Desus & Mero Blast The New Amazon Key

Whatsapp

In an attempt to cut down on theft, deliveries that get damaged or lost when left outside and to support their customers' peace of mind, starting on November 8, Amazon is rolling a service called Amazon Key that allows Amazon delivery personnel to gain access through Amazon Cloud to place Amazon purchases directly inside a customer's home. Amazon Key is available to Amazon Prime members and only in selected areas of the country for now.

Second, Amazon says it's also working with professional service providers such as Merry Maids and Seattle-based Rover.com to give them authorized access to homes via Amazon Key "in the coming months".

Amazon will make sure the person is at the right home and unlock the door.

In conjunction with Amazon Key, the company also debuted its Cloud Cam on Wednesday, which is an intelligent indoor security camera that features 1080p resolution, night vision, two-way audio, a wide viewing angle, and activity clips from the last 24 hours via the Amazon Cloud Cam App.

So if you're watching the delivery person walk up to your door and you suddenly have second thoughts about letting a stranger into your home, you can revert the delivery back to traditional drop-off outside of your door at any time. You can buy the package on Amazon and install yourself or opt for free installation. "Now, Prime members can select in-home delivery and conveniently see their packages being delivered right from their mobile phones".

If you're anxious about trusting the delivery driver, all you have to do is turn to your phone.




Once again, Amazon has upped the game on delivery. "These individuals are thoroughly vetted, with comprehensive background checks and motor vehicle records reviews".

She said she hopes Silicon Valley soon learns that people want more than just convenience.

With the Amazon Key app, customers will be able to track the deliveries in real-time, and even watch live as the delivery occurs via the Amazon Cloud Cam. The service can be extended to family and friends.

That means all you bird and fish owners out there are fine, but any dog or cat lover who doesn't want to crate their little buddy for the day is likely out of luck.

The Amazon Key help pages answer more questions, including whether to use Amazon Key if you have a pet with access to the front door, or aren't comfortable shutting off your security system on delivery day.

Not to worry, says Amazon.
