"But it would only take a few incidents to stop this dead in the water - people wouldn't want to have something on their front door if they felt it wasn't secure". You simply choose one of the compatible smart locks available and combine it with Amazon's Cloud Cam.
Users with home security systems will need to disarm them on delivery day in order to allow couriers access. The new Amazon security camera will begin shipping to USA customers on November 8. You can also select "Block Access" in the Amazon Key App at any time up until the package is delivered.
Cloud Cam comes with the essentials for keeping an eye on your home, including access to the last 24 hours of clips, which are stored securely in the AWS cloud and support for up to three cameras.
Amazon has unveiled a new service called Amazon Key, and it's very similar to Walmart's new straight-to-your-fridge delivery... with a more limited range.
Online retailer Amazon.com announced in-home delivery of packages in which purchases will be placed within a customer's home. Drivers will knock before unlocking the door electronically with a handheld scanner. In the USA, the Cloud Cam will begin shipping on November 8. All of this is done through an encryption process, and once the process is complete, the Cloud Cam begins recording, and the door is unlocked for the employee to enter. It won't tell you who it sees, but it should divide alerts into basic motion and person-related motion. You can give friends or family temporary, recurring, or permanent access to your home and also allow other service employees, such as dog walkers, cleaners, and others, into the home on certain dates and times.
The Cloud Cam itself is a slick piece of hardware. With a subscription, you can support up to 10 cameras, get additional storage for video, and have unlimited downloads and shares of video clips. You can also use this to let in service appointments or guests. Each subscription tier can be tried for free for 30 days and includes unlimited video sharing. Cloud Cam is created to fit in any part of your house, freestanding or mounted, just plug it in, download the free Cloud Cam App for iOS, Android or Fire OS, and get started. You can, for example, see the live feed from the Cloud Cam on your Fire TV on Tablet with a simple Alexa voice command. If you went the Nest Cam or Nest Cam IQ route, you'd be looking at a $500 price for 3 cameras or as much as $299 for a single cam. As it's powered by the cloud, Amazon claims this is a security camera that will continue to get more intelligent.
