eufy Security, an emerging brand in home security, has unveiled the Smart Drop, a smart outdoor mailbox for the home with a built-in camera and advanced facial recognition technology. The Smart Drop brings an effortless, contactless and secure delivery experience to any home. With An Post having a similar non smart idea box we can attach to a wall this is much bigger more versatile and offers the consumer more choice and even more room for those bigger packages. 

According to a 2019 Package Theft Statistics Report, package theft is a growing problem across America, with 36% of respondents reporting having a package stolen at least once. In order to prevent package theft, multiple home security options such as security cameras and video doorbells have been made available by eufy. But leaving packages sitting on the front porch unattended is still risky.
