In the fight against holiday season porch pirates, Amazon is launching a new delivery system that allows its couriers to leave packages inside your house or apartment. Meanwhile, the courier will receive a prompt on their app and can then unlock the door with a swipe. In fact, the Key app will notify you when the delivery goes down and show you an instant replay.
Amazon has taken steps to take as much sketchiness as possible out of the equation.
As if letting digital giants like Google and Facebook into nearly every aspect of your life wasn't enough, now Amazon is offering to physically come into your house.
"Amazon Key is the ideal example of the company¹s focus on long-term thinking".
Amazon recommends that the Amazon Cloud Cam be installed inside your home within 25 feet of yoursmart lock and facing your front door.
Here's how it works: First, customers will need to purchase special equipment before they can enroll in the service, including a compatible smart lock, security camera, and the Key app (Amazon is now selling $250 bundles). Amazon is pushing even further into the wise home area, a market that has made tremendous strides in, all acknowledgments to the very popularity of its own Alexa gadgets.
"Alexa, is it a good idea to let strangers into my house?" You can watch the whole process live on the security camera.
Amazon is gambling that the benefit of having secure home delivery of packages will outweigh the potential downside of the perception that it's seeking an invasive level of access to the customer.
Even if you choose in-home delivery, couriers are instructed to ring the bell or knock on the door first. It's also a way for Amazon to entice you to prioritise its services.
Once it is all set up, you'll need to select "free in-home delivery" at checkout on Amazon.
In order to use this service you have to be an Amazon Prime member.
According to Amazon, when your package is delivered, the company authorizes the delivery, turning on the camera and unlocking your door. I, Traumatic Brain Injury Futurist, love to erase literally all the physical and technological boundaries separating my home from the retail supply chain of unspeakably vast and infinitely ravenous profit-making machines that only this year suffered huge security breaches exposing the personal data of thousands and thousands of people. And yet in a world full of stolen credit card information and password leaks, it can be scary to put the literal keys to your front door in the hands of a big company. You can also use this to let in service appointments or guests. All you've got to do is fork over $249.99 (or more) for a Amazon Key In-Home Kit, place your usual order of kale chips - or schedule a sprucing up by the Merry Maids or a dog walk on Rover.com - and your wishes will be fulfilled as you blithely pursue life outside your castle.
