(AMZN) Products Allow For In-Home Package Deliveries

Amazon Cloud Cam    
   Becca Farsace

The service is called Amazon Key and the indoor security camera has been named the Amazon Cloud Cam.

Amazon says that each subscription offers Person Detection, which flags human activity instead of general motion (like a pet walking), and Zones, which lets you indicate certain areas of your home with motion that you want ignored (like a ceiling fan).

Amazon has plans to drop off packages directly into shoppers' homes.

Available to Amazon Prime members in select cities, Amazon Key leaves deliveries "just inside your front door".

How does it work?

"Cloud Cam has all the features you need to monitor your home, including a 1080p Full HD camera, night vision, two-way audio, and free storage for clips-and with the secure AWS cloud powering Cloud Cam's advanced computer algorithms and intelligent alerts, the service is always getting smarter", said Charlie Tritschler, Vice President, Amazon Devices, in a statement. Once this process is successfully completed, Amazon Cloud Cam starts recording and the door is then unlocked.

BJP harassing Dalits and Muslims : Mayawati
BJP, in its political interest, can also bring Dawood Ibrahim to India through "saanth-gaanth" and to attract Hindus. She alleged that BJP conspired to get her killed during caste violence in Saharanpur in April-May.

In this case the security products can be tied-into the Alexa personal assistant and can allow deliveries from Amazon to be delivered into the home even whilst the customer is not home - the door can be unlocked remotely, and the camera switches on as soon as the door opens. "This is a core part of the Amazon shopping experience from this point forward".

The Key app will also facilitate normal smart lock features, such as granting access to relatives or friends and will also expand to support 1,200 service providers in 60 professions, such as dog walkers and cleaners, meaning more can be done while you are not at home. Couriers are told to ring a doorbell or knock when they arrive at someone's house. The delivery associate can not proceed with other trips until the home is again locked.

High profile hacks and data breaches have caused cyber security to be huge business for technology companies, nonetheless, Amazon.com Inc's (NASDAQ:AMZN) latest consumer offering s targeting the more traditional bricks and mortar security. What happens if the lock fails due to a technical glitch?

Amazon Key sends a notification to your iPhone that a courier is outside.

He added that if a problem arises, "You can call customer service, file a claim and Amazon will work with you to make sure it's right", reimbursing customers in some cases.

The new Amazon Key service is launching in the United States on the 8th of November, it will be available in 37 cities at launch.
