Netvox R718F LoRaWAN Reed Switch Open/Close Sensor

Netvox’s LoRaWAN reed switch utilises a magnetic switch to detect whether two objects are separated or not. An example application is to detect when a door or window is open for security purposes. The wireless sensor sends an alert message to a centralised monitoring system via the LoRaWAN protocol when the switch is separated.

Netvox LoRaWAN Reed Switch Sensor


  • Wireless range of up to 10 km (depending on environment)
  • Requires 2 x ER14505 AA Lithium batteries
  • LoRaWAN Class A compatible
  • Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS)
  • Improved interference immunity
  • Improved power management for longer battery life
  • Encrypt-RF Security (Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange + AES-128 CBC for sensor data messages)
  • Battery Life of up to 5 years (determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables)
