Some early Model 3 models got here equipped with a HomeLink garage door opener much like many other cars. It was integrated into the automotive and tied into the GPS system in order that it could auto-close or auto-open the garage door once you arrived or left home.
A pair years ago Tesla stopped included the HomeLink module required to open garage doors within the Model 3 and Model Y, but it will probably still be purchased individually after delivery for $300. This price includes installation at a Tesla service center.
Nonetheless, with many garage doors now supporting WiFi connections an owner can now open them remotely through their manufacturer’s app. Elon Musk has said that Tesla will look into integrating WiFi garage door openers into Tesla vehicles in order that owner’s will have the ability to open and shut their garage doors through their cars even without the HomeLink module.
If Tesla is in a position to get garage door manufacturers onboard and integrate this feature, it is going to likely be even higher than HomeLink, as HomeLink normally can only provide an Open/Close command and it doesn’t know the present state of the garage door.
Elon Musk confirmed this in April of this yr, although we have not received an update since then.
