Gentex Announces Volkswagen as the First Automaker to Offer its Bluetooth®-Enabled Mirror for Home Automation
Gentex is a long-time supplier of electro-optical products for the global automotive industry. It supplies nearly every major automaker with connected-car technologies and advanced electronic features that optimize driver vision and enhance driving safety.
Gentex’s HomeLink is the industry’s most widely used and trusted car-to-home automation system, with over 100 million HomeLink-equipped vehicles on the road today around the world. This vehicle-based wireless control system uses RF communication to conveniently and reliably activate your garage door opener, security gate and other RF-compatible, entry-critical devices.
The Bluetooth-enabled HomeLink system works in conjunction with HomeLink Connect®, a companion app that users can configure to control individual cloud-based smart home devices or activate entire home automation routines. Once configured, the phone-enabled app pairs with the HomeLink buttons in the mirror via Bluetooth, allowing users to activate their devices without needing to interact with their phone. One HomeLink button press can activate garage doors, entry door locks, home lighting, security systems, thermostats, entry gates, and other compatible devices.
The HomeLink Connect app also provides interactive programming instructions to help users pair their HomeLink buttons to their garage door opener and other appliances. By combining RF and cloud-based wireless control for smart home devices, Gentex’s HomeLink provides drivers with the most dependable and comprehensive vehicle-to-home automation system available.
