Amazon Key everyday use features are now available to all Amazon
customers in the U.S.; Prime members in 37 cities can continue to take
advantage of optional in-home delivery
Expansions to Amazon Key also include a broader lock selection from
two of the world’s top lock makers, Kwikset and Yale, and entry and exit
video clips during guest access
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 5, 2018--
(NASDAQ:AMZN) — Today Amazon announced the expansion of Amazon Key’s
smart entry features to all customers nationwide, including keyless
entry, remote lock and unlock, and guest access. The in-home delivery
feature continues to be available only to Prime members in 37 select
cities and surrounding areas.
Amazon also added a new feature to Amazon Key: entry and exit clips for
guests, friends, and family. With this feature, customers have the
option to view motion video clips of a person entering or leaving when
the door is locked or unlocked. This provides customers with increased
peace of mind and security with real-time notifications and the ability
to watch the clips at their own convenience. Customers can turn on or
off the entry and exit clips feature at any time in the Amazon Key App.
“Customers have told us that they love how easy it is to use Amazon Key
for keyless entry and door monitoring from anywhere with the Amazon Key
App,” said Rohit Shrivastava, General Manager, Amazon Key. “It’s a great
service for busy families; you no longer have to worry about giving keys
to service providers like house cleaners, instead you can give them
their own code right from your Amazon Key App. We’re excited that
customers across the country can now take advantage of these convenient
In addition to in-home delivery, Amazon Key makes customers’ lives
easier in many ways. No more leaving a physical key under a door mat;
customers can lock and unlock their door from anywhere using the Amazon
Key App with the touch of a button. Customers also have the added
security of providing codes to guests for home access, managing their
guest list, and assigning when and for how long a guest has access.
Amazon Key customers can also use their app to view a live stream of
their door anytime, use two-way audio, and receive notifications when
their door is locked or unlocked. And, customers can use Alexa to lock
their door, ask for lock status and view the live feed from their Cloud
Cam on compatible devices like Fire TV, Echo Spot, and Echo Show.
Customers across the country can now choose from five new smart locks
from leading lock manufacturers Kwikset and Yale. This expands the
selection to a total of eight state-of-the-art smart locks available in
three finishes as part of the Amazon Key Home Kit. Some of the new
features include full touch screen keyless entry for added security and
contemporary new styles to fit the aesthetic of any door.
For a limited time, customers can purchase the Amazon Key Home Kit at a
special price, with savings between $109.99-139.99 per Kit. The Kit
includes an Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition) and one of eight compatible
smart locks. Customers can visit www.amazon.com/keykit
