How to Secure Porch Against Package Thieves

Clever Porch Hacks For Homeowners to Fight Back Against Package Thieves

If you're an Amazon Prime addict — don't be afraid to admit it — you've likely experienced delivery anxiety when traveling out of town or working late. Especially during the holiday season, package thieves are out in droves, which means that deliveries are being stolen more than ever while homeowners are away. But in Washington, several of these theft victims have had enough; instead of losing more parcels to brazen porch thieves, homeowners are getting creative to prevent crime on their doorsteps.

While one porch hack (a booby-trapped package rigged to set off a gunshot noise) is a bit extreme for most, others mentioned in this video are smart ideas. Whether you decide to invest in a doorbell that lets you interact with people who step onto your porch, or simply mount security cameras that will help police identify thieves, this video will surely inspire some ideas for protecting your next delivery. Say "bye-bye" to pesky package robbers!
