What is a Compatibility Bridge?

HomeLink, a leader in the automotive industry, is a vehicle-integrated system that controls garage door openers, gate operators and home interior and exterior lighting. As technology quickly advances, we often need to connect to existing devices still in use. Some HomeLink equipped cars need a technology bridge to properly program the HomeLink system to our full line of products. A Compatibility Bridge – is just that, a device which connect two devices that sometimes do not speak the same language – a translator of sorts!

Helpful Hints
These steps will ensure a fast and knowledgeable installation:

• One Compatibility Bridge can support up to ten devices; only one bridge needed per home.

• Battery backup garage door opener users - put the original opener remote control in your glove box to use in case of power outage.

• Note that many vehicles have tinted windows. This tinting has a metallic content which could interfere with the range of signal exiting from your vehicle and is not a defect in the opening device.

Use this tool to find out if you need a compatibility bridge to program your garage door opener to your vehicle(s).
