The HomeLink Wireless Control System is a radio frequency (RF) transmitter integrated into some automobiles that can be programmed to activate devices such as garage door openers, RF-controlled lighting, gates and locks, including those with rolling codes.
The “Learn” button on your garage door opener is located above the antenna wire that hangs from the motor head, it may also be under a light cover. The “Learn“button will be either green, red/orange, purple or yellow. The “Learn” button has two functions.
A rolling code (or sometimes called a hopping code) is used in keyless entry systems to prevent replay attacks, where an eavesdropper records the transmission and replays it at a later time to cause the receiver to ‘unlock’. Such systems are typical in garage door openers and keyless car entry systems.
Please Use CAUTION!
Before programming HomeLink® to a garage door opener or gate operator, make sure that people and objects are out of the way of the device to prevent potential harm or damage. Your motorized garage door or gate will open and close while you are programming HomeLink. Do not program HomeLink if people or pets are in the path of the door or gate. A moving garage door or gate can cause serious injury or death to people and pets or damage to objects.
Vehicle exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas. Do not run the vehicle’s engine while programming HomeLink. Exhaust gas can cause serious injury or death. When programming a garage door opener, it is advised to park outside of the garage.
Do not use HomeLink with any garage door opener that lacks safety stop and reverse features as required by U.S. federal safety standards (this includes any garage door opener model manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage door that cannot detect an object signaling the door to stop and reverse – does not meet current U.S. federal safety standards.
If programming a garage door opener or gate, it is advised to unplug the device during the HomeLink programming and also if performing the “cycling” process to prevent possible motor burn-up.
