Amazon today announced the expansion of its 'Amazon Key' smart entry features to all customers nationwide, including keyless entry, remote lock and unlock, and guest access. The in-home delivery feature is still just available to Prime members in 37 select cities and surrounding areas.

Amazon Key has also been updated with a new Entry and Exit Clips feature:

With this feature, customers have the option to view motion video clips of a person entering or leaving when the door is locked or unlocked. This provides customers with increased peace of mind and security with real-time notifications and the ability to watch the clips at their own convenience. Customers can turn on or off the entry and exit clips feature at any time in the Amazon Key App.

“Customers have told us that they love how easy it is to use Amazon Key for keyless entry and door monitoring from anywhere with the Amazon Key App,” said Rohit Shrivastava, General Manager, Amazon Key. “It’s a great service for busy families; you no longer have to worry about giving keys to service providers like house cleaners, instead you can give them their own code right from your Amazon Key App. We’re excited that customers across the country can now take advantage of these convenient features.”

Amazon Key lets you lock and unlock your door from anywhere using the Amazon Key app. You can provide codes to guests for home access, manage your guest list, and assign when and for how long a guest has access. The app can be used to view a live stream of your door at anytime with two-way audio and to receive notifications when the door is locked or unlocked. Alexa can be used to lock the door, ask for lock status and view the live feed from Cloud Cam on compatible devices like Fire TV, Echo Spot, and Echo Show.

Five new smart locks from Kwikset and Yale are now compatible with Amazon Key, expanding the selection to a total of eight locks in three finishes.
