Amazon package theft has become such an important topic as the growth of online shopping explodes, that companies are looking for new ways to deliver goods safely and securely.
The new service will join Amazon’s existing Key for Home and Key for Car services as it continues to find new ways to cut down on package theft. If you have a smart garage door opener, like the MyQ from Chamberlain, then you could take advantage of this new service called Key.
According to a 2017 study, 11 million homeowners in the U.S. had packages stolen in the previous year. Approximately 53 percent of homeowners are concerned that packages left outside their homes can be stolen, and 74 percent of packages are stolen while homeowners are at work, adding to the problem.
“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,” said Rohit Shrivastava, GM of Key by Amazon in the statement. “Launching with Chamberlain Group, the leader in the space, ensures that our customers will have the best possible experience whether they are checking to see if the kids reached home safely, making sure the that the garage door is closed while at work or on the road, or choosing the most convenient and secure way to have their Prime packages delivered at home.”
