HomeValet, a contactless home-delivery company, announced the launch of its Smart Box and app. A solution for secure, contactless, 24/7 delivery will first be offered to eligible Walmart InHome customers in select participating regions this January, with wider consumer availability announced in early 2022.
A secure, temperature-controlled and internet-connected outdoor receptacle, HomeValet’s Smart Box enables seamless unattended delivery of fresh groceries and packages directly to consumers’ front door. Through HomeValet’s mobile app and subscription service, consumers will be able to conveniently customize, manage, monitor and remotely control their Smart Boxes.
“The rapidly maturing e-commerce market exposed a vital need for increased package security and food safety in supply chain last-mile delivery to consumer homes, which HomeValet is designed to solve,” says John Simms, HomeValet founder and CEO.
“The adoption of the HomeValet Smart Box will create a whole new category within the home appliance industry, which hasn’t changed much since the introduction of the microwave in the 1970s,” says Jack Simms, HomeValet co-founder and COO. “More importantly, HomeValet-powered, IoT connected Smart Boxes will put the control in consumers’ hands, so home delivery is designed for the convenience of shoppers, not just retailers.”
HomeValet is a provider of contactless home delivery, aiming to improve the last yard of delivery with solutions made for the modern consumer. Reimagining the current e-commerce delivery supply chain, HomeValet’s patented SaaS IoT platform connects retailers and couriers with a secure, temperature-controlled Smart Box outside of consumers’ homes.
