Amazon’s new let me in service

October 25, 2017

Amazon just announced a new service called “Amazon Key” exclusively for Prime members, basically it will allow you to let in anyone including Amazon’s own delivery service inside your home.

The 3rd party smart lock isn’t new, Amazon is using the already established smart locks in the market, it’s no surprise Amazon will create its own smart lock in the future, but for now smart lock manufacturers can breath with ease. The real trick here is Amazon’s new Cloud Cam, which the company added as Key Edition.

Letting a stranger inside your home, are you insane? Not when you have an online camera watching out for you, that’s what Amazon think will make a difference. But still, it’s not for everybody. Amazon knew it will be dealing with a lot of hot complaints because of this, so clearly Jeff Bezos has acknowledged a bigger problem with Amazon deliveries in general: packages are often stolen when left in front of the house door, and customers complaint of unreceived packages are damaging both the company’s image and financial, Amazon had to resend the items and the shipment fees are no joke.
