Amazon Considering Delivering Stuff To Your Car Trunk

  • Now Amazon Wants The Key to Your House

Now, Amazon might be looking to get in the act with a new bell that'd grant delivery drivers remote access to customers homes via a compatible smart lock.

Wal-Mart (WMT) is working on an in-home delivery service in partnership with smart doorbell maker August. Users can unlock the box with their smartphone and grant a delivery person access to deliver the items directly to the user's auto trunk, according to the CNBC report. This is similar to solutions other retailers, including Walmart, have tested out with letting drivers inside the front door of customer's homes, although in-trunk delivery is something of a new spin on the idea.

At the same time, Amazon is developing a smart doorbell device that would give delivery drivers one-time access to a person's home to drop off items. Amazon didn't respond to our request for more information. But more recently, it's interested in ensuring deliveries actually arrive at their final destinations. Now the company is working to make sure your packages get inside the front door, or even into your vehicle.

Besides the convenience factor, innovative delivery techniques are being pursued by e-commerce giants due to the persistent problem of theft of unattended parcels. Amazon also has an incentive to reduce the number of lost packages, as they can be costly.
