Amazon reportedly wants one-time access to your home for deliveries

Amazon reportedly wants one-time access to your home for deliveries”

(AMZN) is looking at ways to solve problems related to unattended delivery by considering delivering items directly to a customer's house or auto.

However it seems that Amazon might have come up with a couple of unique ways to deliver to homes and ensure that the packages aren't stolen.

Amazon is developing a smart doorbell device that would give delivery drivers one-time access to a person's home to drop off items, said two people familiar with the matter.

Phrame's product, which fits around a license plate, contains a secure box that will holds the keys to the auto. According to CNBC, Amazon is reportedly developing a smart doorbell and even considering a partnership with Phrame, a maker of license plate frames that can securely store vehicle keys.

The new initiatives are part of Amazon's effort to go beyond convenience and fix problems associated with unattended delivery. "Nothing makes shoppers more irate than missing a delivery".

The Seattle-based company is looking to develop in-home delivery via a smartphone-operated lock that permits delivery personnel one-time access to drop off the parcels, CNBC said, citing anonymous company sources. Amazon has been mulling these sort of concepts for years, too.

In September, Amazon rival Walmart announced its test of a store-to-fridge delivery program in Silicon Valley, whereby subscribers could have grocery items delivered to their homes.
