Hi
I’ve successfully programmed Homelink to control my garage door as well as our subdivision community gate.

My issue (or at least my desire) is that I’d prefer that we have the capability to have the car auto open (issue the code) without user intervention. I had this on my Teslas.

I realize that some people have multiple garage doors. But Tesla allowed you to choose auto open or not.

Do others agree this would be useful? How do we communicate this request to Lucid?
Thanks

I agree. That’s one of relatively few features I miss from my Tesla. I also don’t like that it takes several button pushes to activate Homelink, and the touch screen doesn’t always recognize the button push, necessitating another push. Annoying.

Totally agree!! Also when you reverse out of the garage the back up monitor populates that upper screen and no homelink option is on the screen. Have to put the car in park close the garage then back into reverse. Seems like a lot of extra steps.. am I missing something? Of course ‘ auto-close’ would solve all of this.

This has been noted many times and no doubt will be improved in the future. You don’t have to put the car in park, just tap the X on the camera screen, then access Homelink.

The additional problem is that when you touch the X and get homelink to come up so you can close the garage, the car turns off the backup camera. That forces you to put the car in park and then into reverse again. As I come into and out of the garage several times a day, this may be the biggest annoyance I have with the controls.

Just picked up my car last week - "auto open" for homelink would be great! I really miss this Tesla feature...

It's annoying but you can just push the parking camera button on the lower right of the pilot panel to get the cameras back up.

Yeah, you don’t have to switch gears

While I agree with you that it’s a big annoyance, several of us found a pretty cool workaround using Alexa and an app called LiveKey. It’s fully explained in a thread on this forum.

Once it’s set up, all you do, as you exit your garage is say “Alexa, close garage door”.

It’s totally hands free. Since Alexa is built into the Air, you configure the Alexa LiveKey app to control your garage door.

Yea, but with MyQ you get the annoying garage light flashing and beeping (presumably a safety measure) when the door is closed via Internet. For those that have people at home, it’s a PITA. Tesla solved this long ago for the Model S, I’m sure Lucid will get around to fixing it.

That is, indeed, a safety measure implemented by MyQ.
