Tips on How to Ensure the Safety and Security of Your Parcels
Often times, your deliveries from Amazon, UPS or FedEx arrive when you’re not home. You may be at the grocery store, work or in school. Because life happens, and you may not be able to get them at the time of delivery, they usually end up being left on your doorstep. Unfortunately, this leaves a window of opportunity for thieves to come and steal your packages. This is a huge reason to set up a security system through a Bay Area Security Company before the holiday shopping begins.
There are many ways to ensure that your package does not fall into the hands of thieves. Here are a few:
1. Smart locks
Smart locks are great if your delivery arrives while you aren’t home, because you can ask your neighbor to put the packages in your house. The advantage of a smart lock is that you can enter the password, allow your neighbor to drop off the package then later lock the doors.
2. Smart Doorbells
Smart bells can also help to secure your package when you are not there to receive it. Given that they are enabled with both the communication and watching feature it makes the process convenient. When your delivery arrives, you will get a notification after a knock. That way, you can be able to give further instructions, to the person who is making the delivery as to where they should place is.
3. An Alarm Response Program
This is a thoughtful way of ensuring that your package, and home, remains safe. If an alarm goes off, the professional response officer from the Santa Cruz Security Company will rush to your home and secure the premise. This is a great strategy that can keep thieves off your property.
4. Video surveillance
Video surveillance not only ward off thieves but they can also help you to identify them should you lose your package. Security surveillance is increasingly becoming popular among homeowners who would like to look after the security of their homes 24/7.
5. Provide further instruction
In addition to having a security system, you can give out additional directions to be followed when delivering your package. For instance, you can ask that the person delivering should get a signature before leaving the package at the doorstep or you can simply request a neighbor or friend that you trust to receive the package on your behalf.

However, the term has managed to raise the level of fear to extreme rates whereby everyone feels like they will be the next victim, when in reality; this sort of crime has a low probability of actually happening.
