Amazon launched the Key in-home service, which allows delivery drivers to remotely unlock houses to place packages safely inside, in October, reported CNet. Currently, compatible 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles with active OnStar accounts, plus 2015 or newer Volvo vehicles with active Volvo On Call accounts can receive in-car deliveries. The app can find the vehicle within two blocks, so if you had to park a little ways away it's okay. Available now in 37 cities and their surrounding areas - with plans to continue expanding nationwide - the service includes tens of millions of items sold on Amazon.com and works with same-day, two-day and standard shipping options.
Once the driver is standing next to the auto, they tap on the app and it opens the locks.
Linked Carlo Ancelotti offered Italy job

In-car delivery is available to Prime members and is part of the Amazon Key service, which was launched past year and allows Amazon to make package deliveries inside your house while you're away. "For Volvo owners this is another way to take advantage of how they can use the vehicle". After a customer adds their car's color, make and model into the app, a delivery person can find it with the aid of Global Positioning System.
Clearly, the security is a major concern here so the installation of this system is available only on 2015 GM-made or Volvo cars. The service required Prime members to buy a smart lock and camera combo so drivers could request a remote unlock of your door and have their picture taken as they drop off the package. They can only get inside once you give them a permission for that specific delivery.
It isn't Amazon's first alternative delivery site.

Porch Pirates grabbing your stuff? Equipped with this information, Amazon's couriers can then unlock the trunk using a specialized app of their own. If you want your package at driveways, garages (parking), parking lots or street parking it will be much easier because the the courier service of Amazon will have random access around the world.
Still, these safety measures won't do enough to convince customers who are skeptical about letting a stranger into their vehicle.
With that said, the service could still prove to be a valuable addition to Amazon's value proposition.
