How it works and Frequently asked Questions
How does the Porch Pod work?
The Porch Pod secures packages from being stolen by locking them safely in a weather proof, tamper resistant container.
The container is designed to open using a package's tracking code. The Porch Pod connects to our servers using your home's WiFi connection. When a tracking code is scanned, we verify it. If it is a legitimate delivery to your home, your Porch Pod will unlock to allow the delivery driver to place the package inside.
Once you arrive home, you can unlock your Porch Pod using your smartphone or tablet.
What are the dimensions?
The outside dimensions of the Porch Pod are 30" Wide x 18" Deep x 20" Tall.
This large size will handle over 96% of residential deliveries and has capacity for multiple smaller packages, while not taking up too much space on your porch.
What's keeping someone from just stealing the Porch Pod?
The Porch Pod is secured by filling the base with a ballast material - rocks, sand, or concrete.
When assembled, your Porch Pod will weigh nearly 200 lbs - more than enough to deter theft.
If that's not enough, you always have the option to anchor your Porch Pod to your porch using concrete or wood anchors (not included)

Do I have to be expecting a delivery?
No. You don't have to tell us or your Porch Pod to be on the lookout for a delivery.
How do you work with UPS, FedEx, DHL, or USPS?
