Amazon to launch in-home delivery service

, , Leave a comment


Amazon wants to come inside your home when you’re out — but it’s not as creepy as it sounds. The company is launching a program called
Amazon Key in which Prime members in certain cities can have packages delivered inside
their front doors. Starting at $250, members can buy the Amazon
Key In-Home Kit, which comes with a special security camera, smart lock and control app. The gadgets are required for the service. Once everything is installed, members can
choose how they want their items delivered and get a notification on delivery day. If they’ve got security concerns, they can
also watch everything from their phones. Walmart started testing a similar program
in September with a focus on groceries. The company teamed up with security company
August Home to make grocery and other shopping more convenient. Amazon’s program is only available in 37 cities
and some surrounding areas right now, but the e-commerce giant says it plans to expand.
