This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Key by Amazon. All opinions are 100% mine.
To be honest, I am not really sure how parents used to get everything done without Amazon. We constantly have household essentials, school supplies, and travel accessories being shipped our way from them. However, it can be a little nerve-wracking to get something pricey delivered when we are not sure if we will be home in the timeframe of delivery. This is exactly why we are OBSESSED with one of Amazon’s newest services; In-Garage Delivery through Key by Amazon!
Why We Are Excited About Key by Amazon
How cool would it be to have a delivery locker right in front of your home? Well, that is basically what Key by Amazon will turn your garage into!
This is one of the best innovations I had heard about in a while, and we could not wait to get it installed in our garage. I love that the weight of wondering or worrying about my package arriving is just completely taken off my shoulders because they can be simply placed in my garage.
This means my packages will never get left out in the hot SoCal sun or caught in a rainstorm again! And, I don’t have to worry about missing packages.
On top of that, I can’t tell you how many times we have ordered something and forgotten about it until we are walking around Disneyland or sitting on the beach somewhere. Never again do we have to have an “Oh no!” moment like this disrupt our day.
Best of all, if you install the optional Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition), you will actually get a video receipt of your package being dropped off. My anxious mama mind just loves how secure this system is.
How Key In-Garage Delivery Works
If you are eligible, you can purchase the myQ Smart Garage Hub + Amazon Cloud Cam or the myQ Smart Garage Hub alone. This will turn your regular old garage into a smart garage, which you will connect to your phone through the myQ app and Key by Amazon app!
*Please note that if you already have a Chamberlain or LiftMaster brand myQ enabled garage door opener you may not need to buy a myQ Smart Garage Hub.
Follow the step by step instructions provided through the app for wireless installation. Trust me, we are not that handy and had it set up in minutes. You can also invite up to 3 “guests” who will also have control of the garage. This is perfect for us so that my oldest teen can have access to the smart garage for deliveries or use it to open the garage if he’s ever locked out.
Link the myQ App to the Key App and go ahead and order that package you have sitting in your cart! You will receive updates on your smartphone up until delivery and confirm your address and package before granting access to the garage. You will also get a notification once the garage has been re-closed by the delivery driver. Make it back home on your own time and your package will be there waiting.
