Walmart is upping its grocery game as the superstore is testing a new delivery option: filling your refrigerator when you’re not at home.

Amazon already delivers inside your home, The Associated Press reported, but it only puts non-grocery packages in a home, garage or car trunk.

Walmart’s trying to compete with the online giant, and will use smart technology, including employees wearing a camera, to be permitted to enter a customer’s home and stock their pantry, according to the AP.

The customer will be able to watch the live video and will grant access to the delivery person remotely.

Information about how much the service could cost shoppers will be released before the program launches this fall, the AP reported.

It will be tested in three markets: Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Missouri and Vero Beach, Florida. More than a million customers will be able to test the system.
