Recessed Magnetic Reed Switches

Recessed Magnetic Reed Contact Switches

Recessed magnetic reed switches are a form of security switch commonly installed on a door frame utilizing rare earth magnets. Security Savvy provides a varied selection of recessed magnetic reed switches, and miniature reed switches paired with rare earth magnets. Recessed reed switches are commonly used for residential purposes and are concealed within doorways or window frames.

The recessed magnetic reed switch is also easy to install, usually as simple as drilling a hole. These type of security switches and the corresponding magnet are made in cylindrical cases, making them easy to conceal during installation.
