Amazon's looking for another way to combat porch pirates. The company will soon allow customers to have packages delivered to their garages. 

To use the new delivery feature, you will need a smart garage door opener. 

Prime members in select cities will be able to choose "in-garage delivery" at checkout. On delivery day, they will get updates throughout the entire process. 

Amazon is also launching a new lock that connects directly to WiFi and adds more key functionality to the Ring app to stop porch pirates.
