What is HomeLink®?

homelink

 

If you drive a new Chevy in Wallingford, you may have noticed the HomeLink® system. So what is HomeLink®? This is a wireless control system that’s built into your new Chevy that allows you to open and close garage doors, activate and deactivate home security systems, and even turn home interior and exterior on and off. Learn more about the benefits of the HomeLink® system with our service team at Hamden Chevrolet today.

The Benefits of HomeLink®

If you own a HomeLink® equipped Chevy model like the Silverado or Malibu, you can enjoy features such as:

  • Ease of Use: Connecting your vehicle to your home is simply a matter of pressing a few buttons.
  • Compatibility: HomeLink® is compatible with just about all garage door openers and gate systems, as well as a wide range of other radio-frequency (RF) controlled devices.
  • Control Up to 3 Devices: Tastefully integrated into your vehicle’s interior, the HomeLink® system allows you to control up to three devices.
  • Safety & Security: With most compatible garage door openers, the system will be able to let you know if your garage door has been left open or closed. HomeLink® apps also allow you to have remote control over other in-home devices, such as the lights and security system, providing you with an extra level of peace-of-mind when you’re on the road.
  • Battery-Free: Since HomeLink® is powered by the electrical system in your Chevy you’ll never have to worry about changing batteries.

How Do I Program HomeLink®?

No matter if you’re in Milford, North Haven, or beyond, you’ll find that programming HomeLink® is fairly simple. Follow the instructions to connect your garage door opener to your vehicle:

  1. The HomeLink® unit features 3 buttons and is most commonly located on the ceiling of the car above the center console. Press and hold down the first and third buttons until the interior lights of your car begin to flash. This usually takes about 20 seconds. Note that pressing the first and third buttons is the master reset, you do not need to do this when subsequently adding other devices.
  2. Once the ceiling lights begin to flash, press and hold the button you wish to program while simultaneously holding the open/close button on your garage door opener. The lights should go from a slow to rapid flash, indicating that the programming is complete.
  3. Go into your garage and press the “learn” button on your garage door opener.
  4. Return to your vehicle and press the programmed button on your car for a minimum of two seconds. You may see the lights on your garage door opener flash, indicating that it is connecting.
