Amazon Key will initially be available in 37 USA cities where the firm's own courier, Amazon Logistics, will handle deliveries.

The system works when a courier scans the package which sends a signal asking permission to unlock the door using Amazon Key.

"This is not a trial".

Furthermore, this service can be used outside of the Amazon realm. But it's also a standalone offering, and another in the growing family of Alexa-enabled devices that promise to integrate Amazon into every part of your home life.

Today, Amazon announced yet another way for Prime members to get their packages. Alexa, call Amazon customer services, I've been robbed.

Bundles that include Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock start at $250. You get access to the last 24 hours of video, but with a subscription, which starts at $6.99 per month or $69 per year, you'll be able to go further back in time, and get support for more cameras. The security camera, dubbed Cloud Cam, will also be sold as a standalone device for $120. Amazon will also offer free installation of the kits. It announced a new "intelligent" camera called the Cloud Cam, and a new smart-lock service called Key.

Amazon Key allows customers to have their packages securely delivered inside their home without having to be there. Once set-up is complete, receiving in-home delivery is as simple as a click: customers select "in-home" while shopping and Amazon handles the rest.

It's not the first major retailer to experiment with remote delivery access. After leaving the delivery inside, the driver locks your door with a swipe of an app.

The courier then leaves the package in a pre-agreed location within your house.

Couriers will use a smart lock and be filmed using a webcam once inside. When they arrive, they will receive a notification and a request to unlock the door with a handheld scanner. It will even give the delivery person access to your refrigerator. He said asking customers to make their front doors accessible might be more hard. They will not come from Amazon Flex, which allows individuals to sign up to deliver packages in their free time.

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.

"We knew that peace of mind was going to be critical here", Mr. Larsen said.
