I assumed because of the will close in 20 ft etc that the homelink garage auto close was GPS connected and would not create a problem. But I was leaving home the other morning, started backing out with the garage open, but saw a text notification and paused. Then I continued backing out but the garage door began coming down on my roof and unfortunately, because my wheel had not blocked the garage doors own sensor, and the tesla homelink system is *not* a smart system, My roof was damaged, my garage door was damaged too. They apparently just engage based on my having paused, and the cars sensors not detecting that I was still in the garage. (clearly only the forward sensor with the 30" clearance is checked by software). Tesla's response is, yes, the homelink did set off though you were not out of your garage -- tough luck! The homelink system is not a smart system!.
