Amazon Announces Program For Indoor Deliveries

The all-new Amazon Cloud Cam available for pre-order today

With Amazon Key, customers can have their packages securely delivered inside their home without having to be there.

This state-of-the-art technology doesn't simply replace a key with a digital passcode.

But for package deliveries, you may need to keep your dogs and cats a bit contained: Amazon doesn't recommend using the in-home delivery service if pets can get to the front door on delivery day.

The smart lock is called the Amazon Key and the indoor security camera has been named the Amazon Cloud Cam.

On the off-chance something goes awry, the service also includes something approximating insurance, called the Amazon Key Happiness Guarantee. Customers can install the kits themselves or take advantage of free professional installation.

Obviously, the areas in which Amazon Key will first launch include major metropolitan areas around the country, with all of the usual suspects like Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, and Washington DC all present and accounted for. The Amazon Key service launches in 37 United States metro areas on November 8.

Whew, crisis averted. This Amazon Key service is so easy and convenient!

The roll-out service from Amazon Business is a paid annual membership program for registered multi-user business customers in the USA and Germany that offers unlimited free two-day shipping on eligible items for all users on an Amazon Business account. Users who want their packages delivered inside their homes can select the "in home" option on the app to get their items delivered inside their residence when they're not home.

The system can also be used to let family and friends into the home while the resident is away. Many customers may not be okay with letting someone enter their home when they are not there but the camera is for the customers to watch the entire delivery.

Amazon says you do have the option to disable the device'. Customers can set the frequency and length of time a person has access, and add or remove contacts as they see fit. Amazon is also selling subscriptions that range in price from $6.99/month to $19.99/month for storing clips for a longer period, distinguishing between people and motion from other sources like pets, zone control, clip sharing, and connecting to more cameras. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon.
