The concept
The Integrated universal remote control can be
used to operate up to 3 functions of remote-
controlled devices such as garage door open-
ers or lighting systems. The Integrated univer-
sal remote control thus replaces as many as
three different hand-held transmitters. To oper-
ate them, the buttons on the interior rearview
mirror must be programmed with the desired
functions. Programming requires the hand-held
