Customers will simply choose same day delivery at checkout from Deliv powered retailers and select the time that works best for them.

As retailers launch with August Home and Deliv, consumers are going to have a range of delivery options and services "to make it as broadly appealing as possible", Johnson said. The smart-lock maker just announced that it is opening up it's in-home delivery platform to any retailer, and that it has formed a partnership with same-day delivery service Deliv for last mile delivery fulfillment. With Amazon Key, you can schedule in-home delivery using a specific smart lock offered as part of the service, thereby preventing your packages from being stolen while they wait on your front porch.

August announced the service as a partnership with Deliv, a same day service provider.

August had been testing the service with Wal-Mart a year ago, and the company obviously thinks things went well enough to continue in-home deliveries. The Access platform works with August's line of smart locks, as well as locks from Emtek and Yale, which August's parent company also owns. Amazon Key, on the other hand, launched in November in just 37 cities across the United States, so August Home has the option to ramp up Access quickly to ultimately serve more customers than Amazon Key is capable of. The company now operates in 35 markets and more than 1,400 cities.

If no one answers the door, the Deliv delivery specialist will use the one-time passcode to unlock the door and drop off the package. When the Deliv delivery specialist arrives, they ring the doorbell and a notification will be sent to the customer's phone via the August app that the delivery is occurring.

To ensure the security of a user's property, August claims there will be a "camera feature" to allow a customer to monitor a delivery driver's actions live or review the recording at a later date although the company hasn't elaborated on what form this feature might take just yet. Let us know down the comments. The big-box retailer is expected to make an announcement later this year regarding its progress and the next steps to tackle in-home (and in-fridge) delivery.
