Amazon Key unlocks your door for in-home package deliveries

Amazon unveiled a new service today that will let its couriers deliver boxes inside your home when you're not around.

Amazon's couriers can now drop off deliveries inside your house. It also grants access to the people you trust.

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. All of this is done through an encryption process, and once the process is complete, the Cloud Cam begins recording, and the door is unlocked for the employee to enter.

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).

When the delivery person arrives, the app sends the customer another note saying the delivery person is at the door.

In a move aimed at protecting packages from would-be thieves, Amazon is rolling out a security camera/smart lock bundle that would allow deliveries to be left inside the home.

Others worry about letting a stranger inside their home and hackers. Amazon says you should avoid using the service if you have pets that could escape through the front door. However, the added upfront cost may stop some from initially embracing Amazon Key.

Amazon says the system will be made available on November 8 in 37 cities, including Atlanta, Cleveland and Denver. The upbeat Pixar-esque jazz soundtrack and Buster Keaton comedy all makes it seem like giving Amazon access to your front door and using one of its cameras to monitor your home is no big deal.
