Sierra Monitor Corporation to Exhibit at Major South Africa Building Automation Symposium

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - Sierra Monitor Corporation (OTCBB: SRMC), a Cleantech focused company that designs, manufactures and sells electronic safety and environmental instrumentation, announced that its subsidiary FieldServer Technologies, a major gateway manufacturer in the building automation and process control industries, will be demonstrating its full range of products at the Intelligent Building Automation Symposium & Exposition which will be held at the Gallagher Convention Center in Gauteng, South Africa on September 1-2, 2009. This is the largest event of its kind in Southern Africa focusing on intelligent building design. Building owners, managers and integrators will be introduced to the latest technologies aimed at improving efficiencies and reducing energy costs. FieldServer Technologies has a significant presence in South Africa with a network of engineers and building system integrators headquartered in Johannesburg at nSoft Development.

At the exhibition FieldServer Technologies will introduce a new integrated Webserver with build-in XML support for its FieldServer range of products. AJAX technology can be used to create web pages to visualize dynamic real time data. The Webserver complements FieldServer gateways' ability to provide Machine to Machine (M2M) communications by allowing remote critical data to be viewed via a browser avoiding the need for an expensive graphical interface.

"Intelligent building automation integration results in efficient building and plant operation, while conserving resources, maximizing returns on assets, and saving energy," said Gordon Arnold, Sierra Monitor's chairman and chief executive officer, who will be attending the Exposition. FieldServer gateways connect existing trusted devices and systems into higher level technologies and services -- optimizing building and process control environments," he added.
