I just bought a 2006 Sonata with Homelink. I really like the idea of
being able to control the Garage Door from the car instead of having a
remote hanging there. I also want to take it a step further and control
the family room ceiling light from the car. Any idea what I need to do
this? I am hoping to just replace a wall switch. If you have done this,
could you please tell me what I need to buy as far as item and model
number? I dont really want any home security...I just want to be able
to control one ceiling light from the car.
Go to www.homelink.com or www.smarthome.com and check out the X-10 devices.
You need a wall switch and a receiver. I have one light controlled by the
car, but I have other lights on timers and remotes. Nifty stuff. I've been
using it for over 20 years and it is very reliable.
Thanks Edwin! I am really getting excited about the possibilities. I
have been looking at the Insteon stuff. Do you know if it is possible
to control big current draws like a stove? It would be nice when you
shut off the lights from your car, it insure the stove was off as well!
Have a Merry Christmas
