3 Security Tools to Prevent Package Theft

Published October 7th, 2021 by Secure IT Securities Corp

Are you dealing with porch pirates? Or opening up a business and want to secure incoming packages? You should know that in the last year, Americans lost about 5.4 billion dollars of value in packages due to package theft.

If you're looking to never be a victim of porch piracy again, you're going to have to take some steps towards package theft prevention. Luckily, we've got the tools to help! 

You won't regret making this investment to ensure you don't lose money in the future. Keep reading for our top 3 security tools to prevent package theft!

1. Security Cameras

Have you ever noticed yourself on camera in a convenience store? Even if you aren't doing anything wrong, a security camera is sure to make you hyper-aware of how you're acting. Installing professional security cameras outside your home or business can be the best deterrent to porch pirates.

You have a few options when it comes to security cameras. A thermal single-sensor panoramic camera is a great choice for businesses. You may have seen these cameras outside gas stations, hotels, or office buildings. Thermal detection on these cameras allows for great image capture in the dark with either a 180 or 360-degree view.

 A digital camera solution may work best for your home. Modern-day digital CCTV (closed-circuit television) cameras can connect to your homes' internet connection. Then, recordings and alerts can be sent straight to your phone so you can see what's going on from anywhere.

2. Anti-Theft Package Box

While security cameras can deter thieves from stealing, they still may not prevent package theft from occurring. If you're looking to go the extra mile on top of your security camera, consider investing in a theft-deterrent package lockbox.

You can find front porch lockboxes from many manufacturers. They'll cost you a few hundred dollars on average. But if you frequently order packages or experience the loss of many packages, it could be worth it. But how does it work?

You'll set a code for your lockbox and include it in the delivery instructions whenever you order a package. Some lockboxes have slots for small packages, but you will likely have to provide a code for delivery.

3. 24/7 Professional Monitoring

If your security system isn't connected to professional monitoring 24/7, what's the point? You'll miss out on access to security pros ready to respond to any alert or danger. At Secure It Securities Corp., we ensure professional monitoring with each of our security products.

You can install cameras and security systems with the technology to allow you to view footage and secure your home from your phone. But you won't always be able to monitor safety at all hours of the day. That's where the professionals come in.
