Shopping online is more popular than ever given its ease and convenience–at least as far as the purchasing part goes. The delivery end can often be problematic. If you’re not willing and able to stay home for a valuable package, it’s left on your doorstep–a prime target for package thieves.
There is a solution from Mountain Alarm and Alarm.com. Secure a delivered package in three easy steps–even when you’re away from home–using our smart home security system and app.
Verify the Visitor
You’ll know someone’s at the door when the delivery driver rings your doorbell camera. This triggers an alert on your smartphone, from which you can open a video screen to see who’s at the door. Tap the microphone icon on your app’s doorbell camera screen to start a two-way conversation.
Direct the Delivery
Once you have verified the person’s identity, grant him or her access with your Alarm.com app. First, disarm your security system. Then unlock your front door’s smart lock. You can do it all from the same screen. Ask them to leave the package inside the door.
Secure the Door
Once the package is inside and the door is closed, it only takes a couple of taps to re-secure your house by locking the door and arming the system. Your package is now safe and protected along with everything else in your home. If you prefer to use your garage as the drop-off point, you can do that too with the app and a smart garage door controller.
We can easily add a doorbell camera, smart lock, and garage door controller to your home security system. Call 1-888-349-3455 today to learn more.
