    I agree = put up the camera but not the sign. Are you leaving the window shade up too?

    Do you have a neighbor that can accept the package for you?

    Maybe next time you can get it delivered to your place of employment.

    I don't believe in warnings. Just do it.

    It's inconvenient but safer to have all packages require a signature. If no one's home they take the package back to their depot and leave you a note to come get it.
    At least that's what I do nowadays.
    I even stopped my daily newspaper because someone stole it 5 out of 7 days weekly.
    These kind of people make me sick.
    I'm old enough to remember not having to lock our house up or our cars etc. What's happened?

    I would normally not put the sign up but these deliveries are Christmas presents. What is my goal? To get the presents for my family or to catch a thief? It's more important to me to get the Christmas presents.

    The laptop won't be visible. I have a box to put over it to keep the cat off of it and I will close the blinds behind the camera.

    That is sad. I hope you get them on video. A friend of my family had left her house to go shopping. When she returned, a thief was running out of her house with her tv under his arm and almost knocked her down. She identified him but now she does not feel safe in her own home.

    I've been seeing almost daily on the news that happening around Houston, this time of year really brings the creeps out and stuff like that just keeps driving the prices up for those of us who actually pay for things
