That's what Amazon shopper Julie Butler told me. The Amazon Key is a remote lock that attaches to that door.
Maybe I'm a sucker for Amazon, or just don't care about privacy, or more likely I just like to try new stuff. Walmart started the whole initiative by testing the concept through a new partnership with the smart home security company, August. You can choose the exact time you want your items dropped off and watch the delivery person enter your home from your smartphone because each Amazon Key kit comes with a security camera and the Cloud Cam. It's only available for Amazon Prime members, according to a company statement.
Initial Cost: Yes, you do have to pay Amazon for the privilege of giving the company access to your front door.
Subscription: Cloud Cam video storage is free for 24 hours, no subscription required, but subscriptions ranging from $7/month to $20/month enable extended storage times, people identification, the ability to set zones for the motion-detector to ignore, and downloading and sharing video.
With Amazon Key, access requires neither keys nor codes.

The program is called Amazon Key - and the reason they call it that is because you're going to give the key to your house to the Amazon delivery driver.
Butler was pretty adamant in her rejection of the very idea of opening her home to a stranger delivering a package, but after explaining how Amazon says it will work, she's all for it. They are further described as "thoroughly vetted, with comprehensive background checks and motor vehicle records reviews".
Amazon believes this is safe and the answer to many packages being stolen once they're delivered.
On delivery day, you receive a notification of a four-hour window for arrival. All the delivery drivers know they are being filmed, from the time they reach your door until they leave.
The delivery person never actually touches the door or lock, but instead communicates with the Cloud via the Amazon Key app.
