    I'm guessing the answer to this is no, since my searchs have come up empty, but here goes.

    Is it possible to use the Tesla iOS app to remotely operate the garage door (obviously with the car in the garage)? ]

    Sometimes I'd like to remotely open my garage door and it would nice if that could be done from the app (using the car as the transmitter). Probably not possible due to security reasons, but thought I'd ask...

    Yes. I believe with the app from Tesla, your fob must be near the car. However with the app from Allan Wong, that is not required.

    Also, the Tesla app won't activate homelink if the charging cable is connected.

    Not sure about remote S.
