Walmart wants to stock your fridge for you— even if you’re not home.
The store is teaming up with a smart lock startup called August Home to test a service in which workers would use a temporary door code to deliver your groceries literally right to your kitchen.
The online grocery/food delivery world has recently blown up. So of course, Walmart needs to keep up.
The deliveries will be monitored by security cameras and customers will have the option of watching the delivery process via an app.
The couriers, who are contracted through the startup company, will only let themselves in if no one answers the special doorbell, which is provided by August Home and triggers a smartphone notification when pressed.
The trial is currently limited to a small group of August Home customers in Silicon Valley. But hey, it could be an option for you very soon!
