It’s very frustrating to come home and find a package you were expecting missing. Whether you were waiting on something you needed like a prescription or pet food, or you were excited to receive your latest purchase, porch theft is discouraging.
The good news is that your team at DigitalSafe has some helpful tips for protecting your porch from opportunistic thieves!
Install a Parcel Delivery Box Near Your Door
A lockable, tamper resistant delivery box can be a great way to protect packages being delivered. Some containers can even be concealed by being designed to look like a bench or other piece of furniture on your front porch. Here are a few options:

Use a Motion Activated Spotlight
Package theft may occur at any time of the day; however, you can add some extra protection to your porch at night with a motion activated light. A bright light can help to deter a thief who is trying to stay concealed by darkness.
Install Front Door Security
A front doorbell camera may be a deterrent for porch thieves and it also could help your local authorities catch some robbers in the act with video footage. Sometimes, just seeing a camera on the front porch may keep a would-be porch pirate away.
Send Packages to a Secure Location
If you find that your efforts to prevent porch theft aren’t achieving your desired results, you might consider having your packages sent to secure delivery locker, or even a different location like your work address.
