What is a Smart Mailbox?

Have you ever had a package stolen from your home? If so, then the new Danby Parcel Guard Smart Mailbox is for you!

What Does The Danby Parcel Guard Actually Do?

The Danby Parcel Guard sits in front of your house and acts as a hub for your parcels. You can open the smart mailbox with your smartphone and the motion-activated camera allows you to see if someone is in front of your house.

When FedEx, UPS or the US Postal Service delivers a package to you, they put the package in the smart mailbox and it drops down into the locked bottom compartment, where it is hidden and secured. You will receive a motion detection alert and delivery notification on your mobile device, along with a video. You can then open the device with your smartphone, a custom key code or a physical key.

A question someone asked me is “what would stop a crook from stealing the whole box?”

That would be very difficult: It has a loud tamper alarm that goes off when you try to remove the unit, a tamper notification is sent to the owner, and video is captured of the event. Also, the smart mailbox can be bolted to the ground or wall, or you can add weights in its false bottom.

Easy Setup

The smart mailbox comes fully assembled. All you do is remove it from the box, plug it in and connect with your smartphone using the Apple or Android App.

About Danby & Parcel Guard

Danby has been a leading distributor of compact appliances in North America for over 70 years.

The Danby Parcel Guard was highly acclaimed at CES last year and numerous publications have written about it.

The product weighs 49 pounds and comes in two colors — Grey and Beige. The dimensions are 19 x 15 x 39 inches.

For large items that need to be placed inside the box, the driver can be given a custom code and place the item directly into the bottom compartment. When the door is shut, the Parcel Guard locks and you’re alerted of a delivery. 

Danby Parcel Guard is awesome and can be purchased on Amazon for $399.
