One of the unique features of the Smart lock – the ability to send mobile keys to friends and family remotely is currently being trialed by a well-known supermarket chain (Waitrose – While You’re Away Service) as a way to assist with grocery deliveries. The Yale Keyless Smart door lock is the key to the success of this service, as the lock enables the customer to grant the delivery driver access to the property by setting a temporary access code for the lock, this code is then sent to the supermarket via a secure app and then it is forwarded the driver’s device at the time the customer has booked for the delivery – the driver will enter the property put refrigerated and frozen goods away and leave other groceries on the kitchen counter, or elsewhere if instructed to do so by the customer, once the delivery is complete the code given to the driver is is deleted.
A full record of the driver’s delivery is kept from the driver’s chest web cam and the video of the delivery can be made available to the customer within 24 hours should they require it.
Nigel Fisher, Managing Director for Yale UK, says,
‘Working with Waitrose & Partners to develop the UK’s first in-home delivery service is an exciting premise for Yale, as we look to understand how smart products can enhance daily lives, as well as protecting your home. Our heritage and priority is in security, but the technologies we’re now working with means we can also collaborate with companies, like Waitrose, to develop services that fit with modern life.’
