Amazon Partnerships Mean Automated Pool Sensors Meet Automatic Chemical Ordering

Amazon has been making all kinds of headlines lately with its Dash Replenishment Service and Alexa voice recognition devices.

Already the king of convenience when it comes to shopping for everyday needs—and special once in awhile items, too—Amazon's introduction of these technologies makes it even easier for people to get the things they need and want delivered straight to their door, without any hassle or fuss.

Dash Replenishment Service (DRS)

Amazon introduced Dash buttons last year, enabling consumers to place orders for laundry detergent and other frequently-ordered commodities with just a push of a button. Their Dash Replenishment Service takes Dash convenience even further, allowing Internet-connected devices and appliances to place orders for items whenever the devices sense that levels are running low. 

Coffee machines that know when you need more pods communicate directly with Amazon, placing an order before you run out so the caffeine can flow uninterrupted. Printers detect low ink levels and tell Amazon to shop the right cartridge for your printer without you needing to look up and enter specific make and model information. 

And thanks to Sutro's partnership, your automated pool chemical sensor no longer stops at telling you what chemicals you need to order—it can order them for you the moment they're needed, ensuring they're on hand when you need to give your pool or hot tub a dose. It's pool maintenance made as convenient and hands-free as possible—the era of the smartpool is finally here.

Alexa and Echo for Ordering and More

Sutro is also part of Amazon's Alexa-based ordering system, which allows you to place orders for anything you need simply by talking. The most convenient way to use Alexa is with the Amazon echo device—a Wi-Fi connected speaker, microphone, and mini computer that can act as a virtual assistant in your home.

Not only does the Alexa/Echo combo allow you to place Amazon orders using only your voice, but it can also provide news updates, look up facts and figures, schedule appointments and give you reminders, and a whole lot more. With groundbreaking voice recognition and artificial-almost-intelligence, Alexa is the leader in next-generation smarthome—and smartpool—technology, and Sutro is proud to be among Amazon's first partners in this innovation. 

Convenience, Accessibility, and Efficiency

Technology has always promised more convenience and greater efficiency, but it's rarely been accessible at all, and it frequently fails to live up to its promise. We have more, but we also spend  more hours maintaining it. These new "smart" technologies represent real time savings, and make it possible for everyone to enjoy the luxury of an intelligent system to take over many repetitive tasks. It's an exciting future to be apart of—and a great time to own a pool!
