Got a porch pirate problem? Packages are delivered to your doorstep, but someone snatches them before you can bring them inside. It's frustrating, but you're not alone. More than one-third of Americans report having had at least one package stolen from outside their homes, and police say that the coronavirus pandemic has actually worsened this problem, since so many people are ordering products online.
If you've had it with package theft and are looking for a fix, you should consider getting a smart mailbox (also called smart parcel box or smart package box). These boxes, which are accessible only to people who scan a code or enter a passcode, hold your packages securely until you’re ready to take them inside.
Made of steel, this box measures 18.1 by 18.1 by 22.63 inches, so it’s large enough for many packages, but doesn’t take up too much room.
