Amazon device allows couriers to enter your house to deliver package

Key service uses an app a camera and a smart lock to allow a driver to deliver a package inside a customers home

The company assured the service is safe.

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. Alexa, call Amazon customer services, I've been robbed.

Amazon at its discretion may choose to correct a service not completed to satisfaction, to refund the cost of a purchase and pay for up to $2,500 in property damage, or to help file a claim against the service provider's insurance. Amazon Business customers also enjoy a variety of benefits, including business-only pricing and selection, a multi-seller marketplace, approval workflow, purchasing system integrations, payment solutions and dedicated customer support.

Last month, Walmart announced it would test the delivery of packages and groceries - even putting them away in your refrigerator - for customers with smart home products in the Silicon Valley area.

Amazon is the company vetting the strangers you're letting into your home, and the security this fact gives you depends on how much you trust a tech giant to safeguard your valuables.

Amazon Key allows customers to have their packages securely delivered inside their home without having to be there. It is created to help customers who can not stay at home waiting for deliveries and to address the problem of theft of parcels left outside. In fact, the Key app will notify you when the delivery goes down and show you an instant replay. The video starts with her at work when she realizes she needs to clean her home and get a birthday package delivered or her parents' visit will be ruined.

To get started, you'll have to cough up $249 on Amazon's Key In-Home Kit.

Amazon Key will launch on November 8 in 37 cities around the USA and works with Same-Day, One-Day, Two-Day, and Standard Shipping orders. Delivery is available on tens of millions of items sold on Amazon.com and the delivery is available at no extra cost for Prime members.

Now, a lot of people are reacting to Amazon Key with an unqualified "nope!"

All in-home deliveries are backed by Amazon Key Happiness Guarantee.

The e-commerce and cloud behemoth on Wednesday introduced Amazon Key, a service that allows Prime members in certain cities to surveil and remotely open their homes.

The company said the smart lock can also be used to let in out-of-town guests who want to make themselves at home. The delivery person receives a one-time-use passcode for entry, and can be given access to the refrigerator.
