What Is HomeLink®?

When you purchase a new Chevy car, truck, or SUV, you’ll have the option to add on the HomeLink® feature. What is HomeLink®? This advanced technology connects your car to your home, allowing you to:

  • Remotely open and close your garage doors or automatic gates
  • Active/deactivate your home’s security system
  • Turn your home’s interior and exterior lights on and off, as well as certain appliances and in-home electronics

You can learn more about HomeLink® and how it can simplify your life in Birmingham with Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover, below!

HomeLink® Benefits

Why opt into HomeLink® with your new Chevrolet vehicle? Vestavia Hills and Bessemer drivers will enjoy a number of advantages with this advanced convenience technology, including:

  • Ease of Use: Setting up HomeLink® is as easy as pressing a few buttons.
  • Compatibility: HomeLink® is compatible with just about any garage door opener and automatic gate system, as well as a wide range of other radio-frequency controlled devices.
  • Control Up to 3 Devices: HomeLink® is integrated right into your vehicle’s interior, usually existing by the rearview mirror. There are three buttons so you can connect up to three devices.
  • Safety & Security: HomeLink® does more than allowing you to open your own garage door and automatic gate – it also alerts you if you’ve left them open when you head out to Helena. You can also connect HomeLink® with your home’s security system, so you can remotely activate or de-activate it when you’re not home.
  • Battery-Free: HomeLink® is fully powered by your Chevy’s electrical system, so you’ll never have to remember to change batteries in order for it to work.

How Do I Program HomeLink®?

Programming your HomeLink® system is as quick and easy as pressing a few buttons in sequence. Follow these step-by-step instructions for more details:

  1. There are three buttons on the HomeLink® unit, which is most commonly found on the ceiling of your car, above the center console. Simultaneously press and hold the first and third buttons until your car’s interior lights start flashing. This may take up to 20 seconds. It’s important to note that, once you’ve successfully programmed your garage door opener, pressing the first and third buttons will then act as the master reset, so you should not push them when programming additional devices in the future.
  2. When the interior lights begin to flash, press and hold the button you wish to program while simultaneously pressing the open/close button on your garage door opener. Your interior lights should switch from a slow to rapid flash, indicating successful programming.
  3. Go into your garage and press the “learn” button on your garage door opener.
  4. Return to your vehicle and press the newly programmed button for at least two seconds. You may see your garage door opener’s lights flash, indicating that it is connecting.
