Amazon will let delivery people inside your housePosted: Updated:
Alexa, is it a good idea to let strangers into my house?
Amazon thinks so. The company says it has a safe way for you to allow delivery drivers inside your home, even when you're not there.
Amazon Key will be available in 37 U.S. cities to start, and Amazon says it will add more.
It's not the first major retailer to experiment with remote delivery access.
Last month, Walmart announced that it was testing a service that allows a delivery driver from the startup Deliv into your home, mostly for groceries. It will even give the delivery person access to your refrigerator.
In the Walmart service, the driver gets a one-time passcode for a smart lock, and you can watch the delivery on security cameras.
