Viscount Systems announces $500k in access control deployments at Canadian high rises

May 13, 2014 - 

Viscount Systems has announced that it will complete a $500k deployment of its telephone access system and the company’s biometrics-friendly Freedom access control software in a slew of Canadian high rises by the end of Q2 2014.

“The rapid, high density housing growth in the major Canadian cities of Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver have been a boon for our business,” Dennis Raefield, President and CEO of Viscount systems said. “As the housing market recovers throughout North America we expect to see a continued increase in demand for our cyber secure access control technologies.”

The company’s telephone access system – MESH, as it’s known – is also based on the company’s Freedom system. Viscount says it can be wall or pedestal mounted and features a rugged touch screen interface.

Viscount, a Canadian company, has announced several new contracts over the past year with U.S. federal government agencies for its Freedom access control system.

Reported previously in, the company most recently landed two new contracts for its biometrics-friendly technology at government facilities in Maine and Florida.

Last month, Viscount announced the appointment of Michael Pilato as the new VP of Sales and Marketing.
