Amazon Key

A keyless front door system from Amazon that enables authorized people to enter the home. Amazon Key requires a compatible smart lock and an Amazon Cloud Cam to record who enters the house. Friends and contractors can be given a time when they can arrive, and Key owners are alerted on their smartphones.

In-Home and In-Car Delivery
In 2017, Amazon Key was extended to inhouse delivery of Amazon packages for Prime members, who can view the delivery in real time. In 2018, the service was extended to dropping off inside an automobile, starting with OnStar-equipped General Motors models and Volvos with Volvo On Call (2015 and up).
