Provided are a system and method for a secure lock box with near proximity awareness. The system includes a lock box housing defining at least one enclosable space for the receipt of a package, the lock box housing having a sealable aperture for accessing the enclosable space and an electronic lock structured and arranged to seal the aperture and enclose the space. The lock box housing further encloses a processor, a near proximity device structured and arranged to actively detect a Package Attribute from a package proximate to the lock box housing, a network component coupled to the processor, and non-volatile memory coupled to the processor having executable instructions to direct the operations of the near proximity device and the electronic lock. The system also includes a a scheduler structured and arranged to establish a schedule of delivery within the non-volatile memory including at least one Defined Characteristic for the operation of the electronic lock in response to the near proximity device detecting from a proximate package a Package Attribute corresponding to the Defined Characteristic. An associated method of use is also provided.
