Before I implemented the Homelink activation within the location
command I set up the automatic garage door opening function for a
friend using a one-line script to execute the homelink command that
was triggered by the location.enter event notification.  Indeed there
were a few instances of nocturnal garage door opening that were
avoided by increasing the location radius.

But your message prompts me to remember that there's an enhancement I
should make in my code: the Homelink should only be triggered if the
car is ON.
