Viscount MESH to Secure Release Center

MESH system being used at prison release facility to secure multiple doors, connect alarm points


Burnaby, British Columbia – Wednesday, February 28, 2007 - Viscount Systems Inc. (OTC BB – VSYS.OB) today announced MESH is being installed at a center to secure recent releasees. MESH readers will be securing all doors including 65 secured resident doors and alarm points with a central command center. This is the second facility of this type using MESH. Due to the nature of the facility, site location information is confidential.

"The agency initially chose MESH due to cost. Traditional systems require masses of hardware that must be homerun to each door. With MESH network readers they estimated savings of over $50,000 in conduit before construction even began," noted Stephen Pineau, CEO of Viscount. "MESH provides a full complement of security and tracking features critical in such a facility. The status of all residents can be automatically determined as well as any curfew violations. Monitoring can also include whether residents have specific guest restrictions by sex or age and the location of guests will also be monitored."
