Nationally, 84% of homeowners shop online and 20% buy items weekly and it is a growing trend. A package tracking and notification system would electronically check-in an item, safely secure the package and automatically notify the recipient via text and email that their package is in the locker. A package tracking and notification system can be leased with service is provided by the supplier - it would not necessarily be a capital expense to the Association.
