Amazon's Key service lets Amazon drivers - with your permission - deliver packages directly into your home. That service is now being expanded with Key for Garage, which means Amazon Prime members can have their boxes dropped in their garage instead.
The new service is only available for Prime members in the US right now, in select cities, and you'll need a myQ-compatible garage door opener to make use of the service. You'll then need to download the myQ and Amazon Key apps to link the accounts.

You can check if you door is compatible on Amazon's site (where you can also see if Key is running in your city). If it isn't, Amazon is selling the myQ Smart Garage Hub for $50 (a reduction down from $80) to get you up and running. How thoughtful.
Once you're all set up, you just tick the 'In-Garage delivery' box when you get to the checkout. You can monitor the status of the garage door in the Key app, and if you have an Amazon Cloud Cam you can have it record any deliveries take place.
Garage delivery offers a half-way option for those who are uncomfortable letting a stranger in their home, but don't want to risk having their packages snatched or being weather-damaged from being left outside.
