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 technology bridge – is just that, a device which connect two devices that sometimes do not speak the same language – a translator of sorts!
