I suppose you could look for a manufacturer name and model number on the motor housing. If the manufacturer isn't out of business, it should be relatively easy to find out if the original receiver in the opener was HomeLink compatible.

And it is possible that the receiver in the opener is not even the original one so you might try to see if the receiver looks integrated or is an add-on. It is possible to piggyback a HomeLink receiver on to the original receiver so that HomeLink would also work but I would think your building management would not allow that. Here is one of several add-on HomeLink receivers I found by doing a "google": http://www.johnsoncontrols.co.uk/pub...mpfaenger.html

I can certainly see why a gated community or building would not allow HomeLink. Imagine all the work that would be required every time somebody got a new car and wanted to program their built-in HomeLink transmitters. Even worse, outsiders could sneak in and quickly program their portable HomeLink transmitters so they could get in anytime they wanted. And it is easy to inadvertently erase all programmed HomeLink compatible transmitters from a HomeLink receiver's memory.

Also keep in mind that HomeLink receivers have a limit on how many transmitters can be programmed. The manuals for our HomeLink compatible opener manuals do not state a limit and only say that "several" transmitters can be programmed. Some HomeLink opener manuals state that the transmitter limit is seven and that attempting to program an eighth transmitter drops one transmitter from the receiver's memory.

Keep trying, I remember it took me quite a while but once I made it work, it's nice to have the gate on one button and my garage door on the other button so I can leave those silly remotes at home (only to be stolen from your car).

To get my gf's apartment gate to work with the Homelink in my IS, i had to delete all the stored ones in the car. Then i reprogrammed it and it worked. Also are you programming it with enough distance from the gate so the gate isn't actually receiving the signal? That can cause it to not work too. My gf's apartment has an old click button system too, so yours should work in the IS.
