My take on the message from the machine is that the machine recognized the GPS tracker (watch) that Finch placed in his hand as a threat , then notified Finch thru his ear piece & Finch responded by stepping on the watch .
Reese also knows/trained that gifts are to be taken with the thought of suspecting a trojan horse & that is why he handed it off to Finch . Reese has Never accepted gifts, payment . The only payment he did accept was forwarded to what he felt were victims .
That's how I took all that in , Finch & Reese have a set of rules for security & accepting a item of any kind that could be traced is forbidden
