HomeLink opens the door to bikers

Johnson Controls releases a portable version of HomeLink.

More than 35 million cars have built-in HomeLink, a radio-frequency transceiver system that enables drivers to open the garage door without getting out of the car. But what about poor bikers? They have garages, too. The solution is the HomeLink Wireless system, a portable version of the device that has been available to date only as a factory-installed option in cars. HomeLink Wireless, which is getting its debut at the SEMA 2006 show in Las Vegas this week, comes with a variety of handle-bar mounts to finally bring bikers in from the cold.
