What is HomeLink®?


If you’re looking for a new Chevy in the Bossier City area, you might have come across the term “HomeLink®” in the list of technology and amenities inside the cabin. What exactly is HomeLink®? In short, it’s a wireless system built right into your Chevy that allows you to take control of a wide variety of technology in your home, such as:

  • Open and close garage doors or automatic gates
  • Activate/deactivate home security systems
  • Turn on/off home interior and exterior lights, appliances, and other in-home electronics



The Benefits of HomeLink®

There are a lot of advantages to using the built-in HomeLink® system. Mainly, HomeLink® allows you more ease of use when controlling your home, giving you some peace of mind when you’re on the Greenwood roads. Here are some of the key benefits of using HomeLink®:

  • Easy to set up: 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: The HomeLink® system is seamlessly integrated into your vehicle’s interior cabin and allows you to control up to three devices at a time, such as home security, garage door openers, and electronic gates.
  • Safety & Security: HomeLink® will alert you if your garage door has been left open or has been opened when you’re on the road. If you’ve integrated the system with compatible HomeLink® apps, you’ll also be able to have remote control over other home technology like your lights and security system.
  • Battery-Free: HomeLink® is powered directly by your vehicle’s electrical system, you’ll never have to worry about charging batteries or running out of power.

How To Program HomeLink®

If you’re wondering how to program HomeLink® in your Chevy vehicle to connect it to your garage door opener, it’s easy! Just follow these steps and you’ll be good to go:

  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.
