Most neighbors are too busy with their own lives to worry about a package being taken from your porch, and then on top of watching the house they have to decide if it’s worth their time intervening, because for all they know the package is being taken by a friend or family member that you asked to grab the package for you. And then by the time you report the theft on your Neighbor App its way to late, because the most you’re likely to get is a neighbor telling you, “yeah I saw them from my Ring and I think the car was dark blue, but it might have been black, and the guy looked to be between 16 & 35 years old, and I totally saw the whole thing, but I thought it was your brother coming to grab the package for you” ,…this doesn’t help anyone.
I really wish it was as simple as using your Neighbor App and as simply asking your neighbors for help, but its not, like I said, your neighbors are way to busy with their own crap to worry about watching anyone’s house for suspicions package activity, let alone to asking them to simply grab the make, model, color and plate number of the car that the pirates are driving…if it were that easy why do most people that have their package stolen throw the video up on their Neighborhood app and social media page asking for help catching the morons that stole their package(s) receive little to no results.
I have yet to find a Ring or any other house Cam, HD, 4K or otherwise, that when mounted on the front door or front of the house be able to can catch the most important incriminating detail needed to track down and bust these guys…a plate number and a detailed look at their faces, now that’s something that the police can really sink their teeth in and use to track and find these dirt bags.
Wyze is one the most innovative and technically savvy and forward thinking players in the residential consumer cam sector, and if anyone could come up with a Mailbox Cam or idea similar its Wyze.
All that being said I do thank you for the words of advice and wisdom, it is much appreciated.
