There shouldn’t be any dark places where burglars can hide or not be seen in your property. The lights should be on as soon as people walk into an area, whether it’s motion light or constantly on. Burglars will not feel confident to steal packages if the property is well-lit. 

 

Tip #2 – Video cameras

Whether it is real or fake, it would be a big difference for burglars if they think that they’re being seen on camera. Putting up a warning sign saying that they are on camera will also help you add protection.

 

 

Tip #3 – Move your mailbox inside

Probably the best thing that you could do is to move your mailboxes inside. You can give the key to a trusted postman from the US postal service. In that way, the postman will have only access to your building and leave the packages inside. That’s probably the best way to be able to protect any packages from being stolen. It’s very affordable as well.

 

Let’s recap!

 

Having good lighting, cameras, and moving the mailbox inside are three affordable ways that we can recommend to stop burglars from stealing packages at your property.
