The CES tech expo in Las Vegas is the home of many exciting inventions making their debut into the public eye. One such innovation is the eDOR, an expanding door that allows delivery companies to leave small parcels inside the door. The door connects to an eKey on the delivery person’s smart device and unlocks expanding compartments that parcels can be stored and locked in. The door also offers a tethering device for larger parcels that sounds an alarm and alerts the police when the parcel is tampered with.
This modification to the door is supposed to tackle parcel theft, something that affected 11 million US homeowners in 2017. The door is currently still in the research and development stage so it is unknown when consumers could be using this safer method of delivering parcels.
