got the same garage opener myself. Homelink makes couple of thing like modules for lights where you can turn on lights before you come in. Activate security system for home, etc. pretty cool if you ask me. Here is their websiterob1022 said:My garage door opener is a Lift Master (they make Sears') with the rolling code. It only took one try and about 5 minutes. I get better range with the Homelink than with the original transmitter.
What other types of devices are people using the Homelink for?
I agree, and although few would bother, you can take your remote with you when you leave the car.Sandman said:Dale in theory in any car with a garage door opener all they would need would be your garage door opener and registration with your address on it, which is usually in the glove box.
There was an actual theft ring in Ft. Lauderdale a few years back that did just that: smash the window, grab the garage door opener and registration and robbed the house when people were out...
It is a scarry thought, that is why police recommend a locked door to the garage and home alarm system.
