Once your delivery driver has arrived, they'll knock on the front door first and, assuming that no one answers, will then be granted access from Amazon itself. Members will be able to authorise delivery services to unlock their home remotely using the app.

"No more leaving the key under the mat" for deliveries when a customer is not home, Amazon said. "We think this is going to be a fundamental way that customers shop with us for years to come".

The Amazon Key will allow couriers and other people you trust to enter your home when you aren't there. Already the company has added lockers and apartment building package hubs.

The startup cost to use the otherwise free in-home delivery system may dissuade some users.

A outcome of the rise in e-commerce is that "theft is certainly a problem", said John Haber, who works with retailers on supply-chain issues as chief executive of consultancy Spend Management Experts.

The service arrives just in time for the holiday season, when porch piracy is at its peak.

But it remains to be seen whether consumers are ready to open their doors to strangers.

"They've been on a mission to do this", said Garner. When the green LED light is on, you know your camera and microphone are on. Each time a delivery driver requests access to a customer's home, Amazon verifies the correct driver is at the right address at the right time.

Amazon has announced a new program that will allow packages to be delivered inside their homes.

Amazon's $120 Cloud Cam indoor security camera has a few unexpected features for its price. Once setup, you get live view of the deliveries to your home, as well as notifications that they are happening.

Amazon said Wednesday it'll launch a service called Amazon Key next month that will let people allow the door to be unlocked when they're not there so packages can be left inside. The company says the service is covered by the Amazon Key Happiness Guarantee, which applies to delivery issues, property damage or theft.

The Key app and delivery service will be available November 8, and you can preorder the camera today.

Amazon is determined to get Alexa integrated into every hardware gadget it can think to create, which is why we have a growing list of Echo devices to choose between. It is integrating its artificial-intelligence assistant Alexa into everything from refrigerators to cars to its Echo speakers.

Amazon is trying to make package deliveries more convenient for Prime members with its new Amazon Key service, which delivers items inside customers' homes.
