On March 31st, 2015, Amazon launched the Amazon Dash button in an attempt to change the paradigm by which we regularly purchase consumables.
August 10th, Ted Benson publishes details for a fairly involved Amazon button hack on medium.com
August 26th , A coworker brings one in to work, throws it on my desk, and I explode in excitement. Unaware of what it was, and the work done by Ted, I set foot on writing my own exploit.
September 1st, With a successful working exploit in my toolbox, I finished writing a pairing procedure for the button and host computer as well as implemented a rudimentary ability to handle multiple buttons with ease.
Wanna use your Amazon Dash Button for things other than buying stuff? Check out this program that will change your world!
Daemon Version 4.0 is now up and running! As per the old update, this ible will not be updated to reflect the new features. Visit the GitHub for instructions on how to use the latest features!
Also, Windows Defender flags my program for some reason. False positive obviously. A report has already been submitted to Microsoft for review. If you don't trust the EXE, review and run directly from the source;) that's the beauty of open source software!
GitHub files have been updated, program is now open source under the Creative Commons License, newer daemon and Discovery program available! A few things have changed and the program should work with all of the newer buttons, but I've decided not to update this ible yet. Gonna make some bigger changes and write a second ible for it!
