Magnetic Switch, Contact Switches

The magnetic contact switch is the first line of defense in a security system. It is the mechanism used for surface mount alarm contacts within doorways and windows. Shieldlab provides a wide selection of security alarm contact switches including: recessed magnetic reed switches, overhead door switches, push button plunger switches, and rare earth magnets.

Doors are the most common point of entry and should be protected by your alarm system. That's why WINN Security Products offers a variety of security contacts for home and commercial use. Our recessed, surface mount and commercial contacts are of high quality and designed for greater protection of doors and windows from unwanted breach. Our Next-Generation security contacts offer the most in terms of performance, ease of use, and technology. We have utilized our years of knowledge and expertise in order to provide you the right solutions for any security applications.

Homeowners should always remember to include sliding doors in the overall count, too. Depending upon a home’s size, this may end up being a lot of contacts, but it is important to avoid skipping a single door or window since each serves as a potential entry point for a burglar.

We're serious about the Quality of our WINN Security Products

Our high standards don't end with our alarm contacts. Our team works hard to provide the best customer service possible. We pride ourselves in embracing customer service, while maintaining backwards compatibility with our customers.
