In-Home Delivery When You’re Not Home
A step above allowing your delivery person access to your car is allowing them to deliver your order inside your house when you’re not at home. Of course, COVID-19 put this nifty and somewhat scary feature on pause, but it’s good to keep in mind for the future.
If you live in one of the 50 metropolitan areas where this feature is available, you need to outfit your home with an Amazon-enabled smart lock and camera. Using the same Key by Amazon app, drivers can simply put the box inside your home so that porch pirates can’t get to it.
You do have to pay extra for the special lock and camera, but they go a long way for peace of mind, both for the delivery person that will have access to your home and for the items that won’t get stolen off your porch. You’ll get notified of the delivery and you can watch the driver drop the package off right at your door through the camera.
It’ll all cost you around $220, or more if you want to pay someone to install the smart lock for you. What do you think, worth it?
