Tesla Garage HomeLink Tip

If you have a Tesla, Garage, and Homelink, this tip might save you from getting locked out of your house. If your front door has a code to be unlocked and it is accidentally locked or jammed, you can open and click on the Tesla App > Controls > Homelink. This way your garage door will open, and you’ll be able to enter your home from the garage’s side. You can also let a neighbor or delivery guy put packages in your garage when you’re not at home so that they’re not left on your doorstep.
