Hold the phone.
Are you trying to reverse-engineer the signal so that you can tell it you've pushed the button when you haven't? So that you can fudge off work?
Anyway, you'd need a frequency detector of some kind, and those are expensive...
E 123 \'Omega\': Eggman detected. Begin annihilation sequence.
Miles \'Tails\' Prowler: No, Omega, Eggman is our friend!
E 123 \'Omega\': Small forest creature has gone mad. Suggest immediate termination.

You'd be right, a 1.5v AA battery probably couldn't handle data writing. Lithium coin cell batteries last a while, and provide more voltage than alkaline AA-type batteries. I would guess that those are the types of batteries used.

You mentioned that it stores data for future review? The batteries could be changed when the data is analyzed.

Are you planning to just create a 'functional' replica (i.e. something that just copies the functionality of another device)?


When they get the data they hit a button that is just like any other.

I find it hard to fudge off at work when i'm on camera and watch from 24 hour personnel, besides the fact that I don't use this.  Another site uses it to keep track because they have less personnel.  Besides, i'm fond of walking anyways.  I put in a good 4 miles a night sometimes.

Another point, I made an FM Signal Interrupter in high school.  I could take over any signal when I tuned it into a certain frequency.  Alas though I made it in high school and has since been destroyed because it's very illegal.  Trust me, don't want to get caught with one of those,  he he he...  Whole point of the project, and the teacher made us build it for a grade too, was to understand signals and how they worked.  If it makes a difference, the state allowed us to build them for educational purposes.

Would it be correct to guess that you don't know how the buttons work?

From what this sounds like, you just tap the button with the wand, not actually 'push' anything, right?

Also, the guards would tap their wand on one last button in order to download the data off of it?

You'd actually be able to build this, or at least replicate it once you know how it works.  In what country do you live?

Yes, I have no clue.  I'm just guessing, and trying my hardest from my own reasoning.  There is no website explaining this to me, only certain articles published to the web about the tool itself.

Yes, they "tap" the button, or press it against the button.  There are no moving parts.

The supervisor goes into his fofice and downloads the data off the button the next morning he comes in and prints a report.

I live in the USA.
