Recessed Magnetic Reed Switches

Recessed reed switches are a type of security device installed in door and window frames utilizing small rare earth magnets. We provide a varied selection of recessed reed switches, and miniature reed switches paired with rare earth magnets. Recessed reed switches are commonly used for residential purposes since they can be easily concealed within doorways or window frames.

Popular for window frame installation, the magnets are small, installed in cylindrical cases that can be attached to fragile window surfaces. They often install with the simple drilling of a hole.

Primus Cable offers the Reed Switch Set, Miniature Recessed (Flanged) with 1/2” Standard Gap, 12" Leads - Closed Loop for installing security switches in windows and doors. It measures ¼” in diameter and 1.125” in length and can be installed where standard switches are too large. This recessed reed switch set is flanged to prevent inadvertent pulling of the switch into the wall.

Another type of recessed reed switch Primus Cable offers is the Window Channel Reed Switch - Up To 1/2" Gap - w/Terminals - Recessed w/ Cable Leads - Closed Loop. This recessed reed switch comes with a ¼” x ¼” x 1/8” rare earth magnet specially designed for mounting within the aluminum track of a window. The magnet fits most window tracks and can be compressed to fit channels from 5/16” to 1”. Grippers hold the magnet securely in place, and the reed switch installs easily without drilling. The magnetic reed switch itself has contact terminals included in its design. The plated contacts also resist shocking and freezing.
