You can watch the delivery live in the Amazon Key App or see a video of it later. Will be notified you once the delivery is complete and your door is relocked. With Amazon Key, the ecommerce giant will allow Prime subscribers to request in-home deliveries, in addition to giving remote access to guests and visitors without anyone having to leave a key under the doormat. Amazon Key lets you grant access to the people you trust. Schedule permanent access for your family members or give temporary access to recurring visitors like dog walkers, house cleaners, or out-of-town guests.
