Have you ever had an Amazon package delivered to your house when you aren’t there? Typically, the driver leaves the package sitting on your front porch until someone arrives home to bring it inside. There have been countless stories about people having their packages stolen from their porch by thieves driving around looking for exactly that: unattended packages.
To combat this problem, Amazon has come up with a service called Amazon Key. A delivery person can now deliver your package remotely to the trunk of your car without needed a key fob. As of right now, this service is limited to recent Chevy and Volvo models, but there are many other car companies expressing their interest in this feature.
Here’s how it works:
-You must have an Amazon Prime membership.
-Download the Official Amazon Key App and follow the directions to set up your vehicle.
-Upload your license plate number and a photo of your vehicle.
-Agree to the terms and conditions.
-Start receiving your packages remotely!
Once you give Amazon the required information, they will use your vehicles GPS signal to locate the vehicle near the given address. Amazon will let you know that you package is out for delivery and once they scan your package, your car will be notified, and the trunk will unlock for the delivery person to leave the package.
Are you going to use this delivery service? We would love to hear from you!
