Smart Locks Allow UPS Drivers To Deliver To Multi-Unit Homes
Working in tandem, UPS and Latch are making it easier to drop off packages while residents are away from home, enabling optimally convenient delivery service for customers
UPS is making to easier for residents of multi-unit housing complexes to receive their packages through its collaboration with Latch. The service allows non-residents such as delivery agents to access the multi-unit home when occupants are out.
While these smart locks make accessing unoccupied residences easier, they simultaneously ensure residents’ security and peace of mind: UPS drivers receive credentials on their Delivery Information Acquisition Device (DIAD) to enter residences equipped with Latch smart locks and every entry is recorded digitally by Latch.
This partnership between Latch and UPS aims to make package delivery more convenient for customers, and serves to compete with Amazon’s delivery service. UPS is prioritizing its consumers’ needs for easy and convenient delivery as well as privacy and safety with this capability, ensuring a smooth delivery service experience from start to finish.
