7 (4) Ways to Keep Packages From Being Stolen Off Your Porch [CNET]

Full article here.

1. Let Amazon Into Your Home

Between Alexa and this, Amazon is hellbent on trying to enter into your home and invade your living space.

Thankfully, Amazon Key is not available in all cities, and you must be a Prime member, so it's not a concern for me.

2. Get a Front Porch Camera

But make sure thieves can't see it. It's also helpful in seeing which FedEx delivery drivers don't wait for a signature on medicine you need to live that has a 1k$ copay.

3. Something Called a BoxLock

It's a barcode scanner that locks your mailbox and only opens when a package you are expecting arrives. That's neat, but a bit costly. How many packages do you expect to make it worth it?

4. Get it Delivered To Your Office

In the growing world of freelancers, Uber and Lyft Drivers, DoorDash, etc, your office might be all over the city.

For those who find employment in an office, sure you could do that, but you need to know what time packages and mail is delivered. Often, packages will be handed from UPS or Fedex to the local post office, and those times can vary wildly.

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
