The first automatic garage door was actually invented
Because of this, Johnson controls has developed the Homelink Visor. Instead of using the standard type of remote for the opening and closing of a garage door, this system has a garage door remote actually built in to the driver's side sun visor of the owner's car. The Homelink Visor Remote is factory equipment on some Lincoln, Mercedes, and Audis, as well as other makes and models of cars. You can also order a Homelink Visor Remote kit to install in many cars. The advantage of this is that it is highly unlikely that you will lose your garage door remote. The convenience of the placement makes it a great way to keep and use your garage door controller. This Add-On can be used to program your own home garage door opener by following these simple instructions. These can be found in the Homelink Visor instruction manual that comes with the system. How to Program Your Homelink Visor Remote. You will need to have your Garage door's original remote to program the Homelink Visor. Make certain the batteries are fresh. A new battery is best. If your garage door receiver uses an antenna, make certain it is hanging down. 1. On your visor, press and hold the two outside buttons until the indicator button begins to flash.

Simultaneously, using both hands, press the button on the remote and the corresponding button on the visor. Hold them. 4. Watch the indicator light. Once it stops blinking and turns to a solid light, the visor button should now perform the same function as the remote.
