Amazon dishing out new technology in the future? Major changes coming for home deliverers. (KTRK)

Amazon is exploring ways to prevent "porch pirates" from stealing your packages.

The company is in advanced talks with a smart license plate maker that will allow packages to be left in the trunk of your car.

Amazon is also developing a smart doorbell device that would give delivery drivers one-time access to a person's home to drop off items.

It's not clear when these services will be rolled out, or which areas the company plans to make them available. There are also no details on the fees that could accompany these options.
