    Amazon's Will Now Deliver Your Packages Inside Your Home



    Not at home? Not a problem. As a Prime member, you can get packages securely delivered into your home without being there. Plus, grant access to the people you trust, like your family, friends, dog walker, or house cleaner—no more leaving a key under the mat.

    Secure access. The In-Home Kit features the Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition) indoor security camera and an Amazon Key-compatible smart lock.
    Real-time notifications. We’ll send notifications the morning of delivery, just before, and right after. Watch your delivery happening live or view a video clip of it later.

    Stop making spare keys. Give family and friends temporary, recurring, or permanent access. Or provide one-time access for your electrician or dog walker. You’re in control—just schedule the date and time window.

    Check in on your front door 24/7. The Amazon Key In-Home Kit includes an Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition) indoor security camera with 1080p Full HD, night vision, and more—plus an Amazon Key-compatible smart lock for secure access control.

    Free installation. Get the Amazon Key In-Home Kit installed for free by a professional. Just schedule your installation appointment during checkout.
    Exclusively for Prime members in select cities and surrounding areas. Enter your zip code to see if Amazon Key is available in your area. Check back as we expand to more cities.

    Let the courier drop off packages inside your home. In select areas, you can do this by signing up for Amazon Key, a service available to Amazon Prime customers. It allows you to let delivery drivers from Amazon enter your home when you're not there. It requires the purchase of a kit, currently $200 on Amazon, that includes a smart lock and an indoor security camera, so you can keep an eye on your home and record activity.

    The service is new, and there's always a concern about security flaws. In November, for example, security researchers discovered a vulnerability in the Amazon Key service that could allow couriers or other outsiders unauthorized access to the homes of the service’s subscribers. Amazon says it has fixed that flaw.

    This is genius! For $200, I can have the functional equivalent of a robot butler. Or at least of a robot doorman.

    It's not yet available in Cleveland, but I am sure it will be soon. Count me in!

    Your thoughts?

    Probably very difficult, if you are not home. But still, I do not want people just wandering in with stuff ... might be less when I get back than when I left.

    They drop it off at your door whether you are home or not, in apartment buildings they don't even touch the buzzer...

    Thieves just walk past pick up the package and follow the truck to the next drop off.

    The solution, a hack able techno key to get into your house.

    I ain't worried about hackers, as I do not live in a mansion. But I do lose a certain number of packages to theft, or worse.

    UPS and Amazon both text me when a package has been delivered to my house. And I have a Ring doorbell, which records video of all movement within range of my front door.

    Just fucking happened again today! I certainly hope Amazon makes this right, because UPS would not.

    I think my UPS deliveryman gets lazy, and just keeps shit.

    Delivered goods are vital to me, madam, and that will only get more true as I become more frail. Innovations like Amazon Key give me hope I can remain in my home until I die.

    I feel sure that by the time they get to Cleveland, they will have plugged whatever hole it is feared hackers would exploit.

    Technically, the delivery company is responsible until they get a signature, and if you refuse to sign, they are supposed to return to sender.

    I wonder if they just don't care enough to do their jobs... Almost worth getting a PO box and have them deliver to that.

    Well that sucks, I'm sorry

    I have never had a package stolen from my front door.

    I still don't want strangers in my house - especially when they can hack the Amazon special lock.

    But hey to each their own. Hope it works out for you.

    Actually the PO box is great advice.
