Being able to buy whatever you need at the touch of a button is nothing short of amazing. Not being at home when the delivery guy comes knocking and running of risk of having your packages stolen from your doorstop is the opposite of that.
Aidan O’Byrne from the UK was in such a situation earlier this month, but he managed to get out of it in the most awesome way, thanks to a video doorbell and a Tesla. His video has gone viral once it was picked up by trade publications and Tesla enthusiasts on various online groups. You can see it at the bottom of the page.

O’Byrne was out doing the school run when the stuff he had ordered Amazon Prime came. When the delivery guy rang the doorbell, O’Byrne was immediately notified on his smartwatch and smartphone. His being a video doorbell, once he clicks on its icon on his device, he establishes 2-way communication.

This way, he was able to tell the delivery man that he wasn’t home but also to inform him that he had another idea for him to leave the packages without running the risk of being stolen. His red Tesla Model X P100D was in the driveway, and O’Byrne used the Tesla app to pop open the trunk. He told the delivery man to place the packages in there, and then closed and locked the trunk again.

“Sometimes all the tech in your life can come together neatly. Not always, but sometimes…” O’Byrne wrote on Facebook in his original post accompanying the video, as per Drive.

He was clearly proud of his accomplishment, which you can see from the way he edited the video. Considering the kind of attention it’s getting, it’s a good thing he did.

And to think that skeptics scoffed at the idea of Amazon and Volvo collaborating on a project that would allow the former to deliver packages straight to a vehicle’s trunk.
