Walmart wants to deliver groceries to your fridge when you're not at home

Walmart is teaming up with a smart-lock company to test a new grocery delivery service.

According to Business Insider, August Home makes smart locks that would allow a delivery person to enter a one-time passcode to go into your house and put away all your groceries even if you aren't at home.  That same person would also do the shopping for you.

The service is already being tested in Silicon Valley with August Home users who have agreed to be part of the test.

Customers would get a notification on their smart phones when the delivery person is at their house.  August Home smart cameras would also allow customers to watch the employee put away the food.

Below is a Walmart's video showing how the service works:
