[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]If you’re a huge fan of Amazon and the many services they offer, then you might be excited to hear that their newest invention gives them instant access to your Dixon home. That’s right, with Amazon’s new Cloud Cam feature, delivery couriers can now unlock your front entry door and leave your package right in your home! Let’s take a closer look at the new Amazon Key and why some homeowners are raising an eyebrow to it.
First, it’s important to know that this isn’t the first time Amazon has gone to extensive lengths to make package delivery as quick and seamless as possible. It was just twelve years ago that Amazon Prime launched, offering subscribers the option for two day delivery on almost all Amazon products. Since that launch, Amazon has showcased a number of ideas to make deliveries even more convenient including same day deliveries, deliveries within the hour and even drones that would drop off packages in the backyard. But when Amazon realized homeowners weren’t always there to answer their front entry doors, they began considering new options (including locker services in more metropolitan areas). However, this still left a problem for those living in the suburbs.
Hence the idea for a new partnership between Amazon and your front entry door. Here’s how it works: Amazon’s new Cloud Cam is installed in your front entry door, which must already feature a smart lock. The camera, connected through your Wi-Fi sends authorization to zigbee, a wireless protocol used by the smart lock on your front entry door. When the courier comes with your package, the camera scans the packages barcode, which grants permission to the smart lock. If you’re concerned about security at this point (as many naturally are), it’s important to know the camera also starts recording the person entering your home and the owner will also receive notification of the drop off as well as the video recording of the occurrence immediately.
Whether or not Prime customers will trust the company enough to allow them to unlock their front entry door has yet to be told, but we believe this is just one of many technological advancements that merge your daily life with your front entry door. Additional good news? Amazon will be selling the bundle for $249.99, including a free installation.
