a call, a button placed on the table can be utilized to order. There have been innovations where iPad is being used to order stuff from the table but that takes away the simplicity out of the restaurant. Having IoT button will keep it simple and away from digital influence.

I like the way Amazon is leading the industry with its innovative products. These innovations are the key for them to become no. 1.
