If the owner has to turn up with the key then the 'reset button' might just as well be taking the batteries out for a couple of minutes. I inferred from the article that a consequence of the bug is that an affected property owner has to be physically present to fix things. The button suggestion from 'vir' doesn't solve this problem.
