Amazon has revealed its new Amazon Key service, which will allow couriers to enter your home and drop off your package inside, even if you are not there.
According to the Verge, Amazon Key “relies on a Amazon’s new Cloud Cam and compatible smart lock.”
“The camera is the hub, connected to the internet via your home Wi-Fi. The camera talks to the lock over Zigbee, a wireless protocol utilized by many smart home devices,” they explained. “When a courier arrives with a package for in-home delivery, they scan the barcode, sending a request to Amazon’s cloud. If everything checks out, the cloud grants permission by sending a message back to the camera, which starts recording. The courier then gets a prompt on their app, swipes the screen, and voilà, your door unlocks.”[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/10/25/amazon-key-service-lets-delivery-drivers-enter-your-home-when-youre-not-there/” target=”_blank”]
