Not at home? Amazon wants to come in and drop off packages

Not at home? Amazon wants to come in and drop off packages

So she orchestrates the preparations remotely-using the Amazon Key app on her phone to let in a cleaning crew and a courier delivering her mom's present.

Amazon announced their newest product, "Amazon Key", on Wednesday, Oct. 25th.

A new service from Amazon will protect your packages from porch pirates.

Prime customers will then select "Amazon Key" delivery at checkout. The camera has night vision, so you can tell if it's panic room time or just your friendly neighbourhood Amazon delivery person leaving the next Mario game inside your house.




"Amazon Key in-home deliveries are carried out by some of the same professional drivers who you trust to deliver your Amazon orders today", the company says. Check out some reactions from Twitter users about Amazon Key. It is a smart lock and security camera system that allows delivery people-and anyone else you approve-to enter your home even when you're not there. Using a new Amazon device, the Cloud Cam, the entire delivery will be live-streamed to the customer's devices and also sent as a video snippet. The company will offer free in-home installation, but says it's simple enough for customers to install themselves. "You'll be notified any time your guest locks or unlocks your door", Amazon said in an online press release. The proper package tag then will unlock the door and allow the carrier to place the package inside.

Using a list that appears on the app, the delivery person is first instructed to knock on the door or ring the doorbell.

Reuters reports Key systems will be available to Amazon Prime members in 37 locations nationwide starting in November 8, but New Orleans is not yet on the list.
