Phone Number at the Front Gate
You can always dial the front gate @ 561-922-9083 to call in guests just as you always have in the past. However, you no longer need a 4 digit PIN number because the system will automatically recognize your phone number. If it doesn’t recognize your number, contact Ms. Sonjah Ferguson at the front desk.
Why Do I Need a Dwelling Live Account?
if you obtain an account, it gives you tremendous flexibility with your guests. You can do some or all of the following:
- You can authorize a guest for one day, two days, or one day from let’s say 10 AM until 6 PM
- You can create and edit your own customized permanent guest list, including vendors
- You will receive an email and/or a text message when your guest arrives at the front gate
- If your guest has a smart phone, the system will send what’s known as a QR code to their phone, which they can show to the guard at the front gate and immediately be admitted to the property
- If you have a smart phone, you should download the Apple or Android Dwelling Live application. We have additional comments on the phone app in the recommendation we make below.
How Do I Obtain a Dwelling Live Account?
It’s very easy. Send an email to the following email address: HPInfo@campbellproperty.com
Include your phone number or numbers, home address, and your email address
They will assign a log in (your email address) and give you a temporary password to access Dwelling Live
Or, you can see Ms. Sonjah Ferguson at the front desk who will create an account for you.
Once your email address is registered and you have a temporary password (which you should change), go to the following website to log in: Dwelling Live Web Page
Dwelling Live Recommendation: Most of the feedback we received on the desktop/laptop version of Dwelling Live has been predominantly negative. Nobody we’ve talked with likes their website. Therefore, if you have a smartphone, we recommend downloading either the Android or Apple Dwelling Live application. Our initial experience with the phone app appears to be more intuitive and easier to use than the desktop/laptop website.
- Visitors will no longer receive a paper pass to place on their windshield.
- We already had some, and will be having more Dwelling Live training classes. Your neighbors and/or staff members can also help you set up the application for the first time.
- If you have any questions, please come to the clubhouse for help. But remember, if you want to call in guests just the way you do now, you can continue to do such, but you won’t need a 4 digit pin number.
HP Online Ticket Purchasing System: You can buy tickets for a limited number of shows on this website. Here are some aspects of the system, which are subject to being changed.
- You’ll go to our website, www.huntingtonpointe.net, to buy the tickets.
- You choose your own seats and pay for them with a credit card.
- For now, you only have access to the next two months.
- You can buy shows individually or you can purchase them in a package.
- If you want to buy tickets in person at the box office, you can still do that via check or credit card.
- Tickets will cost the same whether you buy them online or at the box office.
- You can print out your ticket or you can send a QR code to your smartphone. How cool is that?
- If you don’t know what a QR code is, then print out your tickets.
- Handicapped seats must be purchased at the box office.
- The purchase limit is 4 tickets for each HP unit (not per person).
New LED Floodlights at the Front Entrance: We have 6 beautiful Bismarck Palm trees in the center island @ the Jog Road entrance. They were each illuminated via a 175 watt lamp that was over 20 years old. The lamps didn’t work properly and were a maintenance headache because our team had to constantly replace the expensive bulbs. The 6 new LED lamps use a fraction of the electricity versus the old lamps, and the bulbs should last for years. When you drive into the property at night, please check out how beautiful those 6 Bismarck Palm trees look with the LED floodlights.
Landscaping Updates: Check out our Landscaping page in the Resident’s section for landscaping policies/rules, photos and the latest updates on the beautification of Huntington Pointe.
New HP Unit Application: Our new residents will complete electronic applications to buy or rent at HP. Each applicant will receive a one-page direction sheet to guide him/her to the proper website. Each of our four phases has a separate security code (per the direction sheet) so that the applicant is in the correct environment for his/her on-line application. Those who are not computer savvy will be able to get assistance from their realtor or from our Campbell staff if necessary. This new application will streamline the processing for our new residents. We are indebted to Campbell’s Marvin Chery for developing this process.
Landscaping Update: Every HP Villa and Garden Apartment was inspected for dead or missing plants. The list was compiled and the Landscaping team will replace dead or missing plants after the current cool weather ends and the temperature rises. As a reminder, please do not submit landscaping work orders because the Landscaping Team will automatically take care of the problem without any owner input after we move into warmer weather. You should also be aware that this maintenance program will only take care of the front of the unit. If you want to pay for plants or trees in the rear of your unit, that is a viable option.
Long Range Planning Committee: HPA President Sue Loeser announced the establishment of a new LRPC co-chaired by Jay Sussman and Robert Tishkevich. The other members of the committee are Mickey Novak, Phyllis Sandler, and Marvin Morrell.
New Quarterly Condo Association Fees: See Phase Info located under the Resident’s section of the menu
Reminder: Our Front Gate Policy changed about 18 months ago. All visitors must be either on your Permanent Guest List or authorized by the Unit Owner with a phone call or via the Dwelling LIve application. For safety reasons, if a visitor arrives at the front gate without authorization from a homeowner, they will be denied access to the property. It’s the sole responsibility of the unit owner to authorize guests, therefore, the guards will NOT call a resident, requesting permission for a visitor to enter the community. In addition, visitors must display a driver’s license the first time they visit our community.
Reorganization of our Gyms and New TV: The HPA BOD approved the first significant change in the design of our gyms in about 26 years. The North Gym is now our cardio room while the South Gym is our weight room. Some older, unsafe machines were removed. In addition, because of insurance and national standards, we rearranged our equipment to make it a safer environment for our residents.
We have plans for adding new and better equipment in the future. The recent update enhances safety, while making our gyms more professional and appealing to both residents and potential new buyers of homes at HP. We bought a 48 inch flat screen TV for the cardio room. We added a pair of hand sanitizers to both gyms. We also tore up the old rubber matting in the free weights section which only covered 1/2 of the floor and replaced it with new rubber matting, which extends the entire width of the free weights area. See the photos below:
New Gym Instructors: Paulette is here 8:30 – 10:30 AM on Mondays while Diana’s here from 8 – 10 AM Wednesdays and Fridays. They are not personal trainers, they are instructors. Their job is to provide assistance to ensure you are using the equipment properly. They’re also available to answer any gym related questions you have.
Please note, If you observe gym equipment which is malfunctioning, advise Paulette or Diana.
In order to improve safety on our dimly lit roads where the only lighting comes from the Lollipops, we conducted an experiment. We installed LED bulbs in various areas of Kings Gate Circle to see if they improved the lighting. The LED bulbs looked terrific and our residents liked them. We then ordered 200 daylight LED bulbs which were installed throughout the phase. Our residents love the new, modern look which will make them feel a little safer at night.
Phases I and III
If you live in a villa where the dryer vent is connected to the roof, it is recommended you have the dryer vent cleaned at least once every 2 years. Failing to clean the dryer vent creates a potential fire hazard for you and your neighbors. You can use anyone you want but we made a deal with ABC (888-219-2537) where they charge $75 for the service. The process takes about 20 minutes. Let me repeat, you are free to use anyone you want, or if you’re handy, you can do the job yourself.

Ask the Energy Expert
Tiffany Spence is an energy expert at Florida Power & Light Company. She’s conducted thousands of energy audits at homes and businesses, helping customers find new ways to make their bills even lower.
Did you know the average A/C unit lasts about 15 years in Florida? Over time your A/C will lose efficiency, however yearly service and maintenance can help extend its life. If your current air conditioning system is more than 10 years old, has needed frequent repairs, or if you have noticed that it is running longer to keep your home comfortable, it may be time to consider buying a new one.
Purchasing a new A/C is a big and expensive decision. But if you are thinking about replacing your A/C before it stops working, you may be eligible to take advantage of our $150 rebate towards the purchase of a new qualifying unit. A new energy efficient cooling system could save you money on your energy bill. For example, depending on the size of your unit, if you replace a 10 SEER three-ton A/C unit with a 16 SEER system, you could save around $377 annually.
More ways to save:
If replacing your A/C is not in the budget for this year, we have gathered a list of tips that can help you maintain your unit and keep you cool this summer:
- Remove debris – On the exterior condenser/compressor, clean leaves and other debris. Cut back branches and vegetation at least two feet in all directions to ensure proper airflow around the unit.
- Air filters – Check your filter regularly for excess buildup of dirt, dust and pet hair. How often you change the filter depends on the type of filter you have, how often you run your A/C and the number of pets in your home.
- Keep your coils clean – Dirty coils force compressors to run longer and work harder than required, increasing energy usage and utility costs while decreasing the life of your unit.
- Clean evaporator drain – Make sure the drain flows freely and there is no blockage. Clean the drain pan with soap and hot water.
- Air conditioner tune-up – Consider having your unit tuned up by an A/C contractor to ensure your system is working properly.
- Inspect for duct leaks– Look for rapid dust buildup around vents in your home and remove dirt and buildup. If the ducting system is leaking air, it can cause significant energy losses, causing energy bills to increase while affecting air quality and comfort. If you suspect your duct system may have leaks, you should contact an A/C contractor to check your duct system.
Another saving tip: We also recommend setting your A/C to 78 degrees with the fan on “auto” to help you save. When you leave your home, consider raising the temperature to 82 degrees to save even more.
