What is HomeLink?

Homelink is a widely trusted and used vehicle-based wireless control system. It conveniently and safely enables you to open and close your garage door and front gate, activate and deactivate your home’s security system, and turn on or off your lighting, appliances, and electronics. All of this from three buttons, smartly integrated into your automobile’s interior.

Easy to Use. Connect your vehicle to your home in just a few button presses.

Compatible. Works with nearly all garage door openers and gate systems, and an ever-growing list of other radio-frequency (RF) controlled devices.

Smarter. With compatible garage doors, HomeLink 5 can tell you if you left your garage door open or closed.

Convenient. HomeLink is seamlessly integrated into your vehicle’s interior, and can control up to three devices.

Battery-free. HomeLink is powered by your automobile’s electrical system; it never needs batteries.

Complementary. When you’re away from home, apps give you the ability to control your RF devices. When you’re in your car, HomeLink gives you easy, always-ready functionality at your fingertips.
