So here's an interesting news story... Walmart is testing a delivery service that doesn't just deliver TO your door, but INSIDE your home.
Here's the deal--
Walmart wants to fill your fridge and pantry, even when you aren't home. They're testing a delivery program that lets customers use smart-home technology to remotely open the door for delivery workers. You can then link your phone to home security cameras and watch a live stream of someone else putting away your groceries.
Walmart is testing this in Silicon Valley where, presumably, more people would have this kind of in-home technology.
Cool or creepy? I vote creepy. Totally creepy.
Walmart's testing a 'straight to your fridge' food deliver concept. Cool or creepy? https://t.co/BKpa3E2IcH— CNNMoney (@CNNMoney) September 24, 2017
Walmart's new service will stock your fridge when you're not home. It's called 'creepy neighbor with a key'.— Charles Lake (@mesealake) September 24, 2017
Maybe it's just me but not sure I want some stranger going into my house and stocking food in my refrigerator. https://t.co/yfIQA93U5e— GourmetSleuth.com (@foodsleuth) September 25, 2017
Some people are alright with delivery "inside", as long as it's not actually INSIDE the home.
I would let Walmart put groceries away in my garage Fridge and freezer, but not into my house.— Tanda (@Tandabat) September 25, 2017
Me? I'm not even comfortable with ordering online and drive-thru pickup. Just give me a grocery cart...
