Amazon Dash Baby Monitoring Hack

Check out Ted Benson’s great Amazon Dash hack to use the device for logging baby activity to a spreadsheet.  Ted investigated how the Dash works and found he can detect button presses by watching for the Dash to turn on and join his WiFi network.  This is a clever hack since the Dash doesn’t need to be taken apart and reprogrammed, instead a script running on a computer watches for the Dash to join the network before it takes action.  The post goes into a lot of great detail about how to use Scapy to detect network traffic from the Dash and Magic Form to update the spreadsheet.  Awesome hack!

If you’re interesting in going a little deeper with Dash hacking be sure to check out the guide on reprogramming the Dash CPU right here on Adafruit’s learning system too.
