Defeat package thieves with a combination of technology and steel!
Having packages stolen from your doorstep can be a big problem in a normal suburban neighbourhood, but when your front gate is at the end of a very long driveway in a remote area it’s even worse. Your packages could sit exposed by the side of the road for hours when you don’t even know they’ve been delivered.
SuperHouse forum member Guru_Of_Nothing was sick of package thieves taking his deliveries, so he’s started building a super-strong, high tech package vault:
The design is very clever because it covers various contingencies, including being able to open the box mechanically if there is a power failure, and handling multiple deliveries in a single day.
This is just the start of the project, so follow Guru’s progress on the forum at https://discourse.superhouse.tv/t/a-new-item-to-automate-the-mailbox/245/9
