Amazon now wants to leave deliveries inside your metro Detroit home

The camera has night vision, so you can tell if it's panic room time or just your friendly neighbourhood Amazon delivery person leaving the next Mario game inside your house. If the courier information and the barcode on your package match, the Cloud Cam starts recording and the courier unlocks the door with an app. Customers then get a notification accompanied with short video footage of the Amazon courier in your house. The $250 bundle includes an Amazon Key-compatible smart lock and Key Edition Amazon Cloud Cam that would allow Amazon Prime members the ability to watch a package be delivered inside their home. Some customers think so after the online retailer announced its newest product today: "Amazon Key".

The whole thing doubles as a friends and family access system.

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.

The Amazon Cloud Cam and smart lock. This allows the delivery person to swipe a button on the app that unlocks the door.

Carrigan says the victim was upset about the fan in the jersey standing up throughout the game and obstructing his view. He added, "That's what the 15 seconds didn't show", with regard to the video of the altercation posted on Instagram.

People are taking to Twitter to let Amazon know how they feel about Key, expressing a mix of disbelief, anger, and worry. The company will offer free in-home installation, but says it's simple enough for customers to install themselves.

The shipping courier will first knock before attempting to open the door. The company promises to cover delivery issues, property damage, or theft with their "Amazon Key Happiness Guarantee".

Amazon Key, releasing November 8 in 37 cities and surrounding areas across the United States, starts at about $250.
