Package Delivery Monitoring System - Based on the Experiences of the Author

Clifford T Johnson, P.E., CSE

Our modern day is fraught with petty crime including the theft of packages from the front steps. There are many security systems in the marketplace, some very expensive that do a good job but are not affordable by everyone out there needing them. I am a person that uses online firms to supply much of my needs in my elderly days, so I began testing some of the wireless cameras in the marketplace. Bear in mind, I am somewhat of a computer specialist and quite familiar with the various types of networks that are being used and know that most of us have computers and Wi-Fi systems, if not smart phones. I did try several wireless systems and was not at all pleased with them; I did return them for credit. One of the cameras had a built- signal generator and came with a receiver that could be connected to a TV or a computer, unfortunately there are so many signals running in a household with smart phones and computers that the signal was not stable. I settled on the one that I'm going to recommend in a very detailed manner to give those that are not intimate with computers, routers and networks a head start.

BTW: I do have a Swann security system installed inin addition to the wireless camera and you may wonder why I didn't use it. The reason is because I wanted a camera that would send me an alarm to my smart phone when it detected motion, where as the security systems such as a Swann simply record the event. There purpose is primarily to monitor the home for break-ins and send an alarm to the police.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
