Amazon to launch new delivery service that could curb theft

Amazon to launch new delivery service that could curb theft”

On Wednesday, the company announced a new service called the Amazon Key for Prime members, which allows you to remotely let people into your house-particularly couriers dropping off packages.

In the spirit of competition, Walmart recently announced a similar product that allows delivery people to drop off packages or stock their customers' fridges with food purchased from Walmart.com. Amazon Key works in two parts: choosing in-home delivery while checking out on Amazon and providing access to your home through Amazon's new Key in-home kit, which includes a smart lock provided by Kwikset or Yale and a special version of the company's new Cloud Cam security camera.

Perhaps the most frustrating thing about Amazon deliveries is not being home when the delivery shows up.

She had filed an application with the Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell on behalf of Fauzia Ansari , Hamid Ansari's mother. Also, he was sentenced to 3 years imprisonment by a military court on charges of illegally entering Pakistan and "spying".

The old-school method of leaving a key underneath your doormat is inconvenient and often anxiety-inducing, so Amazon believes its new lock-and-camera system will make accessing your home when you're not around more secure.

Reuters reports Key systems will be available to Amazon Prime members in 37 locations nationwide starting in November 8, but New Orleans is not yet on the list. "You'll be notified any time your guest locks or unlocks your door", Amazon said in an online press release.

Amazon Key is only available in 37 cities.

Using a list that appears on the app, the delivery person is first instructed to knock on the door or ring the doorbell.

Others worry about letting a stranger inside their home and hackers. Amazon emphasizes that its workers are not allowed to enter a home.
