How are UPS people getting into my front hall w locked door?

When it happened once, I assumed someone left the door unlocked.

But it happened several times.

How?

Normally they leave the package at the door, or they ring my bell, so I ask who it is, and I ring them in.

Lately Im finding packages inside the hall that are way too big to fit in the slot, and theres no one else living in my house to be ringing them in.

Just like TSA can get into your locked suitcase because the suitcase manufacturers build the locks that way, the lock on your building door has a keypass/fob that UPS and Amazon can utilize

Would you rather they leave it on the street?

Are you sure it's ups getting in? If I lived in a building and there were a package left outside when I arrived home, I'd probably take it just inside when I went in.

ETA just reread sorry. If it's a private home have you asked your kids?

This would make me curious enough to install one of those Ring camera systems.

I would be freaking out if I were you. Hello, not ok that they're getting in!! I wouldn't be mildly puzzled and scratching my head. This is a major breach in the security of your home.

No. UPS and Amazon delivery people don't have passkeys, unless given to them by building security.

OP, are you saying that they are able to enter your single family home?

First thing tomorrow, call a locksmith and have him replace your locks and install Ring. Check your door as well, to ensure it properly latches on closing. BH nothing has happened, but this is seriously scary stuff. Not every UPS delivery person is nice; and if they can get in, who knows who else can.

I don't want to edit, but I reread, and you mentioned doorknob lock. Are you sure no one has toggled the latch so that it doesn't lock? I do that when I take out trash, and have been known to forget to retoggle.

But even if its open, they shouldn't be trying doors.

Thanks all.

This is the outer hall it seems theyre getting into.

Then theres an inner door thats always locked.

Would that make you less fearful?

No, it's still not ok. You presume secure even in this hall. Chalilah, you don't want a dangerous person or animal taking shelter there or waiting there when you get home. Take steps to secure this hallway.

I live in a condo and UPS & Fedex have the number lock. apparently they have a source but I believe only for outside doors and possibly if it was ever provided.
I even once noticed the number printed on the outside of one of my boxes. no I did not personally provide that on order

I would be pretty concerned, besides for simply very curious. Can you call UPS? Either to get clarity on how this is happening, or to report it if it is indeed something unsafe going on.

Whoa! That is very concerning.

Can you get the combination changed? And find out at the next tenants meeting who provided that info to UPS?
