Viscount Systems to Secure 30 High-Rise Buildings
BURNABY, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Viscount Systems (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading-edge, high technology supplier of security systems and software, is pleased to announce that the company has received confirmation to secure 30 high-rise apartment buildings in Canada. The first orders were shipped in February. The projects are for MESH Touch Screen intercom systems with the ability to upgrade to Freedom access control and other Viscount applications. The value of the MESH Touch Screen orders will be $150,000.
“We are pleased to see continued improvement for both our existing MESH business as well as Freedom as we continue through 2013,” noted Stephen Pineau, CEO of Viscount. “We had a difficult time from 2009 through 2012 with our traditional intercom business since it was closely tied to the housing market. With signs that the North American housing market is improving and that housing starts are increasing we are encouraged that MESH and Freedom will both contribute to our growth over the coming years.”
About Viscount’s Freedom Encryption Bridge Solution
Freedom Encryption Bridge is the first and only access control system that allows entry devices (IC cards, RFID readers, biometrics etc.) to be connected to standard building IT networks without requiring expensive control panels that are programmed from a PC. Freedom changes the paradigm of IT friendly access control. It eliminates up to 80% of the cost of traditional systems that require the installation of control panels. And, it utilizes existing logical IT security software (LDAP or Microsoft Active Directory) to replace both the control panel component and the software component of traditional systems. Freedom drastically reduces system costs while providing a much more secure software solution.
