Amazon reinvents the lock and key game

Jeff Bezos wants your house keys!

The world’s largest retailer Inc introduces a new scheme. The team announced this on Wednesday. Peter Larsen, said, “This is not an experiment for us. This is a core part of the Amazon shopping experience from this point forward.”

In case you missed the news, here’s a lowdown:

  • Amazon launches Amazon Key, a lock and camera system that users could control remotely. This would also help delivery boys drop off packages into homes.
  • The customers could create temporary passcodes for friends and other service people
  • This new scheme might help Amazon capture sales from customers who cannot make it home to receive an order personally
  • Amazon’s market for home securities also aggravates, competing with rivals like Alphabet Inc’s Nest Lab
  • Amazon Key launches in November 8th 2017

Do you think these schemes could be introduced in India too? Do let us know.
