Amazon Key to allow delivery of packages inside your home when you're away. Are you cool with that?
"AMAZON is looking to take its package delivery service one step further — inside your home.
Instead of dropping off on the porch, a new service announced Wednesday would allow Amazon to unlock your door and gain access to your home — whether you’re there or not — to leave the packages inside.
Amazon Key is rolling out next month in Chicago and 36 other cities. It requires an Amazon Prime membership, a $250 installation kit and a degree of trust in granting delivery drivers access to your home.
The system, which includes a keyless-entry door lock, a video camera and real-time notification to watch the event as it happens, may deliver peace of mind to some customers by thwarting the growing problem of porch pirating — thieves that swipe packages before they get to the rightful recipient."
