New Bosch and Siemens dishwashers order detergent from Amazon when they run low
Bosch and Siemens’s latest dishwashers will automatically order more detergent from Amazon when they are running low.
The company’s newest Wi-Fi connected dishwasher appliances – the Bosch Series 6 and Series 8, and Siemens iQ500 and iQ700 – are the latest to adopt Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Programme, which uses sensors to inform the online retail giant when you need a refill and orders them for you.
Customers link up their Amazon account to their appliance and the order is processed and dispatched without them needing to intervene.
“By integrating Dash Replenishment into our Home Connect mobile app, owners of our range of Wi-Fi-enabled, connected dishwashers can choose to automate re-ordering detergent so running out becomes a thing of the past and there’s less shopping to carry home,” said Andrew Jones, marketing director of BSH Home Appliances.
Dash Replenishment, which first launched in 2016, works on a number of appliances, including printers. KYOCERA has announced that its latest printers will reorder ink and toner via Amazon whenever they are low.
Candy, Haier, Hoover and Sharp are already developing new washing machines that re-order laundry detergent and fabric softener for customers.
Meanwhile, Toshiba will be the first brand in the UK to release a TV remote control that automatically re-orders batteries.
