Step #1: Verify Your Visitor

You'll know your package is here when the delivery driver rings your doorbell camera, triggering an alert on your smartphone. Open your smart home app for a live video view of the driver, then tap the microphone button to say hello.

Step #2: Direct Your Delivery

If you're home but prefer not to go to the door right now, you can ask the driver to leave your package outside for you to pick up when they leave.

If you're away from home, you can ask the driver to leave it inside instead. Simply unlock your door using the lock icon that you'll see on your doorbell camera feed in your smart home app. This action can disarm your security system too.

Step #3: Secure Your Door

Once the delivery driver closes your door again with your package safely inside, use your smart home app to lock up. As a final touch, re-arm your security system to ensure that your home is professionally protected for the rest of the day.
