Viscount Receives Largest MESH Order

BURNABY, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2007 -- Viscount Systems Inc. (OTCBB: VSYS) announced today that The Company has received a commitment for its single largest MESH order to date. The order is for a three-phase project in Vancouver with first phase completion in 2008 and the balance scheduled by 2009. Revenue for equipment and commissioning for each phase is approximately $180,000 for a total of just over $500,000. The facilities will be deploying a full complement of MESH technology including MESH voice panels, MESH LANBot card access, and MESH alarm. Viscount's newest products, EPX voice communications technology and MESH View video recording and storage will also be used.

"We continue to see increased interest in MESH since releasing our global system last fall," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "We have used this as an opportunity to provide a more active role in certain projects with commissioning services. This provides increased margins and revenue and assists both our contractors and their customers."

"The trend towards IP enabled security devices is increasing in all regions. At the International Security Conference and Expo held at the end of March our leads increased almost 400% compared to last year as more security contractors embrace the digital future."
