Protecting Your Packages from Theft

Posted on December 22nd, 2018 by Alert Protective

There’s no doubt that the holiday season is one of the busiest in terms of packages. Unfortunately, for many, their packages get delivered only to get stolen from their doorstep. As one of the top security companies in Chicago, nothing is worse than hearing about packages being stolen when there are measures that can prevent this from happening. Here are some suggestions that will give you peace of mind.

Install a Camera

Installing a security camera system that has a view of your front porch is a great way to keep an eye on your packages. Plus, even the sight of a security camera that is watching your front porch may be enough to keep thieves away. If you prefer to install a video doorbell, this is an option as well. Regardless of if you’re home or away, you’ll always have eyes on your package.

Post a Sign

An old-fashioned warning sign that states your property is under 24-hour surveillance is intimidating to potential thieves. This visible deterrent is another layer of protection against your packages.

Send Packages to a Secure Location

If you are determined that your packages won’t get stolen no matter what, you can try sending them to a secure location such as a pick-up location near you or even your place of work. It may be an extra step to go pick up your package, but it can be worth it, especially if the item you ordered is expensive.

You don’t have to sit back and continue to have your packages stolen from your doorstep! Contact our security company in Chicago to explore your options!
