Uninstalling the MortiSafe
If you should want to, you can very easily turn the MortiSafe back
into a normal digital safe just by unscrewing some wires:
The safe is now restored to normal.
Open the safe, and unscrew the panel on the back of the door
Identify the screw terminal block which has two wires
going to the MortiReceiver and two going to the safe
Unscrew the wires going to the MortiReceiver
Unscrew one of the wires going to the safe
Screw that wire back in so that both of the wires
going to the safe are connected together
