A new system hopes to thwart so-called ‘porch pirates' those who steal parcels left by delivery drivers. The Snare Parcel Protection System fits securely outside your front door. A strong cable extends from it, which a courier is able to wrap around most sized parcels. The parcel owner is then able to unlock the mechanism with a key. Entrepreneur Dennis Evans, of Edmonton, Canada, believes it deters thieves who want easy pickings. The system is being crowdfunded through Kickstarter.
