Ready for takeoff: Front Door Tech
The one thing that we use every day that hasn’t received a technology upgrade is your front door. New start-ups and big e-commerce giants are trying to change that. We are in the age of on-demand delivery, service providers are looking to leverage technological innovation with doors.
Just recently Amazon acquired Ring, a smart doorbell developer, for $1.1 billion. The smart locks are attached to camera systems. For Amazon’s goal is to repurpose and leverage this to enable in-home deliveries to customers who don’t want their packages sitting outside. There could be many commercial applications with new front door tech. Such as Airbnb or renters can manage access to home with tech as opposed to having to physically give and take keys. Service providers such as cleaners, plumbers, or installers can leverage this tech also.
