GUELPH, Ontario (PRWEB) February 15, 2019
Danby Appliances’ newest product – Parcel Guard – has been named as a finalist for the IHA Global Innovation Awards in the smart home products category. Danby officially launched Parcel Guard last month and it has already been met with high praise by media and industry experts as an innovative yet simple solution to parcel theft and missed deliveries.
“Parcel Guard is our first venture into smart home technology and I’m thrilled about the reception it has received so far. I think 10 years from now, every home in North America will have a Parcel Guard, or something very similar,” says Jim Estill, CEO of Danby Appliances and the innovator behind Parcel Guard.
Each year 15 billion parcels are shipped and that number is expected to grow in 2019. Danby Parcel Guard is built to keep your online deliveries safe until you get home – no more worrying about “Porch Pirates” or missed deliveries. Your delivery driver simply opens Parcel Guard’s anti-theft drop slot and places your packages inside. Parcel Guard locks, and you’re notified through the app that your package is secure. Additional features include wireless connectivity, motion-activated IP camera, tamper alarm and weight monitor.
Finalists for the IHA Global Innovation Awards are evaluated on their innovation, appearance, user benefits, ecological responsibility, and market impact and positioning. Winners will be announced at the IHA’s 2019 Global Innovation Awards Gala on March 2. Danby will be showcasing Parcel Guard, as well as many other products at the International Home + Housewares Show from March 2-5, 2019 in Chicago, IL, booth number L11135.
During its official debut at CES in Las Vegas last month, Parcel Guard was named as one of the coolest products at the show by USA Today, and also received a TWICE Picks Award.
