Don’t look now, but in addition to the Cellmate, there are the Dreamlover2000 and two such devices by Fancy Steel. Batteries are improving all the time, and a device could also be designed to do something you don’t like if you let it run down. For example, it could stay locked if the battery runs out, or send an alert to the keyholder if you don’t recharge it before it gets down to a certain level, say 20%.Schnoff wrote: ↑Sat Jul 14, 2018 5:59 am It’s a fun story, the device as described - I think there’s a reason we don’t see “sophisticated electronic monitoring equipment” on chastity cages. I got one of those “track your dog” things and it sits unused, because even in standby, it needs to be charged once a day. So what happens to the “sophisticated monitor” and the “smart lock” when the battery runs dry?
This is best left to fiction . As fiction, I’m liking it.
I read one story with an extreme example: when the device's battery ran down to a certain level, it would give the wearer increasingly uncomfortable alerts (vibrate, buzz, shock). If he didn’t plug it in to recharge within a certain time, a blade within the device would ... well, you know. I’m not recommending anything that extreme, but the concept of an undesirable effect if the battery isn’t recharged is an interesting one.
