AT&T has launched a new product called the LTE-M programmable button that organizations can deploy to enable clients to place orders or send alerts.
The LTE-M button isn't intended for shoppers, but for organizations: it can be modified and issued with a custom label — and requested in amounts of 500. AT&T says that each button will work for up to 1,500 clicks or for a long duration of three years.
The gadget sounds somewhat like Amazon's Dash buttons and clarifies that the product keeps running on Amazon Web Services' Internet of Things 1-Click service.
In any case, dissimilar to the Dash buttons, AT&T's offerings connect to the carrier’s LTE-M network, and can be customized for whatever an organization needs, for example, soliciting feedback out in the open places, ordering specific products, or generating alerts for things like junk jars or oil tanks that need servicing, and more.
The organization reported the gadgets back in November 2017, but they're currently available at the underlying cost of $29.99 each (it'll bounce to $35 after 5,000 is sold).
