Today (24th April 2019) Amazon announced that Key for Garage is available to customers. Key for Garage allows eligible Amazon Prime members to get deliveries in their garage using the Key Smart Garage Kit. Simply select “In-Garage delivery” at check out on Amazon.com to have packages delivered securely and conveniently in your garage. Additionally, customers can check the status of their garage door in the Key by Amazon app and remotely open or close it.

We know it is important to keep innovating to make delivery as convenient as possible for customers, which is why we’re excited to now have Key for Garage available,” said Rohit Shrivastava, GM of Key by Amazon. “Today, we are thrilled to open Key by Amazon to millions of Prime members who can now have their Amazon packages delivered securely to their garages. With this new option, members can truly unlock the convenience of the Amazon experience.”

Open for Delivery
Key for Garage is made possible by integrating Key by Amazon with Chamberlain Group’s proprietary myQ-connected technology. If you already have a myQ-connected garage door opener, all you need to do is link your Amazon and myQ accounts in the Key by Amazon app and you’re ready to go. Otherwise, you can purchase one of two Key Smart Garage Kits: the myQ Smart Garage Hub—which lets you add connectivity to your existing garage door opener—or a new myQ-connected Chamberlain or LiftMaster Wi-Fi garage door opener. You can also choose to add an Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition) to either kit so you can see your garage any time via the livestream or view clips of entries, including deliveries. Additionally, any customer in the U.S. can use Key for Garage to manage access to their garage via the Key by Amazon app.

“A recent survey found 72% of Americans who live in a house or townhome take extra measures to ensure delivery acceptance of their packages, including staying home from work to wait for the package,” said Jeff Meredith, CGI President and Chief Operating Officer. “With Key by Amazon, homeowners no longer have to reorganize their life to receive packages. Key plus myQ smart garage access gives homeowners control over the package delivery process while offering a safe and convenient destination for unattended package delivery.”

For a limited time, customers can purchase a myQ Smart Garage Hub for $49.99, a 37.5% discount. Additionally, customers can purchase a myQ Smart Garage Hub bundled with an Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition) for $124.99, also a 37.5% discount.
