Johnson Controls simplifies HomeLink training

Johnson Controls plans to implement “more intuitive, voice-prompted training technology” called VoiceTrain in its HomeLink wireless control system, eliminating the need to reference the owners manual to program the system. HomeLink, which is integrated into a vehicle’s overhead console, sun visor or other areas of the interior, can be used to remotely operate garage doors, estate gates, locks, home security and lighting systems. Johnson Controls said that some 35 million consumers use HomeLink. The firm said the training technology, for 2010 model year vehicles, can be activated by pushing any button on the device. A QuickTrain feature is currently available on five 2007 model year vehicles and will be available on additional vehicles later this year and next year.
