Have you ever ordered something online and waited for it to arrive at your house, and you find out that someone came along and took it off your porch? That may be a thing of the past because Amazon is set to deliver packages to your garage.
The company’s latest plan would involve dropping off packages inside your garage. Amazon announced the service, called Key for Garage, at this year’s CES. Rohit Shrivastava, GM of Key by Amazon said in a statement, “We launched Key as a delivery service exclusively for Prime members, but it has evolved to focus on access solutions for all customers. We are excited to add Key for Garage as an option for remote monitoring, access and Prime deliveries.”
The new service will require some additional hardware in the form of an $80 Chamberlain myQ Smart Garage Hub that lets Amazon talk to your garage door opener. Even though the service is a benefit of having an Amazon Prime subscription, those who do not have Prime can still open the garage remotely using the Amazon Key app. The new service will be available in the second quarter of 2019.
