Walmart will be testing an in-home delivery option for online grocery orders starting this fall. Test sites will reportedly include Kansas City, Missouri; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Vero Beach, Florida. To use in-home delivery, customers must allow Walmart to install a smart lock on their home or garage. Then they can place a grocery order on or through the Walmart mobile app and select "InHome Delivery" at checkout. At their selected delivery time, a Walmart employee will pick their orders and then use a proprietary wearable camera device and one-time code on the smart lock to enter the customer's home and deliver their orders. The company says it will "learn and scale" from the original three locations, but it doesn't have specific expansion plans at this time. Walmart tested a similar program in 2017 with smart-lock maker August Home, but the pilot eventually fizzled out.
