I have really never understood how tire pressure sensors work. Obviously, they cannot be hard wired with a rotating wheel. This would leave some type of radio signal which would require a power source. The first time I heard of these, GM was installing them on Corvette's. If this is something connected to a valve stem on a wheel, then it could be tampered with, or stolen, by anyone. I need to do some "Googling."
