Not At Home? Amazon Wants To Come In And Drop Off Packages

Not At Home? Amazon Wants To Come In And Drop Off Packages”

Members can also grant home access to friends, family and others using the Amazon Key app. The online retailer said that Amazon Key will be launching in the US for Amazon Prime members.

To participate, you must buy a $250 security kit from Amazon. CloudCam lets the customers view a live streaming of the complete process on Amazon's Fire tablet or other voice-activated echo devices.

And while the service sounds cool enough to some.

The camera then streams video to the customer who remotely can watch the in-home delivery take place.

Kwikset®, the number one selling residential door hardware brand in the US has teamed up with Amazon to offer renters and homeowners two smart lock solutions to choose from when purchasing an Amazon Key In-Home Kit.

The Cloud Cam is a security camera. The service can also be used to allow out-of-town guests into the house. Each time a delivery driver requests access to a customer's home, the company said it verifies that the correct driver is at the right address, at the intended time, through an encrypted authentication process. No special codes or keys are given to the driver. The company's unwavering commitment to meeting homeowners' needs has inspired its innovative lock portfolio that includes patented SmartKey Security™ deadbolts, keyless entry combination locks, connected home technology, first-to-market electronic lock, Kevo™, door hardware with Microban® antimicrobial product protection and a wide variety of styles and finishes. If a courier somehow can't get inside, the deliveries will be left outside.

I don't want strangers coming into my home, and I don't want Amazon-controlled cameras installed on my property. And the alternative, in many cases, is risking the possibility of someone stealing a package from your doorstep. When the delivery driver shows up, they'll use a scanner to unlock your front door and leave your items inside before re-locking the door and taking off.

To alleviate these concerns, Amazon has you covered.

Butler was pretty adamant in her rejection of the very idea of opening her home to a stranger delivering a package, but after explaining how Amazon says it will work, she's all for it.
