On Wednesday, the company announced a new service called the Amazon Key for Prime members, which allows you to remotely let people into your house-particularly couriers dropping off packages.

The in-home kit, which costs $250, includes the Amazon Cloud Cam indoor security camera and a compatible smart lock for your front door.

Amazon Key requires a Prime account, a smart lock and Amazon's Cloud Cam.

Amazon Key deliveries will only be from Amazon, not other shipping services or the U.S. Postal Service.

Need a package delivered while away from home? 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.




The Key is now available to customers in 37 cities and can be used for 10 million products.

When the delivery person arrives, the app sends the customer another note saying the delivery person is at the door. 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.

Here's how it works: If you select the option for "in-home delivery" when ordering your package, a delivery driver will be able to enter your home even when you're not there and drop off your package.

Amazon says customers should not worry about the safety of their home. "You'll be notified any time your guest locks or unlocks your door", Amazon said in an online press release. The company promises to cover delivery issues, property damage, or theft with their "Amazon Key Happiness Guarantee".

Amazon Key is only available in 37 cities.
