Walmart is testing a new delivery service that the company hopes will become the future of delivered products.
Partnering with August Home, Walmart would bring groceries and other items you order to your house, and even put the groceries in the refrigerator for you.
In a blog post, Walmart posed the question:
The process would go something like this: place an order on walmart.com, a delivery driver brings the items to your home, and if no one's home the driver comes inside using a one-time passcode that you provided. Customers would then receive a mobile notification that alerts them the delivery is happening, and allows you to watch the delivery take place.
When the driver leaves, your August Home smart-locked door automatically locks.
The service will be tested in Silicon Valley with a group of current August Home customers.
