https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/20...l-smart-locks-customers-doors-dont-have-wait/ Waitrose customers will no longer have to stay in for their food deliveries as the supermarket will become the first to send delivery men into their homes while they are out. An "in-home" delivery service, in which front doors are being fitted with "smart door locks" to give drivers access to customers' homes to unpack groceries while they are out, is about to be trialled. Delivery men will be fitted with chest cameras so customers can be sure they are not stealing their items or nosying through their drawers while they are out, and customers have the option of requesting the footage afterwards. Personally, no. Back in the early 1950s, delivering into the house (in rural areas, at least) was commonplace. The baker walked in and put the bread on the kitchen table, the milkman would deliver the milk right to the fridge (we didn't have one - it went into the pantry, an air-cooled cupboard), etc. I still remember an embarrassing moment (for my mother) when she had just finished washing her hair in the kitchen sink (as one did in the 1950s without a bathroom) and she heard footsteps, so hid in the pantry, assuming it was the baker. It wasn't, it was the milkman, so he walked in and opened the pantry door to put the milk on the cold marble shelf, as was his usual practice. Mother said "Oh, I'm sorry. I thought it was the baker." It was all round the village by 1pm!
