Online shopping has become an alternative way for people in buying things, especially in the middle of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak crisis. Besides, it is also making life easier. The problem with online shopping is when sometimes customer could not able to receive the goods when nobody at home. And it also involved safety considerations as in normal case, the good will be left outside the premises by the courier when the recipient not at home the good might be stolen. This paper aimed to design a Smart Home Package Mailbox to secure the delivery packages receive safely with good condition by reducing the problems occurring during the delivery. The Smart Home Package Mailbox is a hardware that operates by using the Quick Response (QR) code to communicate with its system. It has two compartments level which levels two for receiving package and level one for storing the received packages. Two main android applications have been developed to support the project system. The Smart Postman application is for the postman to open the mailbox door and update data in the database. While Smart Home Mailbox application is for users to track the delivery and receive notification. Once the sending package is put inside the mailbox, the sender and the recipient will be notified regarding the delivered package. This project is able to increase courier management efficiency as well as packages being delivered within expected time with good condition.
