Danby Parcel Guard Smart Mailbox {Giveaway}

I was recently introduced to the Danby Parcel Guard Smart Mailbox, and I love this product idea. With online ordering being so prevalent in our lives nowadays, we receive packages and parcels at home almost daily, especially now, with holiday season shopping in full force.

Danby Parcel Guard Smart Mailbox {Giveaway}

Now, what happens when you are not home to receive your parcels? Or when you are away on holiday? Do you ever worry about package theft, missed deliveries or your boxes being damaged by the rain? Hello Raincouver!

The Danby Parcel Guard is the answer.

This modern-day mailbox allows for couriers and delivery people to place your packages and boxes inside the anti-theft drop slot. Your package then goes inside into the locked area that can only be opened by you when you get home. So genius!

Made of industrial-grade, weather-proof plastic, this unit has a 3-hour battery backup in case of a power outage.


The best part is that the Danby Parcel Guard has a built-in-motion-activated camera and a tamper alarm to ensure porch pirates stay away for good. The video feed can be played live on your smartphone via their free app and that way, you can always see what’s happening in your front step. You will also get notifications whenever packages are delivered, and you can unlock the box from wherever you are. 

I love that you can even add a unique code to unlock the bottom door of the unit so delivery drivers can place larger boxes and packages below. 

The Parcel Guard comes ready to use out of the box, and it can also be secured to the ground for extra protection. Each Danby Parcel Guard comes with 24 months parts and labour coverage with in-home service. 


Danby Parcel Guard Smart Mailbox {Giveaway}

If you want peace of mind during the holiday season and you don’t want to worry about having your holiday packages stolen from your front porch, the world’s smartest mailbox is for you.

You can learn more and purchase one online HERE. The Danby Parcel Guard is also available at select stores, including Costco, The Brick, Best Buy, The Source, and more. This product is available for $549 for the smart mailbox, and $349 for a basic (non-connected).

  16. Too funny, I was JUST looking at this online yesterday! I would love to win because I love online shopping and get lots of deliveries that I worry about when we’re not home. Several neighbours have had their packages swiped (one awful thief opened all the boxes, took all the contents, and taped the boxes back up to make it look like nothing was amiss!!). This would put my mind at ease!

  17. I would like to win this terrific prize because parcels that are delivered to our home are visible & accessible from the street, with not protection from bad weather. This Danby parcel guard smart mailbox would ensure our parcels are safe & secure.

We are on a street with busy foot traffic as we are on the pathway to the train station.

  30. wow that would be really cool things to have. I get missing packages because theyt ver put them in the same place and then they get wet if it’s raining.

  31. We live in relatively quiet area, unfortunately thieves are doing the rounds. They even stole a car that was parked on the street opposite our house. The thieves tossed out shoes, a blanket and anything else they couldn’t use themselves that were in the car onto the grass verge. This wonderful parcel guard would just do that, guard our parcels and we do get quite a few delivered. It’s mainly the firms who do deliveries that never bother ringing the 2 doorbells and I’m at home most of the time. I’ve complained often but with no better result. 🙁

  32. Gahhh!! I didn’t know this even existed!! I need one because online shopping is my life! Thanks.🤞🏼

  40. I’d like to win because I just accept the fact that a parcel may be stolen…this way I don’t have to think that way!

  41. I would like to win this so I can protect my parcels

  53. Love to win this for my friend who is often ill and bed-ridden

  54. a few of the Delivery companies do not knock or ring the bell, the packages are just left at the front door and if I do not see or hear them they sit there . So the Danby Parcel Guard Smart Mailbox would be very useful!

  55. I think this is a great idea and would love to win it!

  56. It would give me a better feeling about ordering online.

  57. What an innovative, incredible idea! I never know if packages will require a signature or will be left on my doorstep. I live in an area with a lot of kids who unfortunately WILL steal packages if they see them. This idea is truly a great one.

  58. I need this for my teen kids always shopping.

  59. Since I have work I can honestly say that I buy much more online. I would need some kind of shelter as a form of security.

  94. We order a lot of stuff online and this would be a great way to ensure our packages are there when we get home. We work 9-5 so there’s a period where we are not home when packages arrive. There was once a woman who just came to our porch after a large package was delivered. Luckily my husband worked from home to bring it into the house or else our package might have been taken.

  114. Some of my neighbours have had their parcels stolen in the past and I think that this would be a great example for them in how to protect and secure their parcels, as well as be something that I would utilize. This would be a great prevention method to avoid holiday parcel theft.
