Filtrete Smart Air Filters, paired with the Filtrete Smart App and Amazon Dash Replenishment, take the guesswork out of when to change your air filters and what size and type to purchase. The filters contain a Bluetooth-enabled pressure sensor that, when paired with the app, allows customers to track filter life based on airflow and usage, not just time. With Dash Replenishment, customers can have new filters automatically reordered and delivered right to their door the moment before a replacement is needed.
To get started, simply set up Dash Replenishment through the Filtrete Smart App. The Filtrete Smart App tracks filter lifespan, type and size, and Dash Replenishment will automatically reorder the correct product when the life of their filter reaches 10%.
Smart Air Filter 2-packs start at $43.98 on Amazon.com.
