A growing number of smart home devices allow homeowners to monitor deliveries without actually being at home. For instance, the hardwired Nest Hello video doorbell has high-definition resolution, a live video feed, and motion alerts. The Nest Aware subscription cloud service provides access to facial recognition, so users can create a database of familiar faces and receive custom alerts when particular visitors come. Nest Aware’s video footage can also help neighbors and, if needed, law enforcement identify who is burglarizing holiday deliveries. Movable, battery-powered remote security cameras include the weatherproof Arlo Pro 3, which comes with a charger. Integrated porch light-security cameras are an emerging smart home security category. The Ring Spotlight Cam, the Netatmo Presence, and the Ring Floodlight Cam all combine smart lighting with smart video monitoring. Users can watch a live video feed, receive motion alerts, and talk to people via two-way audio intercoms. Amazon Prime members in certain areas can use the Amazon Key service, which delivers Amazon packages inside the home. A similar in-home delivery service is offered by August Access, while BoxLock features a smart padlock and app used by BoxLock delivery partners such as UPS, FedEx, Amazon Prime, and USPS. | Read More
