Smart phone reinvented for a safer home
Let’s face it: on any given day, you are probably more worried about someone making away with those shiny new shoes you bought online than someone actually breaking into your house. Alfred to the rescue! Who knew the idea of home security can be easily converted into a device that keeps your mind at ease?
What I call delivery roulette. All too often I nervously glance at my UPS/ Fed Ex tracking information waiting for updates on if my packages were delivered and then rush home to make sure no one has taken them as they had been left on the front doorstep. With the volume of parcels we receive this has become a daily chore.
With Alfred’s motion detection snapshot I get an instant notification the moment the delivery is made. With an electronic peephole on our door and an Alfred monitoring the display I can see exactly what time my packages were delivered and more importantly make sure no one else takes them while i’m at work.
Recently we had a delivery which was marked as delivered by UPS. Upon coming home the package was not there. Normally I would be out an item but with Alfred I reviewed the days event’s and found that the package was never dropped off. A call to UPS and I was able to verify that the driver had mistakenly marked the item as delivered. The very next day they dropped it off as expected.
Another camera positioned on the outside window captures any and all vehicles entering our sub division. Projecting this to our bedroom tv via Chromecast I can keep an eye out for the delivery truck from anywhere. No more missed deliveries because we didn’t hear the door bell.
It is mind-blowing to realize that with Alfred, the idea of home security can be extended to your new purchases that have not made their way into your home, yet. It’s interesting how one app can lead so many different stories, and lead us to meet so many talented people with unbounded creativity. What is your Alfred story? We’d love to hear how you use Alfred or if Alfred has been helpful. Oh, and of course, download Alfred and give us a five-star review if you haven’t already.
