Amazon Is Betting on In-Home Deliveries to Win Over Prime Users

Its new kit includes a security camera, techy lock and app


Amazon is getting into the home-security space.

Today the ecommerce giant unveiled Amazon Key, a kit that equips houses with a smart lock, a security camera and a mobile app that lets consumers peek at what is going on in their houses virtually for $249.99.

Using the kit, Amazon delivery staff will be able to drop off packages inside front doors. The service launches on Nov. 8 and is only available to Amazon Prime users, which could help Amazon increase Prime subscriptions, which includes free, two-day shipping, access to music and video streaming and free digital books and magazines.
