Welcome to amazon-dash’s documentation!

Amazon Dash buttons are sold by Amazon to purchase certain products from their store. The buttons are sold for $5/€5/£5 but Amazon gives you the money to spend on products. This project allows you to reprogram these buttons purchased “almost free” to do what you want. To use this project you need a linux computer (for example a Raspberry PI).


Since 2020 your buttons can be bricked in an update from Amazon servers. Go to Future of the project for more info.

To install amazon-dash, run these commands in your terminal:

$ pip install amazon_dash
$ sudo python -m amazon_dash.install
