Are you worried about losing your deliveries to parcel thieves? You are not alone as parcel theft has become more and more prevalent. According to NYT, an estimated 1.7 million packages are stolen or go missing every day. A quick search on YouTube reveals tons of “porch pirates” video clips of thieves caught in the act. The Danby Parcel Guard is a smart mailbox for those who are tired of missing packages and want to do something about it.
The Danby Parcel Guard is a mailbox for all your online deliveries. It sits on your porch in front of your house and it is connected via WiFi to the internet. It has an opening for accepting most types of deliveries. The great thing about this smart mailbox is that it does not have a complicated unlocking system which might deter the delivery person from using it.
To make a delivery, all that needs to be done is to open the front flap, place the parcel in and Parcel Guard will do the rest. The parcel gets lowered to the secure storage compartment on the lower half of the mailbox. At the same time, a notification is sent to your phone informing you that a parcel has arrived. You can then easily retrieve your delivery by opening the locked compartment using your phone.
Besides the locked storage, the Parcel Guard has several other features that keep not just your parcels safe but your home as well. There is a built-in security camera that records all deliveries. You can watch the captured footage as a live stream from anywhere via the internet.
There is also a Temper Alarm should the Parcel Guard detect any attempts to break into the mailbox. An alarm will sound and an alert is sent to your phone.
