If taking groceries from the front door of your home to your kitchen is too much of a hassle, Walmart wants a word with you. Following an early announcement in June, the retailer's direct-to-fridge InHome Delivery service is now available in the US.

The idea behind the service is that you can order any groceries you may need through the company's mobile app, and then a delivery person will come to your home and stock your fridge for you. Each so-called "associate" wears a camera so as to ensure the safety of the operation.

To start, you'll need to pay a one-time fee of $49.95 so that the company will install the Level Home smart lock or Nortek garage door controller its employees will use to enter your home. After the first month, there's a monthly fee of $19.95. Moreover, while the subscription gives you access to unlimited deliveries, there's a $30 minimum on orders -- so you can't exactly use the service in a pinch.
