Del, you made me learn something new.
I thought homelink was just a fancy name for a garage door opener system ... didn't know you could control whatever the hell you want with it.
Tell me more about how to rig up the home lights and what have you with it. I don't have a garage, but I'd be willing to buy whatever is needed to be able to turn the lights on from my car when I get home at night and the like.
Here is a link with more information on programming your new Homelink with just about anything you want to turn on...
DIY for programming the Homelink Garage Door Opener (GDO) in the BMW E39 - bimmerfest - BMW Forums
Also go to HomeLink for some interesting video of homelink in action.
I got some more DIYs coming since I'm off work this week and have my parent's house and their driveway to myself.
EDIT: Also if you can find a power/ground source in your car then you can put Homelink in any BMW.
EDIT 2: Oh my parent's home isn't 100% on my homelink yet. I only added the porch lights since it was already remote powered. But the door bell needs to be updated to one of the newer bells and the gate needs the electronic arms before I can open them from my car. A New Homelink-ready doorbell costs like $30 and Electric Gate arms around $300- $500. So those will have to wait.
But in my apartment I have 2 remote power box one with my foyer light plugged in and the other my TV-Entertainment Center plugged in so I homelinked these to the module in my car. The Home Alarm is done the same way thru the keyfob remote that arms the alarm for my place.
