A Reed Switch is the same as a reed relay but with out the electromagnet.
Reed Switch Contacts are made from a ferromagnetic material (reed) which are encapsulated in glass. There are two types; Dry or Wet.
Both types of Reed Switches are identical except a Wet Reed relay has a small amount of mercury added inside the glass tube, providing a more consistent contact resistance.

The Hermetically sealed switch contacts of a reed switch are not effected by and have no effect on their external environment.
Some Reed Switches are SMT devices and may be surface mounted, while most are through-hole devices.
Be careful when cutting or bending the leads of a Reed switch, as the internal NiFe wire leads may be damaged from stress.
A reed switch should not be used as an actuator, such as a lever, push button, or toggle switch.
