Coming soon to homes everywhere: The InBin Parcel Box
There’s not a lot to share other than we are feverishly at work to make the InBin a reality. We’re on track to bring the first InBin to life by the end of 2017 with a launch date of early 2018. InBin – coming soon to homes everywhere!
The Problem: Package Theft & Misdeliveries
Every day throughout homes everywhere in the US, people are receiving packages of all types from a variety of retailers, shippers, carriers and delivery companies. What they all have in common is an address, but what they are all missing is a single delivery point where to securely place the package.
The United Stated Post Office (USPS) calls this a secure location – the place where a package can securely be placed. Ideally, the mailbox (but that is only accessible to them – not FedEx, UPS or others). If it doesn’t fit, they resort to finding their own “secure location” at the property – in front of the the front door. And that’s not secure at all.
The issue at hand today like never before are the limitless deliveries people receive (many receive several packages a day) and they all pile up in front of the home. We call this package piles. Regardless how many packages are present in front of a home, the same problem persists – package theft.
These package thieves have been branded Porch Pirates by the media for good reason. They come and go and often go undetected. Nearly 20 million packages between 2017 and 2018 will be stolen by package thieves. This needs to end.
Another major problem: misdeliveries. With so many different delivery services, it’s not wonder packages randomly disappear OR are never delivered to their proper destination. This needs to end to0.
These problems will come to an end as the InBin is coming soon to homes everywhere.
The Solution – an InBin!
The InBin Parcel Box will help transform the front of every home or business by giving people a final delivery location that helps protect packages from prying eyes, thieves and porch pirates.
The InBin IQ will also connect the owner with both delivery carriers, retailers and shippers everywhere. It keeps them connected to important delivery details, alerts and notifications throughout the day. Misdeliveries can be a thing of the past.
Finally, the InBin will allow the owner to connect directly with new delivery services in the future that include crowd-sourced delivery carriers.

The InBin Team
Everyone agrees: package theft is on the rise and while package theft statistics vary among sources, it’s something that impacts everyone. The Package Theft Statistics Report proves everyone needs to be concerned about the rise in theft as people shift their buying behavior from brick-and-mortar to various ecommerce sites online, mobile commerce, social commerce and real-time commerce. Gone are the days of waiting weeks for your catalog purchase to arrives. Simply click and buy and it’s in front of your front door in days and soon within minutes.
A recent Package Theft Statistics Report was prepared the end of 2016 by August Home – a smart door lock company which looks to prove why you need a new sophisticated lock to let delivery companies into your home. Throughout 2017, several companies including Walmart and Amazon both announced plans to roll-out these smart doorlock solutions to allow their delivery people into your home with your order. While the statistics prove the need for greater security over package dl3iveries resulting in package theft, the approach InBin takes is different.
Package Theft Statistics Report: 2016/2017
The InBin Parcel Box protects packages and provides enhanced security and delivery options through what we call a smart mailbox foir your packages. Changing your doorlock and providing access to possible strangers isn’t for most people. Most home owners are not prepared to let strangers into their home to deliver their package or groceries. The InBin solves this challenge outside the home – in front of your home’s front door.
