TAMPA (FOX 13) - Hey Alexa, should I allow strangers into my house?
Amazon thinks it's a good idea and the company is rolling out a new home delivery service that allows drivers inside your home, even if you're not there.
The new service is called Amazon Key and begins November 8th for Amazon Prime Members.
Here's how it works. You buy a kit that includes a security camera, cloud cam and a compatible smart lock. The kit starts at $249.99.
When you order something online you're given the option for delivery and click the “In-Home” shipping option.
Once the delivery driver arrives, Amazon verifies the address and delivery time and allows them to enter. You can watch from your phone as the camera records the entire process.
Amazon says, the delivery driver will not be given access code or a key. You can also use it to allow family and friends into your house.
Amazon Key will be available in 37 cities including many parts of the Bay Area.
