Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was | Updates I International -

Ama­zon has an­nounced plans to launch Ama­zon Key, in which Prime mem­bers can ask for pack­ages to be dropped off in­doors. The ser­vice, which comes with a kit in­clud­ing a se­cu­rity cam­era and a com­pat­i­ble smart lock, will be launched on Novem­ber 8. Op­er­at­ing mainly as the ser­vice’s hub, the Cloud Cam re­ceives in­for­ma­tion about the courier’s de­liv­er­ies and, af­ter the bar code on the pack­age has been scanned, un­locks and later locks the door.

The de­liv­ery work­ers re­ceive prompts to en­ter the home through apps on their phones and do not have ac­cess to in­di­vid­ual codes or keys. The en­tire pro­ce­dure is mon­i­tored on the cam­era, with cus­tomers no­ti­fied when the de­liv­ery per­son has left.

Ac­cord­ing to Ama­zon, the ser­vice will of­fer ad­di­tional se­cu­rity to peo­ple who worry about pack­ages be­ing left out­side and could even­tu­ally be used for ac­tions like let­ting pet sit­ters or clean­ing work­ers in­side as well.
