Amazon Key is a relatively new smart lock service that allows drop-offs inside your front door and leave packages. Amazon Key is expanding to work with five additional smart locks today, Kwikset is adding three new models today, and Yale is adding two. The service automatically records what’s happening; Users can also grant entry to certain people while they’re away and take advantage of keyless entry for themselves.

The three models from Kwikset include two with touchpads and a backup keyway and one that includes a touchpad and no keyway whatsoever. Amazon is running a promotion where users can receive anywhere from $110 to $140 off of an Amazon Key Home Kit, depending on which one you choose. There are two models with keyways, and the keyway-less model is called the Obsidian.

When a delivery person has a package, they can scan the barcode to unlock the door. The entire thing happens through an app, and it’s recorded, so you know exactly what is happening while the courier is in your home. And as they leave, they close the door, and everything stops automatically.

Customers can choose from eight different smart locks, including five more options available today from leading manufacturers. Yale’s two new models include one called the Assure 216, with a button pad and keyway, and another called the Assure 256, with a touchpad and no keyway.

Amazon has announced that Key features are now available across the US, but the in-home delivery is still only available in 37 select cities and surrounding areas. Since Amazon is now offering some Amazon Key features across the US, it’s probably only a matter of time before the company expands in-home deliveries to more cities as well.
