Online shopping has made it so convenient to buy any number of things that many of us place our orders and forget about them until the boxes show up at our doorsteps. Oh yeah, it’s that thing I needed!
As nice as it is to get something delivered to your door in a matter of days—if not hours—there will come a time when you won’t be around to receive a package. We all work, go to school, or are otherwise preoccupied during the day. A package sitting in front of a house or inside an apartment building is an easy target for theft.
According to a November PCMag survey of 1,500 people, about 25 percent are concerned about having their packages stolen. Security-related devices are the most popular smart home products—28 percent have a security camera, 25 percent have a video doorbell, and 17 percent have a smart lock. Most people are willing to spend an average of $110.86 on home protection gadgets, our survey found.
If you’ve ever had to rush home to bring in a package, perhaps you should consider one of these gadgets or services to help secure those deliveries. Peace of mind can often be worth the price.
