Walmart employees can now deliver groceries directly to customers’ refrigerators when they aren’t home.
The new Walmart InHome Delivery service, which was announced at Walmart’s shareholder’s meeting in June, was officially rolled out on Tuesday. CNBC was first to report the news.
It is currently limited to customers in Kansas City, Pittsburgh, and Vero Beach.
Walmart workers gain access to customers’ homes using smart-lock technology controlled from a mobile phone. These employees are fitted out with a camera that records the delivery process and customers are able to live stream this video.
