Amazon Key Will Revolutionise Deliveries!
Amazon found new ways to make your deliveries simpler and more convenient: Amazon couriers can now let themselves in your house!.. Don’t be alarmed yet, it is a Prime-only service that has a smart lock and a camera connected to it. But not just any camera: it’s Amazon’s Cloud Cam, that acts as a home security device, that is able to respond to voice commands… As long as you have an Alexa-enabled device such as the Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire TV or Fire tablets…
Amazon Key operates by the couriers scanning the barcode of your purchase in, which sends an access request to Amazon’s cloud. As permission is granted, the camera records your delivery being made. The the courier uses their app to lock and unlock your door. An instant notification will be delivered to you with regards to your delivery, as well as the video footage of it. Key can be used for other purposes as well. Such as dog-walkers, cleaners, guests and Airbnb hosts.
Together this deal will cost you around $250, including installation. The key service will become available on November 8, with additional features like footage archiving and motion detection in the works.
