UPS to deploy electronic 'keys'


Atlanta's United Parcel Service is expanding a keyless-entry system for package deliveries into apartment buildings after a successful test in New York and San Francisco, reports Bloomberg.
The system, which involves drivers being able to enter blocks of flats, but not individual apartments, will roll out mid-2019, UPS said in a statement.
UPS will use a remote-access lock made by New York-based Latch, in which a code is sent to a pre-credentialed UPS driver's handheld computer, allowing entry into a high-rise building.
UPS worked with Latch because of technology that enables the system to work without an internet connection, said UPS product development chief Derek Banta.
Amazon.com introduced a smart lock in 2017 that lets its delivery people into a customer's home to leave a package. Amazon also acquired smart-doorbell start-up Ring for about US$1 billion last year, boosting its presence in homes.
This year, Amazon expanded its keyless entry service to businesses, including apartment and commercial buildings.
