Acura HomeLink  

Our love of technology and connectivity has made its way into the automotive world. Acura has included the HomeLink system in many of their newly released models. This system is designed to link together with your vehicle and your home to benefit you in several ways. You can use the Acura HomeLink System to control your garage door, along with things from your automobile such as (but not limited to):

  • Garage door openers
  • Front gates
  • Lighting on the inside and outside of your home
  • Security alarm systems

Setting Up Acura HomeLink

The latest models to include HomeLink as a standard feature include the Acura MDX and the Acura TLX. Many other vehicles allow you to add it on as an optional feature. When it comes to setting up the system, it’s effortless to program on your own. The system automatically senses any original transmitters that it should integrate with. Quicktrain technology allows for your vehicle to pair quickly with your other technology.

There is a series of HomeLink buttons on the ceiling of your vehicle near the windshield. Make sure the system is clear by holding down the two outside buttons for approximately 20 seconds. From there, you can program your items.

Programming Your Garage Door Opener

Unplug your garage door opener inside your home. Use your remote a few inches from your HomeLink buttons in the vehicle. Press the opener with one hand. Press the HomeLink button of your choice at the same time. The red light should come on and blink. Plug your garage door back in, and test the system. Everything should be in sync. The process will vary from item to item.

You don’t have to worry about keeping up with any battery replacements for this system. It runs right off of the electrical system in your vehicle. This convenience feature is something you’ll quickly be able to set up, and you’re going to love what it provides you with during the lifetime of your vehicle.
