Know When a Package Arrives on Your Porch
HomeKit Secure Video Cameras can already differentiate between people, animals, and vehicles (which is a useful way to avoid recording needless clips of squirrels running around your backyard), but now iOS 15 and tvOS 15 have a fourth category to detect when a package arrives at your door.
This allows you to trigger recordings and notifications on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, or Apple TV when a package appears on your doorstep so that you’ll know when the delivery you’ve been waiting for has arrived.
As with people, animals, and vehicles, you can also configure one or more of your HomeKit cameras to only record or deliver notifications for packages and ignore other types of motion.
To set this up you’ll need a HomeKit Secure Video Camera, but it doesn’t specifically have to be a Doorbell Camera — any camera that supports HKSV will work, from Anker’s Eufy series of security cameras to Logitech’s Circle View Wired Doorbell.
