Amazon Challenges In-Store Convenience with In-Home Delivery

Remote control means that Amazon drivers can’t open doors by themselves and the security camera keeps an eye on their in-home behavior. If that’s all you need to feel comfortable with this idea, you probably shouldn’t read this article pointing out that there are no government standards for security on Internet of Things devices and the latest Congressional proposal won’t help much.
