Here at iParcelBox HQ it’s our mission to improve the parcel delivery experience, so that you never miss a delivery again.
You’ve told us that connecting cameras to your iParcelBox app can be “a bit of a faff”, which often involves modifying CCTV settings, setting up DDNS and changing router port forwarding.
We’ve therefore been working away in the background to find ways to improve the overall experience.

A note about security:
In a previous post, we discussed the steps we took to secure the iParcelBox platform, with the team at McAfee validating that iParcelBox is one of the most secure IoT devices available on the market.
One of the reasons we chose to work with EZVIZ is because they share this passion, and in 2019 the EZVIZ Cloud Platform achieved CSA STAR Certification, issued by the world’s leading organisation dedicated to defining cloud computing best practices. (read more).
