HelloPackage is a hardware/software system that simplifies and expedites package delivery to multifamily communities. The system consists of package management, tracking and notification software paired with modular shelves and access-control hardware. To deliver packages, carriers enter the secure room, scan packages using a tablet or a handheld scanner, and place packages on any available shelf. A combination of label readers, weight sensors and computer vision allow the system to track where a package is located and who it’s for. For pick-up, residents are provided a code for room entry. The system then uses lighting, audio and package imagery to guide the residents to their packages.
