Amazon Key offers package delivery, inside your home

AmazonA sample Amazon package delivery using Amazon Key is shown here

Once it's established nobody is home, the delivery worker will remotely open the door using the smart lock app and slide the package inside.

The new product works with Amazon's new Cloud Cam, an Amazon Key app, and a smart lock, to allow delivery drivers to drop off packages inside Prime customers' homes when they aren't around. Check out some reactions from Twitter users about Amazon Key.

"Schedule permanent access for your family members or give temporary access to recurring visitors like dog walkers, house cleaners, or out-of-town guests".

While Amazon can direct its delivery employees to enter a home, the homeowner can control who else can come in when they aren't around. If you're not convinced, you can watch the entire process on your phone using Amazon's Cloud Cam.

Flushing medications down the toilet or throwing them in the trash pose potential safety and health hazards. Authorities in San Diego and Imperial counties collected more than nine tons in 2016, according to the DEA.

This service is not just for package delivery. The proper package tag then will unlock the door and allow the carrier to place the package inside.

The service uses a kit, that start at $249.99, which includes an Amazon security camera, the Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock.

The Key is now available to customers in 37 cities and can be used for 10 million products. Note, only Prime-eligible items can be delivered in-home. Amazon recently announced Hub, a locker-like system for apartment complexes, that provides another kind of secure package delivery that doesn't require giving a stranger access to your home. The company promises to cover delivery issues, property damage, or theft with their "Amazon Key Happiness Guarantee".

Amazon says the system will be made available on November 8 in 37 cities, including Atlanta, Cleveland and Denver.
