Take note of your devices Model ID as well as the associated Slot IDs.

Login With Amazon and Authorization Code Grant

To simplify the process, we’re skipping the customer facing app and just hack our registration. Make sure you install postman.

here’s the message to send<CLIENTID>&scope=dash%3Areplenish&scope_data=%7B%22dash%3Areplenish%22%3A%7B%22device_model%22%3A%22<DEVICEMODEL>%22%2C%22serial%22%3A%22<DEVICENAME>%22%2C%20%22is_test_device%22%3A%22true%22%7D%7Dtest&response_type=code&

replace these:

<CLIENTID> : amazon Client ID like 
<DEVICEMODEL> is the device model, in my case I named it WalabotPi3
<DEVICENAME> is the name of device, I named it arduino123.

It’s currently setup as a test device so it won’t order. Go thru the process of selecting items for each slots. Complete it.

After that, In the address bar it would look something like this.<CODE>&scope=dash%3Areplenish

jot down the code, you will use it to setup device. code looks something like “ANdNAVhyhqirUelHGEHA”


I cloned this repo, modified AmazonTokens.h file

#define client_id "amzn1.application-oa2-client.c0a2100c1af289b1bf4011c71f6029b3"
#define client_secret "ec48483c54c34a23a71aa8ccb2742902f7d3d00c2dd78fc5ac404eef0111e485"
#define redirect_uri ""

Zipped up the folder then installed the library in Arduino

Then open this example File>>Examples>>AmazonDRS>>authCodeGran and modify auth_code

#define auth_code "ANNnZjoWYoEIhEJrtLqL";

After running the authCodeGrant, look at the output on serial port. It will return something like this

refresh token = "Atzr|IwEBILdfysz66E9sRHsUobHgfh1X_h-esnBfcCdYjdcCfhGRkZqXujzXSN_3a8yqj5btX1B6NgbrmEX6wax_wmJ7Sgaaa39GbR-6hjDt_tHpKsFXPGwnIhy-14CWuE4oeYDWG4pCvQ4JEMKk2DiAsuwlUtoOVwaEOif1gWErh5rswCJ8mRhaXQ7SJhZB0CWYHm_ZA_PY8xTTVTUcZFqP7iz8kBw5QGDePyOb8NvJvSuBYYkwRQTj-qrytfdcHwMWOJc5QdoyPFpmchSfsMUpMqjDmwVPBfFzb0xZWYKxdUerSeKV1VVlS4Bwl2j-4gHnjHGohUsxau4Bn9SfG9McP-7RqD9Vmk3g--rsfACQ-uVLCJSJ29sBEMNkA5sxh9E9fpTwEw166WY-xBfYa_XB9aAU3n6Fn2yFM0I7ZpPIY1fy0gkdYkFOFD0uAOdoTFDxGXwbBWE";

Which is the refresh token for your device. Now go back and edit AmazonTokens.h at the Arduino Library Folder and change refresh token and authorization_grant_code

static String refresh_token = "Atzr|IwEBIIKDkzgMa5g7O0R1mLZZ6YZo-A1Ae5Ffj6wmV_rPbmAI0oixxTff8g3PN6MrOIEQpB9o_6BlDjiR6gkfRS_82Wp_0GWWvTrtYehcFJ8iKjuqf8n1ff9OrdHQU1_5nW_5Hf5loeIQ88TGazK2wy18UmOXOz1lbl9FDvWVQZl4t_6ggzDfMTVupvNr_ZtDrPm72auzoJIkGmGIM4S1RUw-Ru8X4q-UlzzYYfvRSJnPLAUTM3tTOEkv5e33SzExAaHl0tF22drRqvR1dEVlR_Zzw_IZ-1hzhIAvHrJs22K5dSEmkJKN7g8sD1tUKkn-ErMJhJrMehmvjwanF_O141Z5bVokmOLwiQKq_AYKGz8mJ0WPjBNQ3TbZ1g-3Xp-LqeMcKViNImcl1-_K89K5rupwAh-OmIPP5VhBArvhdeqEnreNU7LVLNoHvvyFB5ypwKQsHLe8";
static String authorization_grant_code = "ANNnZjoWYoEIhEJrtLqL";


The hardware is enclosed in a 3D printed enclosure big enough to fit an Arduino Uno sized microcontroller with Wifi Shield. Lots of different hardware can be used. In this case we powered the device with a MKR1000 Arduino microcontroller. The MKR1000 has built in WiFi.

The enclosure is 3d printed, the STL and SketchUp files can be found below for download.



Here’s the code. Assign your wifi credentials.

char ssid[] = "XXXXXXXX"; //  your network SSID (name) 
char pass[] = "XXXXXXXX";    // your network password (use for WPA, or use as key for WEP) 

Assign the SlotID and Slot Number

#define slotNumber 1 //This will vary for multi slot devices - dash buttons typically only serve one product/slot 
static String slotStatus = "true"; //boolean which depicts if slot is available for replenishment 
static String slotId = "e2d8d2a3-ecf3-4532-bc02-a1bbb776bdf8";     //unique slot id ex: 0a5038b7-7609-4b81-b87e-3e291f386324 

Push the code to the Device. Watch the serial monitor, you’ll see something like this…
