Amazon launches smart lock and security cam system to take in-home deliveries for Prime members, with iPhone app alerts

Amazon has today announced its latest expansion into smart home ecosystem, with a new Alexa Cloud Cam security camera ($ 120) and a new Amazon Key service, which works with some smart locks to allow Amazon couriers to unlock your front door and deliver packages inside your house.

Amazon Key sends a notification to your iPhone that a courier is outside. If you aren’t at home, the Amazon courier will walk in and leave your parcel inside your house. You can use the security cam to keep eyes on the delivery person as they drop off your package.
