Amazon KeyA keyless front door system from Amazon that lets people enter a home for deliveries or repairs. Introduced in 2017, Amazon Key requires a Key-compatible smart lock in the door. To record who comes through the door requires a compatible camera. Friends and contractors can be given specific times to arrive, and Key owners are alerted on their smartphones.
In-Home and In-Car Delivery
Amazon Key allows in-house delivery of packages for Amazon Prime members. In 2018, the service was extended to dropping off inside an automobile, starting with OnStar-equipped General Motors models and Volvos with Volvo On Call (2015 and newer).
|Leave the Packages in a Safe Place|
|When people are not at home, Amazon Key allows packages to be delivered inside the house where they might be safer than on the door stoop. (Image courtesy of Amazon.com.)|
