Walmart is launching its new service to make in-house deliveries whenever a person is away; the retail giant Walmart announced Tuesday.
The world’s largest private employer said the new program had become a reality for the following cities: Pittsburgh, Vero Beach, Florida, and Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas. The company is counting on “smart technology” to make sure its associates enter a customer’s residence, make the delivery, and exit without incident.
Associates will use smart entry technology and a proprietary, at the time of delivery, wearable camera to access the customer’s home providing customers to manage access into their homes and giving them the flexibility to look at the deliveries remotely; Walmart stated in a press release. “With InHome Delivery, we’re putting more well-deserved time within the hands of our customers.”
The company notes that the first month of the service is free and that customers can cancel or pause it at any time.
