It is the latest thing in HVAC, it is Wireless/Bluetooth.

I check each register with a IR thermometer, looking for that. I find it periodically.

prosperity at any cost, safety first instead of duty first,

See now HVAC guys here only check at the supply plenum. This means they would never catch that problem. This is why checking at the supply registers for temp differences is a big thing. I always get into arguments with HVAC contractors about this exact thing.

That is why I take plenty of pictures. They cannot refute it and it makes it easy for them to find.
