A new component of Walmart’s Plus membership program was just introduced. It’s referred to as InHome Delivery, and it enables Walmart to transport your groceries and other items inside your home as well as place them inside your refrigerator on your behalf. In order to avoid melting groceries on the floor upon arrival home, you can order your groceries while at work.
Walmart Plus does not include InHome Delivery; it costs an extra $7 per month or $40 annually. InHome’s new yearly cost is $138, which is still less expensive than it would have been without Walmart Plus. So, this is a really fantastic deal.
Naturally, that does not include the additional costs associated with using InHome delivery. A compatible $49.95 Level smart lock , $49.95 Genie automatic garage door opener, or $49.95 garage keypad are required purchases. This is done to prevent the Walmart delivery person from setting off any alarms while entering your house.

However, you may also install cameras all over your house to watch what they do. And check to make sure they are only taking your items and leaving nothing else.
IS THIS NOT RELATIVE TO THE AMAZON KEY? Amazon introduced a comparable program called Amazon Key in 2017. furthermore declared its own Cloud Cam (which is now being sunsetted in favor of Ring and Blink cameras). Though it didn’t quite go as far as InHome from Walmart. The sole purpose of Amazon Key was to allow the delivery person to bring your package(s) immediately to your door or garage.
The purpose of this was to deter porch pirates. By storing your packages in your house securely. rather than putting it on the porch, where a passing motorist could take it.
