What the Tech? Amazon home delivery

From Amazon

Additionally to the confirming the deliveries (where available) the Cloud Cam will be handy for checking pets from work, monitoring your doors or rooms while on the road, or looking in on kids or babies. And if for some reason the delivery person forgets to lock the door, the Smart Lock automatically re-locks after five minutes. This new service starting next month hopes to solve this problem. Spec wise, it's a pretty decent model for the price ($119.99), giving you wide-angle 1080p video, night vision via eight infrared LEDs, two-way audio over Alexa ("tell your dog to stop barking", Amazon suggests) and free storage for clips.

"Amazon Key is perhaps the most outre example of this phenomenon yet", Emba wrote. The kit comes with an Amazon Cloud Cam unit and one of several compatible smart locks.

The service will be available for subscribers to the company's Prime service, initially in 37 USA cities, from 8 November 2017. Amazon doesn't necessarily specify the delivery companies by name, but rather says they are "some of the same professional drivers who you trust to deliver your Amazon orders today".

Amazon employees won't be knocking on doors for much longer.

The service will also allow you to unlock the door for friends or family. Then when you buy something online from Amazon, you can mark the in-home shipping option.

Kid Rock Admits His US Senate Run Was All for Publicity
But in the Stern interview, Kid Rock was clear: His "campaign" was a stunt that people had taken too seriously. Senate bid was all to boost interest in his upcoming record. "F-- no, I'm not running for Senate".

Amazon on Wednesday unveiled a new way for Prime members to receive packages directly in their homes while they're away - Amazon Key.

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

"I think it's a good idea", she said.

So how does it actually work? If it checks out, the cloud triggers the camera to start recording.

Here's how it works: Couriers will arrive at your home with a package, scan the barcode against the installed smart lock, which makes a request to the Amazon cloud for access to the home, according to The Verge. No special codes or keys are given to the driver. Once done, they relock the door with another swipe, and are off to their next delivery. For any further need, you can take notes. The company's unwavering commitment to meeting homeowners' needs has inspired its innovative lock portfolio that includes patented SmartKey Security™ deadbolts, keyless entry combination locks, connected home technology, first-to-market electronic lock, Kevo™, door hardware with Microban® antimicrobial product protection and a wide variety of styles and finishes.
