No more missing packages thanks to Key By Amazon In-Garage Delivery!
One of my favorite ways to shop is online. No lines. No parking. No crowds. It’s beautiful!
But what’s not beautiful is a missing package. A few years ago I spent the better part of Christmas Eve at the post office in a very long line attempting to track down a missing package that was a gift I needed that day. I ended up empty handed and disappointed.
That’s why I’m loving Key by Amazon In-Garage Delivery which allows you to have packages delivered securely right inside your garage when you are not at home. You receive notifications throughout the entire in-garage delivery process, including a time window when to expect delivery. Security is ensured thanks to a camera and confirmation from Amazon that the delivery is in the right place.
While you may have been lucky enough to not have had a missing package, having in-garage delivery is so beneficial. It keeps packages dry in case of snow or rain. It’s also great if you are out of town or even just out of the house for the day. There is nothing worse than having an important package delivered during the 30 minutes you were taking the kids to school! It’s nice to have the package safe and sound inside your garage.
How to Set up Key by Amazon In-Garage Delivery
To get started you will need the Key by Amazon Smart Garage Kit. The kit has two parts – Key Smart Garage Garage Kit and an optional Amazon Cloud Cam. The smart garage hub is really cool! It connects your garage door to your Wifi. This then enables you to control your garage door from an app on your phone.
The optional cloud cam works in conjunction with the smart garage hub and allows you to see who is in your garage. Although not necessary for in-garage delivery, the cloud cam does provide a little more security so you can see your packages being delivered.
Setting up the Amazon Cloud Cam and the smart garage hub was super easy. It took me about 10 minutes total. First, you will set up the the hub in the MyQ app so that your garage door is on your Wifi.
Once your garage door is ready to go, download the Key by Amazon app to enable in garage deliveries. You can also set up the cloud cam, if you want.
How to Order on Amazon for In-Garage Delivery
Once you have everything set up, it’s easy to get your Amazon packages delivered in your garage. Add the items you want to purchase to your cart. You will see shipping options on the right of the screen. These will include options for In-Garage Delivery. It’s just like your normal ordering process but with the secure delivery options available.
What to Expect from Key by Amazon on Delivery Day
On the day of delivery, you will receive a notification from the Key App with a 4 hour time frame. You don’t need to do anything. Throughout the process you will receive notifications of when the delivery is at your garage. You can watch the delivery live on your app or later on.
I had left a note in the delivery instructions asking for the packages to be left on top of the trash bins and that’s exactly where they were left.
Key By Amazon In-Garage Delivery is a great way to ensure that none of your important packages go missing. It’s easy to set up and even easier to use once it’s ready to go. Check here to see if Key by Amazon In-Garage Delivery is available in your area.
