If you've ever thought the walk from your couch to your front door to pick up a package was too long, Amazon might have a solution.
Amazon has reportedly struck a deal with smart-home companies August and Garageio, which both make locks and garage door openers, <b>according to The Information</b>.
The deal would allow a courier to take your Amazon package, open up your house and plop the package wherever you wanted.
Of course, you'd have to allow Amazon to do that.
This might actually give your wallet a boost. If Amazon doesn't have to keep what it ships safe from the elements, it can cut costs -- which theoretically could make its shipments cheaper.
Has this happened before?
This isn't entirely unprecedented. August uses a system called August Access that gives people temporary "keys" to a smart home, letting people like dog walkers and cleaning services hop in even when you're not around.
Garageio CEO Zachary Dziczkowski said Garageio is excited to secure the "last 10 feet" of the logistics chain.

In-House Amazon delivery is scary (they put pckgs inside your door). I like Garageio but I still think a locker next to your door works best— Victor ✍🏽 (@AustinFilmSnob) September 27, 2016
The obvious catch is that not everyone wants everyone waltzing in their home.
