Sadly, I write the last chapter in the flagrant abuse inflicted upon decent hard-working alarm individuals and companies throughout the United States of America, Canada, and the free world.
For far too long, they have had their dreams shattered numerous times as th ey contemplated etching out a decent living in their daily lives. Countless times have they rang a doorbell after someone called them to have their se curity system monitored, only to face dejection at the horrible sight of op ening that tan-colored metal housing and finding a Mona T Ronics mainboard system installed in the home or business.
Head drooping, shoulders slumped forward, head shaking from side to side, l ong breath exhaled, the alarm person turns slowly to the now greatly discon certed potential customer and exclaims with absolute disgust and anger, "It 's a Mona T Ronics board, I have to change it out and reprogram the entire system! I'm sorry, but I will have to charge you $xxx.00 for the new board/ labor.
Did I say "Sadly"? I meant gladly, happily, cheerfully, etc. It's over! It' s really, really over. It's a GREAT day in America.
I just had the joy of taking over a system this past Wednesday, and of cour se, it was a Mona T Ronics board. I did not have the forewarning of that dr eadful and atrocious sign outside. Only when I went to the furnace room in the basement did I see that horrible blue and white decal on the outside of the panel box. I informed the customer that it would cost him $xxx.00, and he had no problem with that.
...but, I decided that this was it, I would take the time to explore my alt ernative suspicions.
YOU ARE DONE HONEY!!!******************* AND HERE'S HOW YOU DO IT!!!
Okay, I am going to try to be just a logical tech for now.
Basically, the chip on the honeydew board is what keeps you from changing t he telephone numbers in 41 & 42. Soooo, just remove the chip by prying very
-carefully from the upper right-hand and the lower left-hand corners, all t he while alternating from both corners until she is out.
Now, do the same thing on a new honeydew board, and take that new chip and insert it onto that Mona T Ronics board. Now just power up, hit * and # tog ether and get into programming. And Voila!! Go to 41 & 42 and change out th e telcos as needed for your account base. While you're at it, just grab the installer for future reference...
Now just swap the chips again, and you can program the rest of the Mona T R onics board. The chip was only preventing you from changing the telcos and nothing else. I used a V20 chip on a V15 board, it will not matter. You wil l not wreck anything by doing that.
And yes, I even tested it out to the central station this morning.
Disclaimer: I have never worked for Mona, will never work for Mona, would n ever ever work for any other organization that feels that they need to prot ect their territorial business by aggressively duping millions of customers into buying their systems without mentioning to them that the mainboards a re locked out in the programming of the telephone numbers. Despicable compa nies.*******************
No longer will the recycling heaps of America be littered with Moaning boar ds. Huge beads of sweat are seen at the corporate world of Mona; fear, ange r, and dread now comes down like a dark, gloomy cloud...
Maybe I should have waited until the 21st of August so that even the stars would be aligned...(imagine the voice of Vincent Price saying this, "I see a GREAT DARKness descending upon MONA and her cohorts, the eclipse of the S un will cast a GreeaaT shadow upon MMoonaaa!!!
Enjoy! And let Freedom reign!
