What are The Benefits of HomeLink®?

Once you know the answer to “what is HomeLink®?” you’ll be wondering about the benefits of such a system. Well, Issaquah-area drivers who own a Chevrolet model equipped with HomeLink® such as the Traverse, Silverado, or Malibu get to enjoy benefits like: 

  • Easy Setup: You only need to press a few buttons to connect your vehicle to your home. 
  • Versatility: Just about all garage door openers and gate systems, as well as a wide range of other radio-frequency (RF) controlled devices are compatible with HomeLink®.
  • Control of Up to 3 Devices: From the comfort of your vehicle, you can control up to three devices in your home 
  • Safety & Security: HomeLink® apps let you know if your garage door has been left open or closed, or whether lights and security systems are off or on. This helps you feel more secure when driving around Snoqualmie!
  • Battery-Free: HomeLink® is built into your Chevy, so it’s powered by your vehicle’s electrical system. No need to charge!

How to Program HomeLink®

Programming HomeLink® is quick and easy. You can do it right in your garage in Bellevue! Just follow these steps to connect HomeLink® to your garage door opener: 

  1. Find the HomeLink® unit above the center console. It will have 3 buttons. 
  2. Press and hold down the first and third buttons until the interior lights of your car begin to flash. Usually, this takes about 20 seconds. This is the master reset. Don’t do it when subsequently adding other devices. 
  3. When the ceiling lights begin to flash, choose the button you want to program and press it while simultaneously holding the open/close button on your garage door opener. If it works, the lights will go from a slow to rapid flash. This indicates that the programming is complete.
  4. Now, leave your car and go into your garage. 
  5. Press the “learn” button on your garage door opener.
  6. Return to your Chevy and press the programmed button on your car for at least two seconds. The lights on your garage door opener may flash to indicate that HomeLink® is connecting.
