Homelink with Apartment Gate opener?

Hello all.

I"m moving into a new apartment complex where they have automatic gate and I would like to use my homelink to open the gate. I haven't got the remote yet, but they looks like a "car alarm" style remote.

has anybody have any experience with gate opener?

My brother uses his homelink (Passat) to open the gate at his condo complex.

Homelink & gate opener

In reading the material in the users manual, there should be no problem program your Touareg's HomeLink with the gate opener. As long as you can use the remote.

The only problem is if it uses a roaming code, where you have to punch in the code on the "opener". I don't know if gate openers use the random code settings.

Good luck with programing your HomeLink and please let us know how it goes.

I had problems getting my Homelink to link to the gate at my complex. The best thing to do is call up homelink...the phone # is in your manual. They are very good at helping you and they are open nights and weekends. For my gate, since it was a rolling code, there was a button the guard had to push on the gate to program it. once i figured out how to program it, it took about 30 secs.

hope this helps! good luck!
