I managed to wake mine up by putting the allow stem into the chuck of a cordless drill and giving it a spin for a few seconds.

You can achieve the same by tying a 60 - 80 cm long piece of string around the stem and then swinging the string in a circular motion. The sensors wake up at a surprisingly low rate of rotation.
Triumph uses sensors manufactured by LDL (https://www.ldl-technology.com) in France. These sensors also read and transmit the tyre temperature. Unfortunately Triumph decided to ignore the temperature signal and only show the pressure on the TFT screen.

Ride safely

Unlike my ultra cheap - yet reliable - Chinese external system ;-)

I used to do the string method until it broke once and cause havoc as the sensor flew across the room!

The lack of temperature display has been an issue back before the Mk1 Explorer but it would have been good to see them implement it when they switched to the TFT displays.

Not only do the sensors transmit the tyre temperature information, but it's also present on the CAN bus with the pressure and battery state data.
...Desire ends in satisfaction...
