They're both $200 bucks, not cheap but I have a regular Nest cam indoors and it's great.
Yeah, ups doesn't here. And i rarely use my front door, so I just have to randomly check when I expect something
he tried, but the package kept getting stolen.

Either can be had in the $150-200 range.
I detest "porch pirates".
Video surveillance of your delivery area is the only thing you can do.
I live in an apartment building in the middle of downtown that you can easily get into without being a resident. I had packages stolen so often that I would only order things that I knew would be delivered on the weekend and then I would head down to the lobby (where they were dropped off) every 30 minutes to see if it had been delivered. It was annoying. Fortunately, they just set up a "parcel pending" system that texts you when the package arrives and gives you a code to enter to get it out of a locker.
Leave your door open and a note for the UPS driver to pull it shut after he drops it off
But seriously.......maybe leave a lock box type of container or chest that can be locked by the driver
Sign for everything.
If not home. Then you gotta pick it up!
Tell the delivery guy to gently place the package in the middle of this
I believe UPS will let you send it to the a UPS store/center and hold it there for you to come pick up.
You can ship it to friends or family members who are home during the day.
You can also ship it to where you work if you work in an office and depending on the type of work you do.
As a last resort, you could leave a note for the delivery guy to put deliveries in another location rather than at your front door.
People that steal your packages ....
"This whole thing....... really .........fudging SUCKS!"
Quit living in the ghetto.
If you haven't done so yet, you can file a claim with UPS too.
Coward? Lmao. OK. Do you normally get this visibly upset with stranger comments not even aimed at you?
This. I occasionally have packages sent to my local FedEx office and retrieve them there. If I were to have something stolen, that would become my modus operandi.
Your comment was pretty hard not to grasp and was applied to everybody? Just calling it like I see it. Would you like to expand on your thought instead? Least you wouldn't be trolling...no cowardice, etc.
I have a 600 foot driveway, seems to help.
Be careful give a couple of days before claiming theft. Amazon is notorious for using FedEx/UPS who drops it at USPS and USPS delivers the last leg.
