Amazon has announced a new service that would allow delivery people to unlock your front door and leave packages inside your home. According to the company, the delivery driver won't be given an access code or key, instead, they will be able to open customers' doors using cloud technology. The locks - provided by Yale - are available in a variety of finishes to compliment most doors.

The Key is now available to customers in 37 cities and can be used for 10 million products. It also grants access to the people you trust. Some customers think so after the online retailer announced its newest product today: "Amazon Key".

When the delivery person arrives, they will knock, and then scan the package to a Wi-Fi connected lock. The company will offer free in-home installation, but says it's simple enough for customers to install themselves.

These Major Fashion Magazines Have Blacklisted Alleged Sexual Predator Terry Richardson
In 2001, Canadian model Liskula Cohen said she walked out of a Vogue photoshoot because she wasn't comfortable with his requests. Richardson, 52, has always denied any allegations of harassment made against him.

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

This system is another way Amazon is making it easier for customers to receive packages quickly and securely.

If no one answers, the delivery person swipes a button in the app that sends a message up to the cloud, which sends a message down to the customer's Amazon-enabled smart lock.

Others worry about letting a stranger inside their home and hackers. Amazon Key seems ideal for customers who are out most of the day and can not be home to accept packages or those who often experience package theft. So she orchestrates the preparations remotely-using the Amazon Key app on her phone to let in a cleaning crew and a courier delivering her mom's present.

This service is not just for package delivery.
