Anyone who orders stuff from Amazon or other online sources knows that package theft is a big problem. Thieves all around the world walk up and steal packages off door steps all the time. If you don’t want to use that creepy system that lets drivers into your home to drop stuff off, check out BoxLock.

This is a fancy padlock that only opens for packages that are headed to your address. It works with a companion app, and supports bar codes from USPS, UPS, and FedEx delivery services. When the driver scans your package with the bar code reader on the bottom of the BoxLock it will pop open. The only trick is making sure that the local delivery driver is aware that you have the tech installed and how to use it.

The driver can then remove the lock off whatever secured container you are using and place the package inside and then lock it back up. The device works with any box that has a fixture for normal shank locks. It sells for $129.99 and is available via Amazon.
