Making the Amazon Dash button really work
Raspberry pi, install:
sudo apt-get install python-scapy tcpdump
Nice theres a scapy python in the apt repository Also had to install tcpdump.
Here's my update, apparently more recent Amazon software configures the Dash button with a dhcp address, so the psrc='0.0.0.0' fails.
My hacky solution:
Update 2018: Apparently somebody deprecated something and the above no longer works. An exceptionally crude hack is to just ping the various buttons, when they go on-line the ping will succeed and you can trigger something. Yucky but works?
