The new Amazon Key allows the likes of couriers, dog walkers or your cleaners into your home without you needing to be there with them! Good idea, right? Or, is it…?
This technology is an extension into Amazon’s growing Internet of Things arm. Missing a package from Amazon can be a pain so it’s clear to see why this seems like a safe bet, but a survey done by the Recode suggested that 58 percent of people who have Amazon Prime definitely would not buy Amazon Key. Privacy and security concerns around technology which allows access to the home will be an issue Amazon are going to struggle to convince people with. For now.
