Back in November 2017, AT&T announced a new product called the LTE-M button, which lets users place an order online or send an alert with one click.
It sounds a bit like Amazon’s Dash buttons, branded chunk of plastics that you can use to refresh the supply of your products with just one click. Besides, it’s powered by Amazon Web Services’ Internet of Things 1-click service.
Designed for businesses
Unlike Amazon dash buttons, LTE-M button isn’t pre-programmed, because it’s designed for businesses, not for individual customers. Companies can program this device to manage the tasks that fulfill their needs.
No need of Wi-Fi
Although it runs by AWS, it’s connected to AT&T’s LTE-M network. It means the device doesn’t need an internet connection to work. It can be customized for ordering specific products, asking for feedback or generating alerts in a public place where Wi-Fi isn’t an option.
LTE-M buttons are now available for the initial price of $29.99 each, which will be $35 after 5,000 are sold. The LTE-M connection is free for first 1,500 clicks or three years, whichever comes first.
