Amazon Key will launch on November 8 in 37 cities around the USA and works with Same-Day, One-Day, Two-Day, and Standard Shipping orders. The $250 bundle includes an Amazon Key-compatible smart lock and Key Edition Amazon Cloud Cam that would allow Amazon Prime members the ability to watch a package be delivered inside their home.

A new service from Amazon will protect your packages from porch pirates.

Amazon has launched a new service that lets delivery people into your home. The camera has night vision, so you can tell if it's panic room time or just your friendly neighbourhood Amazon delivery person leaving the next Mario game inside your house. And in the coming months, Amazon will release a service making it possible to schedule access for thousands of providers, such as house cleaners, dog walkers and more, according to the news release. The Internet retailer didn't immediately respond to a Free Press request asking which MI locations will be among the first to get Amazon Key, but several zip codes across metro Detroit are shown to be eligible.

In the spirit of competition, Walmart recently announced a similar product that allows delivery people to drop off packages or stock their customers' fridges with food purchased from Walmart.com.

NAFTA renegotiation talks will bleed into next year amid 'challenges'
However, Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo told CNNMoney in April that such a proposal wouldn't work for him. The first key disagreement is over "rules of origin".

All of this is captured by the security camera, and a video of the entire event is sent to the customer to review.

But Amazon seems to be hoping that you won't give privacy a second thought here. You come home to find a little note stuck to your door that says, "Sorry we missed you!" This allows the delivery person to swipe a button on the app that unlocks the door.

The shipping courier will first knock before attempting to open the door.

Amazon's solution is called the "Amazon Key".
