Proactively Protect Your Packages with the Vivint Doorbell Camera Pro

For millions of people in the United States, online shopping is a way of life. But with it comes some risks–including package theft.  

Luckily, you don't have to be home every time a package arrives in order to protect it from porch pirates. The Vivint Doorbell Camera Pro (Gen 2) proactively protects your packages and keeps you connected to your front porch.

What is porch piracy? 

More than 36% of online shoppers have fallen victim to porch pirates, or thieves who steal packages right from a home's doorstep. 

While porch piracy tends to peak in the November and December holiday season, it is growing year-round everywhere. The Denver area, for example, has seen a 68% increase in package theft in the past few years. 

Victims of porch theft don't always have a lot of recourse, especially if the company's tracking information shows the package delivery actually occurred. Many delivery drivers also take photos of the package on your doorstep as proof. 

If your package is stolen, whether or not you'll be reimbursed comes down to the shipper's policy. Oftentimes, this is a lengthy process that includes filing a police report or insurance claim. Even then, there is still no guarantee you will get your money or items back. 

At the end of the day, the best way to protect your packages is by taking a proactive approach.

Keep packages safe with the Doorbell Camera Pro Gen 2

Most of us can't sit at home all day waiting for our package delivery to arrive. We have places to be and lives to live. That's where the Doorbell Camera Pro Gen 2 can help. 

The Vivint Doorbell Camera Pro Gen 2 is the only video doorbell camera with the optics, intelligence, and deterrent to proactively protect your packages. 

Take a look at the unique features that work together to make sure your packages stay on your porch: 

Smart Deter package protection

Smart Deter is the driving force behind the Doorbell Camera Pro's proactive package protection. Here’s how it works: 

  • When a delivery person approaches your door, the camera’s person detection is activated, which sends you a notification of activity at your front door, so you’ll know your package was delivered. 
  • If someone later approaches your package, Smart Deter goes to work. It immediately lets the person at your doorstep know they’ve been spotted by activating camera’s light and sound deterrent–a bright LED ring around the camera and a warning tone from the camera’s 90 DB speaker.

With Smart Deter, potential porch pirates know they've been spotted and are being recorded. And since the last thing a thief wants is attention, it's an effective way to keep your home and packages safe. 

Package notifications 

Doorbell Camera Pro Gen 2 keeps you in the know wherever you are. You'll be notified on your smartphone when a delivery person makes a stop at your house. You'll also get notified when someone approaches your package delivery.

Two-way audio and one-way video 

You can also speak to your visitor right from your phone or from the Vivint Smart Hub. Thanks to the video doorbell's two-way audio and one-way video feature, you can immediately answer your door or speak to a visitor. So if someone wants to snatch a package off your porch, you can let them know yourself that you see them. 

Smarter detection 

The camera's person detection feature captures activity around your front porch, but it's also smart enough to differentiate between people and passing cars or animals. This means you won't receive notifications on your phone every time a person walks down the sidewalk or a car drives by your house. 

Everything you need in a doorbell camera

In addition to package protection, the Doorbell Camera Pro Gen 2 includes a number of other features that make it best in its class, including: 

Widest, tallest field of view available 

Doorbell Camera Pro Gen 2 features an exclusive 180x180 lens that provides the widest, tallest view available. This means you can see your entire porch, top to bottom and side to side. Even your tallest visitors will be easy to see. This wide field of vision allows you to see important details, like license plate numbers or vehicle descriptions.

Clear picture day or night 

When it comes to a doorbell camera, the quality of video is one of the most important features. With the Doorbell Camera Pro Gen 2, not only can you see your entire porch, but you can see it clearly day or night. The camera boasts 1080p HDR resolution and infrared night vision that you can stream right from your phone. Best of all, your picture stays clear even as you zoom in.

Smart Clips for the whole picture 

If you're like most people, you can't always answer the door–in person or virtually. That's where recorded clips come in handy. With Vivint Smart Clips, you can still see what happened when a visitor approached your home. Even better, Smart Clips won't leave you hanging–they start recording once a person or package is detected and won't stop until the action does.
