Viscount's MESH to Secure Biotech Facilities

BURNABY, BC--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - Viscount Systems (OTCBB: VSYS) announced today that MESH has been selected to secure facilities at India's leading Biotech and Pharmaceutical company. The initial installation is due for completion in April and will include MESH IP nodes and readers. Scheduled enhancements will include a database interface to employee tracking and time and attendance software.

"With numerous sites now installed in India we are seeing increasing interest with additional projects at the specification stage," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "MESH is extremely attractive for export markets over and above the cost and technology benefits in North America. In particular, a MESH server is much less expensive to ship and service that numerous control panels and as an IT system falls under more favorable customs rules in many countries than proprietary electronic hardware."
