Tesla Model S: Auto Opening and Closing

To operate a HomeLink device without using the touchscreen, you can automate the device to open as you approach, and close as you drive away:

1. Touch the HomeLink icon at the top of the Controls screen, then choose the device you want to automate.

2. Select the Auto-open when arriving checkbox if you want the device to open as you approach.

3. Touch the arrows to specify the distance you want Model S to be from the device before it opens.

4. Select the Auto-close when leaving checkbox if you want the device to close as you drive away.

As you approach (or drive away from) a device that is set to operate automatically, the HomeLink status icon displays a count-down message to let you know when the device automatically opens or closes. In situations where you don't want the device to automatically open or close, touch Skip Auto-Open or Skip Auto-Close at any time during the count-down message.

NOTE: Do not rely on HomeLink to ensure the device fully closes.

Resetting the Location of the HomeLink Device

If you experience situations in which you sometimes drive up to your HomeLink device and it doesn't open, or the touchscreen does not display a notification as you approach a programmed device, you may need to reset the device's location. To do so, park as close as possible to the HomeLink device (garage door, gate, etc.) and display the HomeLink settings page by touching the HomeLink icon at the top of the Controls screen. Touch the name of the device you want to reset, then touch Reset Location.

Deleting a Device

To delete a HomeLink device, touch the HomeLink icon at the top of the Controls screen. Touch the name of the device you want to delete, then touch Delete.

NOTE: You can also perform a factory reset to erase your HomeLink settings, along with all other personal data (saved addresses, music favorites, imported contacts, etc.).

NOTE: For security reasons, delete your HomeLink devices if you sell your Model S.
