Amazon Prime, watch your back. Another retailer is officially giving you a run for your money. Walmart wants to deliver customers’ groceries and put them away. All while they’re not home.
The company is partnering with August Home, a smart-lock start-up, to test an “in-fridge” delivery service for select homeowners in Silicon Valley.
Here’s how it would work: You do your shopping online, and a courier uses a onetime pass code to unlock your smart lock if you don’t answer the door. They unload your perishables into the fridge and leave, locking the door behind them. August Home users can watch the live stream from a security camera, because who doesn’t love watching a stranger stock your fridge from a remote location?
We have to ask: Are we all completely cool with a total rando entering our home? Well, only if they’re putting the eggs in the right place.
