The uCella is a connected smart mailbox that makes it easier than ever to ensure that even big packages are kept secure when they're dropped off at home in your absence.

This mailbox comes equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity and a special companion smartphone app. It syncs up with your Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo email in order to provide tracking numbers from order receipts. When a delivery person arrives with a package, they scan the barcode on the tracking number -- this is done using a 5-megapixel autofocus camera and 4-inch touchscreen that is built into the mailbox.

This smart mailbox makes use of technology that has been around for some time now in order to bring the simple process of collecting packages well and truly into the 21st century.
