What is HomeLink®?


What is HomeLink® and how does it work? HomeLink® is a wireless system that allows you to open and close garage doors or automatic gates, activate/deactivate home security systems, turn off/on interior and exterior home lights or other electronics, and more! If you’re looking to learn more about the benefits of HomeLink® and how easy it is to use, check out our service team‘s guide at Atlantic Chevrolet.

The Benefits of HomeLink®

No matter if you have a HomeLink® equipped Chevrolet Traverse, Malibu, or another Chevy model with this system, you can enjoy high-end features including:

  • 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: This system is compatible with most garage door openers and can let you know if you left the garage door open or not before you left home. HomeLink® apps can also allow you to control other in-home devices such as security systems and the lights.
  • 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®?

Programming the HomeLink® system is quite simple. Follow these instructions in order to get your system up and running:

  1. The HomeLink® system has three buttons that are located on the ceiling on the car, in most cases. All you’ll need to do is press and hold the first and third buttons until the vehicle’s interior lights begin to flash. This can take up to 20 seconds. Also keep in mind that pressing these buttons will master reset the system. You do not need to do this when adding other devices.
  2. Once the lights are flashing on the ceiling, press and hold the button you want to program while also holding the open/close button on the garage door opener. You’ll notice the light change 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. In your vehicle, press the programmed button for at least two seconds. If you see the light on the garage door opener flash, you’ll know it’s connecting.
