The Holiday Season
The holidays call crime out from under the covers. Maybe its all the stress and the need to provide gifts to everyone causes people who normally do not steel to take the opportunity. Nationally according to the FBI; burglaries increase substantially during the month of December when families leave their homes unattended for the holidays. Police departments caution that theft and property crimes, greatly increase between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Well it will not happen to me; that must be a long shot.....However according August home security 11 million people have had a package stolen in the last year. 70% of U.S. homeowners expect to receive packages during the holiday season. Also 61% receive more packages during the holidays than any other time of the year.
I for one will not let a thief take my packages. Imagine the gifts I bought just being taken from my front doorstep. What is the best way to protect yourself and your gifts? One good tip I can offer is to get a parcel or storage box that safely stores your package while you are not home to receive the delivery.
The great thing is you can place the parcel storage box anywhere you want. You can simply move and place the Package Vault anywhere outside to receive the gifts you have coming from Amazon.
Another big advantage from the Package Vault storage system is ease of setup. Designed to be installed in 15 minutes or less! Package Vault offers a Wifi sensor that communicates to your phone when a delivery has occurred. The App offers several notifications that keep you in touch. This makes it possible to monitor your home delivery from wherever you happen to be. When the family is away from home,the packages will be delivered and left in the open where thieves can quickly steel them! Packages left in the open are prime opportunities and the best way to prevent the crime is with a physical deterrence like Package Vault.
Package Vault prices start at $99. The average cost of Package theft according to a report by August was $100 dollars. Think about the price of electronics and how expensive they are. Apple phones and watches can easily reach $600 to 1,000 dollars. The price of prevention will easily pay for itself.
Never a contract and easy return policy that gives peace of mind.
What about Wireless HD Video Security Cameras?
Yes these can help prevent package theft, but they do not stop the actual theft. Take a look on YouTube how many package thefts have been recorded. Usually the thieves have their face covered or its hard to identify them. So the best solution is to have a physical prevention like a Package Vault storage box. This solution securely stores your gifts until you are ready to pick them up.
