How to ensure online shopping arrives safely

The days of heading out to your local high street for your shopping are becoming a thing of the past with the growth of online shopping. Consumers are opting for the ease of a click of a button in the comfort of their home to satisfy their spending habits.

While the convenience of online shopping is obvious there will be occasions where there’s a breakdown in communication or delivery logistics. Perhaps your last-minute package hasn’t turned up? The delivery company says your parcel has arrived, but it’s nowhere to be seen and your neighbours haven’t taken it in. How do you go about getting your package as quickly as possible?

Ideally you want to see what happens to your deliveries when you’re not there. Technology may not have yet advanced to the level to make cloning possible yet, but impressive devices can now help you to monitor a place where you can’t physically be. Video security software can keep track of what's going on at your home 24-7.

With the right home monitoring technology and these useful tips below, you'll have all the proof you need to show your package hasn’t disappeared into thin air!

Know when someone is on your property

Be aware if someone else comes to your door after the delivery person leaves. Advanced technology, such as Blink's HD video cameras, will send motion-activated alerts 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 got all the information you need.

Keep a record of the delivery date and time

It's important to request tracking information for your packages and receipts or order numbers. Knowing when and how your package was delivered helps you piece together the beginnings of where your package may have taken the wrong turn. Did someone sign for it? Or was it dropped off with a neighbour? Your records will help to speed up the process of getting your parcel returned. 

Have all the evidence you need

Blink's home monitoring and security cameras provide a watchful eye and one-click connection to your home. Become your own detective without the hassle. A Blink system is wireless, portable and easy to set up.
