How to Prepare Your Verano Home For When You’re Traveling


Verano Plan 3 | Los Angeles/Ventura | Pardee Homes

Verano, Pardee Homes’ 55+ active adult community in Santa Clarita, was designed for living the best years of your life. For many residents, that includes traveling! Verano makes it as convenient as possible to travel without having to worry about your home. Living behind the gates of this exclusive enclave with low-maintenance home designs, maintained front yards and HomeSmart® technologies, residents only need to take a few simple steps to prepare their home before heading out on their next trip.

Monitor visitors from anywhere.
While on vacation, you can check to see who is at the front door at any time, regardless of your location, through Ring™ Video Doorbell PRO. Receive automatic alerts on your phone when someone touches your doorbell or triggers the motion sensor.

If you have someone taking care of your pet during your travels, you can even say hello as they approach your door from the Ring app. Then lock and unlock the front door remotely through the Samsung SmartThings Hub, which lets you control and manage multiple connected devices from a single app.

Stop your mail.
For extended vacations, you can either arrange for a neighbor to pick up your mail or have the United States Postal Service (USPS) hold your mail until you return. Visit USPS’ website to make a hold request online.

Pull the plugs.
As you’re recharging on vacation, your television, computer and other devices can still be drawing power. Unplug each one before heading out.

Save energy automatically.
As a Verano homeowner, you have every opportunity to save on your energy bills, both while you’re at home and as you travel, through HomeSmart features with programmable thermostats and lights.

The Honeywell Lyric™ T6 Pro Wi-Fi Thermostat lets you control your home’s temperature via voice command or mobile app using Google Home and Amazon Alexa. Through your smartphone’s location settings, your thermostat can even automatically adjust the temperature when you’re away from your home.

Did you forget to turn off a few lights before heading to the airport? Good news – you can also switch lights in your home on and off by using your phone, thanks to Lutron Caséta® Wireless Light Switches.

HomeSmart is just one component of Pardee Homes’ LivingSmart® program, which provides additional ways to cut down on your energy bill including radiant barrier roof sheathing and Energy Star™ appliances.
