Security Problem: The Reed Switch

THE REED SWITCH

CREATES SECURITY HOLE

CONSTRUCTION VULNERABILITIES

INVENTED IN THE 1930’s for telecom-munications, the reed switch was later adopted for use in security sensors to detect breaches in doorways and windows. Despite the reed switch’s widespread acceptance, an EXPLOITABLE operational flaw and construction weakness potentially undermines its effectiveness.
ARMED WITH A SIMPLE MAGNET, intruders can easily defeat a single reed switch sensor from outside and enter almost any home or business undetected.

HIGH VOLTAGE from lightening, power surges or stun guns can weld a reed switch sensor in an “armed and secure” state and may result in undetected break-ins. reed-switch-voltage

SINCE REED SWITCHES are made of fragile glass, extreme care needs to be taken when handling them. If not discovered, damaged sensors may result in undetected break-ins.reed-switch-broken

Solution: MAGNASPHERE Sensor

MAGNASPHERE

PLUGS SECURITY HOLE

VIRTUALLY UNBREAKABLE

INVENTED AND DESIGNED to address the undetected breaches of security that could occur when using easily exploitable and fragile reed switch sensors. MAGNASPHERE’S award-winning and patented technology is virtually unbeatable and unbreakable.
MAGNASPHERE provides the same external magnetic defeat protection found in the Federal Government’s most secure installations, but at a fraction of the cost and size.government-security
