Step 1: Set up
Set up is easy with the Porch Pod - you'll be up and running in minutes. Just unbox, set it on your porch, plug in to your home's power outlet or battery pack, secure it to your porch by filling the ballast area or connecting looping a cable lock through the attachment point, and connect to your home WiFi and create an account.
Step 2: Accept Deliveries
Instructions on the Porch Pod guide delivery drivers to scan your package's tracking bar code. Your Porch Pod uploads the tracking number to our servers, where we verify using a proprietary algorithm. When we're sure the delivery is legitimate - your Porch Pod will unlock - all in under 5 seconds - with no pre-programming, no cumbersome pin codes.
The Porch Pod can unlock for any legitimate delivery, so it's ideal for multiple deliveries - even if you're away for weeks at a time
Step 3: Collect your deliveries
When you arrive home, unlocking is as simple as scanning a 2D code from your smartphone.
You can also share temporary keys with friends or neighbors, allowing them to retrieve deliveries for you as well.
How it works and Frequently asked Questions
How does the Porch Pod work?
The Porch Pod secures deliveries by locking them safely in a weather proof, tamper resistant container.
The container is designed to open using a package's tracking code or a temporary code provided to local delivery drivers through our software. 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, etc.) or by connecting a cable lock (not included) through the attachement point on the rear of The Porch Pod.
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)
Can't a someone just use another package to open the Porch Pod?
No. Once a package is marked "delivered" by the carrier, our software prevents someone from using it to open a Porch Pod
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, Amazon, or USPS?
