Viscount to Secure Toronto Highrises

BURNABY, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 19, 2007 -- Viscount Systems (OTCBB: VSYS) today announced the company has received an order for $50,000 to secure a highrise complex under construction in Toronto. Viscount security readers will be used to secure 58 door locations and parking areas.

"Since the release of MESH Enterprise in October, our business and interest in MESH is rapidly improving," noted Stephen Pineau, CEO of Viscount. "Like many projects we are now shipping, this project was quoted two years ago due to the long construction sales cycle. With MESH in full release, our future growth is accelerating.

"The nature of the security business makes it difficult to announce the particulars of every project we are booking. Many end-users do not believe it is prudent to publicly announce how they secure their facilities. However, we have decided to begin announcing more of these types of projects to better inform our investors of the successes we are creating."
