It is certainly more noticeable because of some technological advances but thankfully I have not been impacted. Staying aware.

Ha! No baby. This is Arizona. You show up on my doorstep you may not like what you are met with. The sound of my dog trying to get through a steel security door is the least of your problems.

I purchased the RING and it was the BEST purchase I made. I also put one to the side of my garage door to watch my driveway and cars. The crystal clear video and ability to listen and talk through it is great. I did catch video of someone stealing from my neighbor and it worked to catch the guy.

We can have Amazon deliver to a local supermarket instead of our front porch.

Video surveillance can pay for itself in forestalling or helping to catch the porch pirates.

Thankfully my area is pretty secure and hard to see from the street.  So long as the UPS/Fedex person isn't an idiot and places the package at my door instead of on my driveway, I'm fine.  I'm usually home anyways, so not a big deal.

I you order from Amazon, Walmart, etc... here's what you do. You keep all your boxes. Make sure to open them carefully. Take the new content out and replace it with all the used crap you no longer need, all the stuff to throw away or donate. Sealed the boxes, leave at your front porch and leave as long.... as all gone. And voila, best way to clean up the house.

Thank god I don't have a problem like that in my neighborhood.

No I have not.

However, I have the BRANDED box in which my Epson printer was shipped. I keep thinking about setting a trap for a porch pirate. To be honest, I just have not made the time yet to have such fun.

The space by my front door has been modified to create secure placement of packages and they can not be seen from the street. However, it does not prevent the trolls from following the UPS truck.

Not yet since one of us is usually here. If we are not here, the post office re-delivers the next day and FedEx leaves a notice to pick up at Walgreens. I think both FedEx and UPS apps let you change the delivery time/date if needed but have not checked it out yet.
