Unlike the other house, where we were fairly far off the road - which was a plus and minus - no one could see any package when it was delivered.
This, you can see from the street if a package is on the front porch. And while our delivery requests all say 'please deliver to the back of the house' it's only about a 50 / 50 chance that actually happens.
We have had no issues with any packages missing, or.people being on-site when they shouldn't be.
710 felt better if we had one them doorbell cams.
At best, I was on the fence about the entire thing.
I think it's a little invasive. While delivery and mail folks might be used to so many people having these things, it just weirds me out a bit. I'm not sure I want people knowing I drove past their house at 17:13 on a Monday, And while I always pick up dog poop, do I want them knowing Shep went on their lawn in the first place?
Let's not forget - what if my outfit wasn't coordinated and I had on a black belt and brown shoes. Oh the horror!!! The humiliation.
Never mind that on a Saturday or Sunday morning walk, chances of me being in grey sweat pants is high. Like, off the charts high.
Allegedly, you can change the settings so you don't get alerts from the cars driving by, or the animal highway that seemingly happens all hours of the night.
We have a possum (see above), a skunk, Walter the cat, who just criss cross our front yard all night long. 710 woke up to like seven alerts the next morning of 'activity'. All critters of some kind. Not a robber to be had.
I exit and enter through the backdoor (jokes not needed here) so, when 710 starts to think we need another at that point of egress, I might balk.
