Will you Grant Amazon Access

Are you ready to grant Amazon access to your home so they can deliver your packages inside when you are not home?

 

Also, they can offer access (with your permission) to anyone else you deem trustworthy like the dog walker, other delivery people, friends and family members.

 

I, for one, would never do this.

 

 

If this has been discussed in another thread I apologize, but I did not find it.

Deliveries aren't a problem for me.  We have an optional amenity here ... concierge office that accepts all my deliveries ... among other things.

Face it, Amazon already has access to our lives, if we order from them.

 

But a key? For over $200? No.

 

But... I have an enclosed front porch, that I can leave unlocked when I'm expecting FedEx or UPS. And USPS goes to the post office, no delivery in my small town. So, security is not an issue for me.

 

The conspiracy side of me shall remain silent.

No.

And speaking of dog walkers, I wonder how many pets will escape when Amazon enters a home to drop off a package.  I shudder at the thought.

No way!  For one thing, they will have to record the code somewhere and many people will have access to your home.  I wouldn't do it at all.

Delivery person would have to cross the moat filled with gators and face the dragon first.

I am pretty sure the answers here  are pretty much representative of the population at large.  So I expect this to be wishful thinking on the part of Amazon.  But I am sure there will be some takers.
