Step #1: Verify Your Visitor


Stop Package Theft


You'll know your package is here when the delivery driver rings your doorbell camera, triggering an alert on your smartphone. Open your Alarm.com app for a live video view of the driver, then tap the microphone button to say hello.

Step #2: Direct Your Delivery

Stop Package Theft


If you're home but prefer not to go to the door right now, you can ask the driver to leave your package outside for you to pick up when they leave.

If you're away from home, you can ask the driver to leave it inside instead. Simply unlock your door using the lock icon that you'll see on your doorbell camera feed in your Alarm.com app. This action can disarm your security system too.

Step #3: Secure Your Door

Stop Package Theft

Once the delivery driver closes your door again with your package safely inside, use your Alarm.com app to lock up. As a final touch, re-arm your security system to ensure that your home is professionally protected for the rest of the day.
