Porch Thefts can be stopped effectively anywhere 

“Lobby Looters, Porch Pirates, Porch Thieves – they have many names. They are constantly on the lookout for unsecured packages.
Smart lockers put the game in favor of victims.”

Every year, billions of dollars are lost to stolen packages. During the pandemic, 11 million Americans alone lost their unattended parcels to spying porch looters. The problem has seen an uptrend for multifamily units as well as independent houses. 

Despite deterrents like security guards or even CCTV surveillance, porch pirates have evolved their strategies to loot valuable packages – ruining the experience for customers via lost money and time. 

Porch piracy has become so common, that 41% of people would rather avoid shopping online during the holiday season, while 20% of them would prefer to arrive home early to receive their ordered valuables. 

Isn’t this scenario too taxing on the citizens?

Greater the Package Volume, Greater the Vulnerability 

From a porch pirate’s point of view, the holiday season would be an ideal time to score more unattended packages. Lobbies, doorsteps, and mailrooms are usually the hotspots for package thefts. Holiday season observes a large inflow of gifts and parcels – the perfect opportunity for the looters.

If your residents experience more than one incident of package theft, surely it will affect their decision to continue tenancy. Not only does a stolen package translate into monetary loss, but also a sense of weak security surrounding the building. Why would a resident live with that feeling chipping constantly on their shoulder?  

Unattended Packages in Lobby May Attract Costly Fines! 

Moreover, multiple porch piracy incidents can be a costly affair for Property Managers. Canada, for instance, has recently moved a legislative motion to impose a fine of $100,000 on Property Managers in case the lying porch packages become a tripping hazard for the building residents. 

That means unattended packages may come even with bigger, potentially damaging hidden costs.
