If you watched the news during the Christmas holidays you probably saw some video of a package being stolen off of someone’s porch. This is an all too common issue during the holiday season and is becoming more prevalent during the non-holiday times with online ordering and delivery growing. The Package Guard Kickstarter project hopes to add a layer of protection to your home package delivery. The Package Guard is a Frisbee-sized device that you leave by your door as a landing spot for your packages. Once the package is set on The Package Guard, it becomes armed and notifies you that a delivery has been made to The Package Guard via email or text message. Once armed, removing a package from The Package Guard activates an audible alarm and sends an alert to your smartphone. There are several pledge points for The Package Guard, with a pledge of $50 getting you The Package Guard. This project is seeking funding until April 8, 2016, and if successfully funded will ship in the September/October 2016 time frame.
