With Cyber Monday over, many shoppers are now expecting deliveries. Here are some tips to get your items safely delivered in time for the holidays. Buy an outdoor security camera or a video doorbell camera. What if you can't afford a security system? Putting up a fake sign pretending you have a camera is enough to scare thieves away. Have your packages routed to a FedEx, UPS or Amazon delivery site. Request that a signature must be provided when a package is delivered. Sign up for delivery alerts so you can track your package until it reaches your doorstep.
