How Supreme Can Help Prevent Package Theft During the Holidays
In 2015, 205 million U.S. citizens bought merchandise online at least once, according to Statista. That results in a lot of packages being delivered, and as a result, a lot more threats to home security as packages are left sitting on front porches. According to the National Retail Federation, more than 103 million people shopped online on Thanksgiving weekend alone last year.
“It is clear that the age-old holiday tradition of heading out to stores with family and friends is now equally matched in the new tradition of looking online for holiday saving opportunities,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay in this blog post.
Online shopping saves us time and energy, and it’s great, but an expensive package sitting on your front porch can act as an invitation to a burglar. In the past, a signature was required for most expensive package deliveries, but nowadays you can authorize packages to be left without a signature as many families have both parents working. This means that TVs and other obviously valuable items may be sitting in plain sight on your porch during the day. According to The Huffington Post, 23 million people have had packages stolen from residences, and of the more than six billion packages shipped yearly in the US, 40 percent miss their delivery window.
This leads us to the next logical question: what can I do about this?
The biggest deterrent to package theft may very well be a video surveillance system. According to a study conducted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, 60 percent of convicted burglars surveyed stated the mere presence of a security camera system influenced their decision to target a different home.
