Magnasphere and the physical security vulnerability you may not know about

If you have an alarm system that's dependent on the decades-old reed switches like the one pictured below, you should know they can be easily defeated with a mere compass and a magnet. It's pretty eye-opening...

Certainly a good reason to have two, three, or (depending the country you live in and your stance on self-defense) more layers of security in your building or home! :-)

A good option for beefing up your security and preventing this type of physical breach is offered by Magnasphere. I was recently introduced to the Magnasphere wireless door/window security switches (MSS-RFS-100). It's a great technology, especially if you have a need for a wireless security sensor configuration. They make standard security contacts as well. Either way, it's worth a look-see if this is in your line of work.
