The Easiest Way to Prove Package Theft

Waiting for a package that never comes can be one of the most frustrating, helpless feelings in the world. What's worse? The mail service provider has already marked it as delivered. So where is it if it's not at your home?

What Now?

Finding your package through the service provider requires filing lengthy claims in hopes that due-diligence is done even though you are probably one in a million.

Wouldn't it be amazing to be able to go back in time to see what happened? Well, we don't have a time machine, but there's a more proactive approach that you can rely on. Video security software has the ability to keep track of what's going on at your home 24-7. With the right home monitoring technology and these steps, you'll be able to prove that there's no possible way your package disappeared into thin air!

Step 1: Find and Record the Delivery Date and Time.

It's important to always request tracking information for your packages for instances such as these. Knowing when and how your package was delivered helps you piece together the beginnings of where your package "took its wrong turn." Did someone sign for it? Was it left at the curb? Was it left at your community club center? Or was it dropped off with a neighbor? Know these things before moving forward. You would hate to accuse someone of something for it to turn out to be a misunderstanding.

Step 2: Know Every Time Someone is on Your Property.

Know when the package handler comes to the door and if anyone else comes to the door after they leave. Advanced technology, such as Blink's HD video cameras, can send motion-activated alerts straight to your smartphone. You'll receive these notifications with a link to the video attached, so you can decide how to respond. Just like that, you've caught your culprit red-handed!

Step 3: You Have all the Evidence You Need!

Blink's home monitoring and security cameras provide a watchful eye and one-click connection to their home. Become your own detective without all the hassle.
