WOULD YOU LET A STRANGER INTO YOUR HOUSE TO DELIVER & PUT YOUR GROCERIES AWAY FOR YOU?

That’s exactly what the new delivery service that Walmart is working on wants to do. Trying to keep up and compete with Amazon is enough to drive anybody to the edge of insanity. That’s what it looks like is happening here. Walmart has teamed up with smart home accessory company, August to give the service a test run. Here’s how the service will work:

  • The delivery man, using a one time code provided by August, will enter the customers home (provided they possess the necessary home upgrades provided by August of course)
  • The delivery man will then place all perishables into the fridge for you. The remaining items will be left in a box next to your front door.
  • Customers will get a notification of the delivery, at which time they can watch the whole process via remote camera with the August home app.

The test is being run in Silicon Valley and only customers of August home accessories can use the service as of now. Will you be using this service when it becomes available in your area?
