Amazon Key In-Home Package Delivery Creeps Out Twitter Reactions

Amazon Key seems ideal for customers who are out most of the day and can not be home to accept packages or those who often experience package theft.

Once the kit is installed, customers can select an in-home delivery option at checkout. Just say, "Alexa, show me the [camera name]" to easily see the feed from anywhere in the house.

This system is another way Amazon is making it easier for customers to receive packages quickly and securely. Amazon will even provide videos of the delivery service after the fact. Amazon Business customers also enjoy a variety of benefits, including business-only pricing and selection, a multi-seller marketplace, approval workflow, purchasing system integrations, payment solutions and dedicated customer support.

Walmart started testing a similar program in September with a focus on groceries. Other than deliveries, the administration can be utilized to let in visitors and, in the coming months, will give clients a chance to plan in-home visits from more than 1,200 organizations on Amazon Home Services, including housekeepers and dog walkers.

Amazon Key in-home deliveries are carried out by some of the same professional drivers who you trust to deliver your Amazon orders today.

"This state-of-the-art technology doesn't simply replace a key with a digital passcode", according to the press release. Each time a delivery driver requests access to a customer's home, Amazon verifies that the correct driver is at the right address, at the intended time, through an encrypted authentication process. Couriers will be able to unlock front doors after they have scanned the package to confirm its arrival. The entire process is done without a key or code - and the entire delivery is recorded on a camera that uploads to the cloud. And, for added peace of mind, in-home delivery is backed by Amazon's Happiness Guarantee.

Amazon wants the key to your house.

The idea of letting delivery people place packages inside unattended homes may sound insane to some customers but Amazon is trying to let everyone know that it could be watched as it happens.

The e-commerce and cloud behemoth on Wednesday introduced Amazon Key, a service that allows Prime members in certain cities to surveil and remotely open their homes.
