As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXBUSINESS.COM:

Amazon.com Inc. is on a mission to gain access to the front lobbies of apartment buildings across the U.S., and is trying to sell landlords on the idea of allowing the installation of a digital “key” allowing their package delivery drivers a way to enter.

The online retail and tech giant’s aim is to provide secure and convenient building access for Amazon delivery drivers at apartment buildings and streamline the delivery process for building owners and managers, so their staff or residents don’t need to manually give access each time deliveries are made, a spokesperson told FOX Business.

The article goes on to state the following:

The initiative, called Key for Business, entails Amazon delivery drivers requesting access to a participating building via an app, and the apartment building door or gate to a community is unlocked only after Amazon confirms the driver’s ID, route, GPS location and time of request.


The Associated Press reported that some landlords are happy the system has reduced the constant buzzing from delivery folks. They also say it is more secure than disclosing the building entry code to scores of delivery people.

Without saying the exact number of buildings it has access to, Amazon did reveal the number is in the thousands.

Ashkan Soltani, a privacy researcher who was a senior tech advisor to former President Barack Obama, told the AP that any device connected to the internet could be hacked, including Amazon’s.

  1. This is a bad idea. My complex has a package concierge service that Amazon, Ups, FedEx, and USPS uses to deliver packages.
    We have had this for 2 years and it works great where I live.

  2. What could possibly go wrong (heavy sarcasm)! SMH. Just asking for trouble, lawsuits etc….and yes the first time they are hacked Amazon would be liable.

  3. These people are garbage and half their packages are delivered by 3rd parties and never end up at the right addresses! Hell NO would they be trusted! Install Package brop boxes!
