Amazon now wants to leave deliveries inside your metro Detroit home

If you regularly use these services, or you're notoriously bad at receiving packages, Amazon Key might seem like a good investment.

Amazon has a new product for online shoppers who worry about their delivered packages sitting on the porch or doorstep for too long.

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

The service also allows customers to set the frequency and length of time for friends and family to access their home using the smart lock.

Here's how it works: If you select the option for "in-home delivery" when ordering your package, a delivery driver will be able to enter your home even when you're not there and drop off your package. The kit comes with an Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition) and an Amazon Key-compatible smart lock provided by Kwiskset or Yale. With the lock on your door and the indoor security camera monitoring the doorway, the in-home kit can allow authorized people into your home. You come home to find a little note stuck to your door that says, "Sorry we missed you!"
