The camera-equipped, multi-zone units will carry a launch price of $499 and allow customers to accept deliveries from any retailer. (Early Bird Pricing offered).
Walmart's arrangement with HomeValet is the retailer's latest step in delivering groceries to shoppers' homes without requiring them to be around or immediately available to put away their items.
Walmart's Smart Box integration is the latest step for the retailer in offering unattended delivery. Earlier this month, Walmart announced it will bring its in-house service, which has workers deliver groceries directly into customer's refrigerators, to 30 Million households this year.
