Technology giants like Amazon are slowly looking to take over your home with services in the oddest of places. But does this come as much of a surprise?
After all, devices like Alexa, the Ring security system, and Amazon Fire TV can connect to just about anything in your home. From the lighting on your back porch to the refrigerator, nearly every electrical device is now on Amazon's radar. But what about the lock on your front door?
Yes, your front door can now be controlled by Amazon as well. With Amazon Key, the concept is simple: allow couriers to drop off a package inside your home using Amazon Key, as opposed to leaving the package outside and prone to potential theft. But as one observer notes in an article from the Washington Post, this is all a bit creepy, and less convenient than one might assume.
