Amazon Could Start Dropping Off Packages Inside Your Home

By a show of hands, how many of you would go for something like this? What if the delivery guy damages your vehicle? Accidentally doesn't shut the door all the way? Let's one of you animal escape when he opens the door? Hmmm, it just seems to me that a lot could go wrong when you have access to someone's home.

Here's how the process would work, according to August: When you check out a purchase from Amazon store, you can opt for an in-home delivery -- allowing the courier one-time access to your home via an August-locked door or Garageio-controlled garage. During delivery, the courier would use the access key via the appropriate app and leave your package safely inside.
