Amazon Key offers package delivery, inside your home

Amazon Key offers package delivery, inside your home

Amazon Key is a new service for Prime members that lets you get packages delivered into your home without you being there. For the time being, Amazon will only allow its own delivery people to make the in-home drop-offs, but there are plans to extend the Key to other service providers like cleaners, house sitters, and dog walkers.

The service uses a kit, that start at $249.99, which includes an Amazon security camera, the Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock.

Prime customers will then select "Amazon Key" delivery at checkout.

Amazon Key deliveries will only be from Amazon, not other shipping services or the U.S. Postal Service.

The startup cost to use the otherwise free in-home delivery system may dissuade some users.

"Amazon verifies the delivery driver through an authentication process, turns on Cloud Cam to record, then grants access for the driver to deliver your package just inside your front door".

When the delivery person arrives, the app sends the customer another note saying the delivery person is at the door.

The service also allows customers to set the frequency and length of time for friends and family to access their home using the smart lock.

Amazon Key launches in a number of cities in the United States, but if it's successful it's easy to see it coming to the UK.

Amazon says customers should not worry about the safety of their home.

Amazon says the system will be made available on November 8 in 37 cities, including Atlanta, Cleveland and Denver.

But Amazon seems to be hoping that you won't give privacy a second thought here. Prime customers can input their ZIP code on the Amazon Key in-home kit product page to see if they live in a supported area and preorder the Key hardware kit.
