This was added to reduce the delivery truck traffic up the driveway. The dogs tend to go ballistic, which can be very distracting when someone is on the phone.
It worked as planned. The dogs never even know when the delivery people are here. One of the remote cameras on the property sees the inside of the mouse house clearly, so we can tell when a package or envelope arrives.
The quiet here during the day is blissful now. It's the kind of peace you might have to be old to appreciate.
