Is this the future? Walmart is teaming up with a security company that makes keyless locks for a grocery delivery service that will not only bring food to your house but also get it placed inside your fridge.

A driver from same-day delivery company Deliv picks up your ordered items and delivers them to your house. If you aren’t home or can’t answer the door, the driver can enter with a one-time passcode. For security, the customer will get a notification at the time of delivery and can watch the items being delivered on a security camera. Walmart is testing the idea with a small group of customers in Silicon Valley.

“Think about that – someone else does the shopping for you AND puts it all away,” a Walmart executive said in a press release.

Cool or creepy? Kal Elsebai wasn’t on board on Wednesday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” but Jeffy Fisher was inclined to like the idea.
