Amazon.com recently started its innovative Amazon Key service. Thirty-seven major metropolitan areas within the United States now can receive packages from Amazon inside their front doors. All these Prime member customers have to do is to install smart locks equipped to provide single-use entry codes for packages to be delivered directly to their homes.
By the way, Wal-Mart has the same type of idea. In September, Walmart stated it is in the process of testing the delivery of groceries directly to a customer’s refrigerator. This will be accomplished with a smart-lock pass code and home-security cameras, thus allowing the home owner to monitor the procedure inside their home.
