Those who steal packages probably do it multiple times to multiple homes. Our ring cameras should be able to capture who the thief is.
This feature shouldn’t show us or any neighbor who the person is for privacy reasons.
However, if multiple people report the same thief, facial recognition software can group these incidents together. The more incidents, the higher the cost of the damage. If the total theft value for an specific thief is high, then the police would be motivated to look into it.
Each neighbor (or Ring/Amazon) could elect to report it or it can automatically be reported to the authorities. This way, it’s an individual reporting a crime.
Since we don’t get any data on the face recognition of a thief until multiple incidents are reported, privacy for a good citizen who walks by a camera is protected.
It would also be nice to link an Amazon purchase to a theft to help determine the cost a thief is causing a neighborhood. Or a way to link your order history from any online store…
