Amazon Developing Smart Doorbell
Amazon is reportedly working on a smart doorbell that delivery drivers can use to enter a one-time access code in order to deliver Prime orders into consumers’ homes, according to CNBC. The device will either need to link to a user’s smart lock or have some sort of lock component in it, and it’s still unclear when it would be released, or how much it would cost. The announcement follows a similar Walmart initiative involving crowdsourced delivery startup Deliv that uses August smart locks to provide in-home deliveries in California. While the device has some potential, it’s still unclear whether it will be able to overcome consumers’ privacy concerns. The US smart home market has still yet to meet the expectations many observers had in the early part of this decade.
