Viscount Completes MESH EPX Pilot Project

BURNABY, BC--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Viscount Systems (OTCBB: VSYS) announced today the company has completed a pilot project with one of Canada's largest public management agencies. The pilot project included Viscount's MESH and the new MESH EPX platform. Based on the success of the initial installation discussions are now underway to install MESH at additional facilities. Potentially, the agency may phase MESH into up to 400 sites.

"MESH EPX is the replacement for our old Enterphone system but with features that are compatible with high speed internet, VOIP and other newer technologies. As an old technology, Enterphone sales had been dropping for several years and negating much of our top line MESH growth," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount.

"Now with EPX we anticipate we can begin recovering our lost Enterphone revenue while continuing to increase our MESH business. This particular agency is typically of many others with large numbers of Enterphone installations. The Enterphone systems are approaching the end of their product life and the agencies are looking for a complete security package to replace the old system. MESH and MESH EPX provides them a full array of card access, security, intercom and video solutions."
