If your talking about the bands that go inside the wheel, all they do is monitor the current pressure and report to the computer. The computer is set to monitor for a given pressure range (see driver side door sticker). If the tire pressure differs significantly from what the sticker says, the computer flags the warning. If you bring the tires back within range, the warning will eventually disappear. Using the reset tool will do it quicker but not change the default in the computer.
The warning doesn't happen instantly, it takes some time. I have my tires set for 50PSI even though the computer expects 65. When I went camping for a week in the mountains, I noticed the next morning that the warning was off. The entire time I was camping the warning stayed off, but on the trip home when I got back down to my normal altitude, the warning came back on.
